Cruel - Lyrics

When I was young they all said "She's A Star
One day, those people will know who you are"
That's all I thought about
But then I found out
That for me growing up felt more like growing down
Losing myself getting lost in the crowd
But I said I was fine,
And hid when I cried

(Cruel) the way that you treat me
(Cruel) the things that you do ain't
(Cool) you always letting me down, down, down
Sometimes it's cruel to be kind
But I think you're cruel all the time

I've not always been this resentful I swear
If you don't like the truth, I don't care
Cause luck is just a word
And prayers are never heard
I work everyday but feel more like a slave
I should make a wish and not wish life away
But one day you'll see, the things I could be

(Cruel) the way that you treat me
(Cruel) the things that you do ain't
(Cool) you always letting me down, down, down
Sometimes it's cruel to be kind
But I think you're cruel all the time

Why do you always come back to hurt me, hurt me?
Why do you always come back to hurt me, hurt me?
Why do you always come back to hurt me, hurt me?
Why do you always come back to hurt me, hurt me?

(Cruel) the way that you treat me
(Cruel) the things that you do ain't
(Cool) you always letting me down, down, down
Sometimes it's cruel to be kind
But I think you're cruel all the time

Sometimes it's cruel to be kind
But I think you're cruel all the time
