Cruel To Be Kind  Nick Lowe

[C]Oh, I can't stand another [Em]heart-ache
Though you [F]say you're my friend, [G]I'm at my wits end
[C]You say your love is [Em]bona fide, but that [F]don't [Em]coincide
With the things that you [F]do, when I [Em]ask you, to be [F]nice - you [G]say
You gotta be [F]cruel to be [G]kind in the right [Am]measure
[F]Cruel to be [G]kind, it's a [Em]very good [Am]sign
[F]Cruel to be [G]kind, [Em]means that I [Am]love you
[G]Ba-by, you gotta be cruel to be kind[C-Em-F-G]

Well I do my best to understand you (it)
But you still mystify, and I wanna know why
I pick myself up, off the ground
To have you knock me back down, again and again
When I ask you to explain - you say


Verse 2 - Well I do my best ...

CHORUS (3x) fade
