Song Lyric Sunday – Cruel

I am having another try at joining in with the blogging game that a nice blogger called Jim runs.

This is a song called “Cruel” and it is performed by The Veronicas, who are pretty cool! If you are wondering why that guy is in the trunk of the car, you will have to watch the video to another of their songs “You Ruin Me” to understand what he has done to deserve that! BTW…they F-bomb in the first verse. The video to this song makes a lot more sense if you have seen the video to “You Ruin Me”.

“Cruel” is written by the two chicas who make up The Veronicas, Jessica and Lisa Marie Origliasso, along with Leah Haywood, Daniel Pringle, Robert Ellmore.

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 f*****’ kills me that we’re done (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 looking like that, oh oh
Cruel
The way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer and 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 and turn it into winter

I’m makin’ out like I don’t care
But in her sleep I’d 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 looking like that, oh oh
Cruel
The way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer and 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 and 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
(No, I’ve never been so wrong
No, I’ve never been so wrong)
Once upon a time I used to dream I’d be your wife
I could hear the bells were ringing, I was dressed in white
No, 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 looking like that, oh oh
Cruel
The way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer and 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 and turn it into winter

Cruel
The way you treat me like a stranger
Cruel
When you’re looking like that, oh, oh
Cruel
The way you touch her when you kiss her
Take my endless summer and turn it into winter

You’re so cruel

The video is kinda macabre I guess.
They had a huge hit with their single “You Ruin Me” which is an awesome song. The video for that tracks helps you realize why they have that guy tied up in the trunk.

The funny thing is that “You Ruin Me” is kinda depressing. I love it man, but it has so much pain in it. So this next song Cruel, is a complete contrast, They are are obviously still mad with anger, but it’s past the vulnerable pain sad feeling and not it’s dangerous anger – kinda like hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Well that is my take on it.
