Soundtracks – Cruel To Be Kind - Letters To Cleo lyrics

Oh I can't take another heartache~Though you say your my friend, I'm at my
Wit's end~You say your love is bonafide, but that don't coincide~
With the things that you do and when I ask you to be nice~You say~You gotta be

Cruel to be kind~In the right measure~Cruel to be kind~It's a very good
Sign~Cruel to be kind~Means that I love you
Baby~(You gotta be cruel)~You gotta be cruel to be kind

* Well I do my best to understand dear~But your still mystified~And I wanna
Know why~I pick myself up off the ground~To have you knock me back down~Again
And again and when I ask you~To explain~You say~You gotta be


Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh...

[Repeat *]
