Cruel to Be Kind [Single Version]
by Nick Lowe



Oh I can't take another heartache
Though you say you're 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

[Chorus]
You've 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've gotta be cruel)
You gotta be cruel to be kind

Well I do my best to understand dear
but you still mystify and I want to 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

[Chorus]

Well I do my best to understand dear
but you still mystify and I want to 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

[Chorus: x 4]
