Sweet Cruel World - Lyrics

You say that it's never felt like home
But, baby, you haven't kicked off your shoes
You cry that you don't wanna feel trapped
But I'm only here to help you lose all your blues
Besides, it's a wonderful town
I wish you'd give it a try
'Cause there's still stars in the sky you've never seen
And if you stay with me I could show you what I mean
You pine for the bright lights that you're missing
And I cast a stone into the sky
And you ask me if I can take this little trip
I can go anyway that the wind can blow
Besides, it's a wonderful city
I could give it a try
'Cause there's still stars in the sky I've never seen
And if I go with you, you could show me what you mean
We're seven steps in and this tight rope is thin
If we turn back now I fret we'll hit the ground
Besides, it's a wonderful world
We should give it a try
'Cause there's still stars in the sky we've never seen
And if we don't let go we could find out what it means
Oh, what it means, what does it mean
