  • With the customers too long now
    It seems the curtain's closed
    And the lights are on
    I guess there's going to be no encore for us
    You're a mystery in the street
    and the men would pay good currency
    And you let them down so softly
    For an ounce of your cruelty, you would

    Leave your house keys in my door
    And they'd fit because you want them to
    Such coincidence, it always befalls you
    It gets so far beyond comedy that

    How can I play that part when I'm jogging in your slow lane
    now ?
    Could you just have a heart ?
    Give me an ounce of your cruelty, could you

    There's a whistle in the street
    There's a night so cloaked with secrecy
    But I'm keeping my nose clean
    I've drawn the curtains closed
    Until it's summer and these crickets wake me

    And your breath will light the dawn
    But you'll wake up with a thorn in your side
    Hey it's only me, you should turn it around
    And wake me up with your cruelty

    How can I play that part when I'm jogging in your slow lane
    now ?
    Could you just have a heart ?
    Give me an ounce of your cruelty
    How can I play that part when I'm jogging in your slow lane
    now
    Could you just have a heart ?

    Give me an ounce of your cruelty
    And you'll leave it alone and let it rot
    An ounce of your cruelty means
    You'll stay at home
    And deprive me of your pleasure
    Hey could you do that ?

    No way around it
