"Cruel" as written by Dane Aaron Rumble, Te Awanui Reeder and Samuel Robert King....
Baby, this is really goodbye. The curtains bout to fall and i'm about to walk out your life.
Hate me, if you like. Girl im tired of being burned sorry aint gonna cut it this time.

And did you wanna stay there, you can lead your heart astray, and if you close your eyes, i'll go away.
But i can tell you right now since the damage is done don't bother picking up the pieces, rather you'd fade away.

How could you be so cruel to me and yet she can be so cool about it.
Guess the rest is history. Hey i'll catch you soon but i doubt it, i doubt it, i doubt it.
Don't wanna hear another word about it, about it, yeah.

Baby, this is really goodbye. Well excuse me if i'm mad, you really hung me out to dry.

And did you wanna stay there, you can lead your heart astray, and if you close your eyes, i'll go away.
But i can tell you right now, since that damage is done don't bother picking up the peaces, rather you'd fade away.

How could she be so cruel to me and yet she can be so cool about it.
Guess the rest is history. Hey i'll catch you soon but i doubt it, i doubt it, i doubt it.
Don't wanna hear another word about it, about it, yeah.

This is more than just a break up song, plans for life have to break the fall, slap in the face kinda wakeup call, well too bad a rich man to wakeup for.
We used to be tight, right as the rain, since that night no other night be the same, it's fair to say she aint right in the brain, she like poison put right to the vein.

Was it all my fault, please tell me did i push you away?
Was it my absence led to the damage that eventually led you astray?
Where did we go wrong, wait a minute what am i tryna say?
You messed up, it's on you (turn around and) please walk away.

How could she be so cruel to me, yet she can be so cool about it?
Guess the rest is history. Hey i'll catch you soon but i doubt it, i doubt it, i doubt it.
Don't wanna hear another word about it, about it, yeah.
