What you've got, you had to steal 
That's the reason 
For how you feel
Considerin' what you've done so far
I'm rather amazed
At where you are 

Lift your head up, baby
Pull yourself together
Nothing's worse than dying slow
There's no reason, darlin',
 Reason whatsoever
That we can't end this game of touch and go 

It's such a cruel world
When you have to think twice,
And you're caught up in this roundabout 
It's such a cruel world
When your back's against the wall and there's no way out 

You're not giving it up, but you're giving it out
 Seems too me,
You got a little too much doubt 
Augmentation,
Is what you need
Your generosity  Looks a lot like greed 

You might call me crazy 
If you don't understand it
There's no way for you to know
You say love is hazy,
And you don't demand it
But can't we end this game of touch and go 

It's such a cruel world
When nothin' goes right 
And the plans you made
 Start falling 'round you
It's such a cruel world
Well, just throw me the rope, baby
And pull me out 

You've got that kind of love,
It flows like a fountain 
But sometimes love can be unkind 
My kind of love, you know
It's higher than a mountain 
But love can be so hard to find 

Lift your head up, baby
Pull yourself together
Nothing's worse than dying slow
There's no reason, darlin', reason whatsoever
That we can't end this game of touch and go 

It's such a cruel world
When you have to think twice
And you're caught up in this roundabout 
It's such a cruel world
When your back's against the wall and there's no way out 

It's such a cruel world
It's such a cruel world out there baby
It's such a cruel world
It's such a cruel cruel world and there's no way out

Get you right 
Want to get you right 

Oh I
I see darkness in your future baby
Oh I
In a tunnel black as night 
Oh I
See a rich man with his hand out baby
Oh I
Know a seer with no sight 
Oh I
 Watch fire burn those bridges baby
Oh I
Feel a wrong turn into right
