So Cruel

We crossed the line
who pushed who over?
it doesn’t matter to you
it matters to me

we’re cut adrift
but still floating
i’m only hanging on
to watch you go down… my love

i disappeared in you
you disappeared from me
i gave you everything you ever wanted
it wasn’t what you wanted

the men who love you, you hate the most
they pass through you like a ghost
they look for you but your spirit is in the air
baby… you’re nowhere

you say in love there are no rules
you’re so cruel

desperation is a tender trap
it gets you every time
you put your lips to her lips
to stop the lie

her skin is pale like God’s only dove
screams like an angel for your love
then she makes you watch her from above
and you need her like a drug

you say in love there are no rules
you’re so cruel

she wears my love
like a see-through dress
her lips say one thing
her movements something else
oh love
like a creaming flower
dying every hour

and you don’t know it it’s fear or desire
danger the drug that takes you higher?
head of heaven
fingers in the mire

her heart is racing… you can’t keep up
the night is bleeding like a cut
between the horses of love an lust
we are trampled underfoot

you say in love there are no rules
you’re so cruel

to stay with you i’d be a fool
you’re so cruel
