Basia – My Cruel Ways lyrics

I closed my eyes--a blind and cold-hearted fool,
Last night i lost my mind and came so close to losing you
So close to losing you
Misread your smile, misunderstood your tears,
Ignored the pleading voice and every sigh
Even your words of love i would not listen

It's a lesson i'll never forget
No communication gave rise to fear
Tell me--who's to blame

What i really meant to tell you--i panicked,
'cause i would die if something happened to you
I'd die if something would...

But i'm so spoilt by your patience and devotion
That only now i recognize some of my cruel ways
Some of my cruel ways
Maybe it's good, maybe it was meant to be
There was no other way you could get through
Now it's my turn to get through to you baby...

It's a lesson i'll never forget
No communication gave rise to fear
Tell me--who's to blame
What i really meant to tell you--i need you
And i would die if something happened to you
I'd die if something would...
What i really meant to tell you--i love you
And i would die if something happened to you
I'd die if something would...

What i tried to tell you baby, what i tried to tell you darling
Could not live without you honey, would not live without you, no...
If only you were with me baby, if only you were with me darling
'cause i've been waiting for you honey, i've been waiting for you...

I closed my eyes--a blind and cold-hearted fool,
Last night i lost my mind and came so close to losing you,
So close to losing you...
So close to losing you...
