Oh, I can't stand another heart-ache though you say you're my friend, I'm at my wits end
G                    Bm                         C - Bm - Am
You say your love is bona fide, but that don't coincide
                         C          Bm              C         D
With the things that you do, when I ask you, to be nice - you say

              C           D   Bm            Em        C           D           Bm        Em

G                 Bm                            C   -   Bm   -  Am
I pick myself up, off the ground, to have you knock me back down
            C           Bm             C          D
again and again, when I ask you to explain - you say

               C           D  Bm            Em        C           D           Bm        Em
You gotta be cruel to be kind in the right measure, cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign
