"Can I Trust You With My Heart" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Travis Tritt. It was released in November 1992 as the second single released his CD T-R-O-U-B-L-E. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart. The song was written by Tritt and Stewart Harris.
The narrator first explains how special it is in falling in love with a person of the opposite sex, and the difficulties that can occasionally arise with it. He then elaborates on his own relationship with a significant other and goes on to explain that while he has developed a trust in her, he wonders if that trust is good enough to advance in spending the remainder of his life with her, especially if their relationship will ultimately result in marriage.
The music video was directed by Jack Cole, and is almost entirely in black and white, save for a love scene in a motel room which is in color.
