"Cruel" as written by Daniel James Pringle, Robert David William N Ellmore, Leah ...
Wish I could say you're not the one
My heart hangs on you're having fun
We can't be lovers and we can't be friends
But I still want you and I can't pretend
It fucking kills me that we're done

A little twist of the knife, yeah
A little salt in the cut, yeah
A little thorn in the side
And it stings like hell

Feels so
Cruel, the way you treat me like a stranger
Cruel, when you're lookin' like that
Oh oh
Cruel, the way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer
Turn it into winter

Cruel, the way you treat me like a stranger
Cruel, when you know me like that
Oh oh
Cruel, the way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer
Turn it into winter

I'm making out like I don't care
But in her sleep I cut her hair
We can't be lovers and we can't be friends
But I still want you and I can't pretend
The way it hurts it's just not fair

A little twist of the knife, yeah
A little salt in the cut, yeah
A little thorn in the side
And it stings like hell

Feels so
Cruel, the way you treat me like a stranger
Cruel, when you're lookin' like that
Oh oh
Cruel, the way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer
Turn it into winter

Cruel, the way you treat me like a stranger
Cruel, when you know me like that
Oh oh
Cruel, the way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer
Turn it into winter

Once upon a time I thought that we were going strong
What we had would never move no it would never fall down
I've never been so wrong
No I've never been so wrong

Once upon a time I used to dream of being your wife
I could hear the bells were ringing I was dressed in white
I've never been so wrong
No I've never been so wrong

A little twist of the knife
Cruel, the way you treat me like a stranger
Cruel, when you're lookin' like that
Oh oh
Cruel, the way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer
Turn it into winter

Cruel, the way you treat me like a stranger
Cruel, when you know me like that
Oh oh
Cruel, the way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer
Turn it into winter

Cruel, the way you treat me like a stranger
Cruel, when you're lookin' like that
Oh oh
Cruel, the way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer
Turn it into winter

Oh
You're so cruel
