Elvis Costello When I was Cruel#1 Lyrics

Last updated: 01/17/2011 10:00:00 AM

Did you talk your way out of this?
Did someone flip your switch?
Now there is only right or wrong
Can you tell which is which?
But it was so much easier
When I was cruel

Why did you leave your happy home?
Why did you travel far abroad?
So you could sleep with strangers
You must have heard just how absurd
The words poured out of you, you fraud
I guess you don't know what pain is

So don't pretend you're innocent
Do I look like your fool?
I guess you have forgotten
When I was cruel

Oh, when I was cruel, and I could make you so unhappy
Lonely cowards followed me like ghouls
And you liked me too
When I was cruel
Oh you know you did

But if you should feel anything
A signal from within
Go back in your laboratory
And try to dial it in
And if you should feel anything
A signal from without
Abandon your dreams of vengeance
So don't protest your innocence
The truth is hard to judge
Perhaps you have forgetten when
I held a grudge

Oh, when I was cruel, and I would make you very sorry
Lonely cowards followed me like ghouls
And you liked me too
When I was cruel
Oh you know you did
