"Heavy Cross" as written by and Nathan Howdeshell Hannah Blilie....
It's a cruel, cruel world to face on your own
A heavy cross to carry along
The lights are on but everyone's gone
And it's cruel

It's a funny way to make ends meet
When the lights are out on every street
It feels alright but never complete
Without joy

I checked you
If it's already been done, undo it
It takes two
It's up to me and you to prove it

On the rainy nights, even the coldest days
You're moments ago but seconds away
The principal of nature, it's true but
It's a cruel world

We can play it safe or play it cool
Follow the leader or make up all the rules
Whatever you want, the choice is yours
So choose

I checked you
If it's already been done, undo it
It takes two
It's up to me and you to prove it

I trust you
It's already been done, undo it
It takes two
It's up to me and you to prove it

I checked you
If it's already been done, undo it
It takes two
It's up to me and you to prove it

I trust you

    General CommentI was a little bit confused when I read the lyric here. Because this is the lyric I know and it is from the booklet form the CD.

    ooohh oh ooooh, oh oh oh ohhh
    ooohh oh ooooh, oh oh oh ohhh

    It's a cruel cruel world, to face on your own,
    A heavy cross, to carry alone,
    The lights are on, but everyone's gone,
    And it's cruel

    It's a funny way, to make ends meet,
    when the lights are out on every street,
    It feels alright, but never complete,
    without you,

    I trust you, if it's already been done, undo it,
    It takes two, it's up to me and you, to prove it,
    All the rainy nights, even the coldest days,
    you're moments ago, but seconds away,
    The principal of nature, it's true but, it's a cruel world,

    ooooh oooh oohh, ooh ooh oooh ooh, ooo wooah

    We can play it safe, or play it cool,
    follow the leader, or make up all the rules,
    whatever you want, the choice is yours,
    So choose,

    I trust you, if it's already been done, undo it,
    It takes two, it's up to me and you, to prove it,

    ei ei ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye oh oh,
    ei ei ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye eh, ye eh, ye eh,

    I trust you, it's already been done, undo it,
    It takes two, it's up to me and you, to prove it,

    ei ei ei, woah wo, yeah eh
    ei ei ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye eh, ye eh, ye eh,

    I trust you, if it's already been done, undo it,
    It takes two, it's up to me and you, to prove it,
    ei ei ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye oh oh,
    ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye eh, ye eh, ye eh,

    I trust you.

    General CommentI think it's possibly about her relationship with a boyfriend.

    "It's a cruel cruel world, to face on your own,
    A heavy cross, to carry along
    The lights are on, but everyone's gone
    And it's cruel"

    She could be talking about being abandoned by everyone, and how she's alone and being overwhelmed.

    "It takes two,
    It's up to me and you, to prove it,
    On the rainy nights, even the coldest days,
    You're moments ago, but seconds away"

    Talking about a boyfriend she probably isn't over yet, their relationship just ended, but she thinks he's in her future as well.

    General CommentThe very first time this song came on the radio, and I heard the first line...

    >> It's a cool cool way, to feast on your arm!

    I was like "LOL, WHAT THE F***!" XD

    --
    Yeah, I had to come here just now to check what it really said; just thought i'd throw in this little comment while i'm here. xD
