[Intro]
C C Em Em F F G G (2x)


[Verse 1]
C C Em Em
Oh, I can't stand another heart-ache

F F Dm7 Dm7 G G
Though you say you're my friend, I'm at my wits end

C C Em Em F F Em Em
You say your love is bona fide, but that don't coincide

Dm Dm F F Em Em F F G G
With the things that you do, when I ask you, to be nice - you say



[Chorus]
F F G G Em Em Am Am
You gotta be cruel to be kind in the right measure

F F G G Em Em Am Am
Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign

F F G G Em Em Am Am
Cruel to be kind, means that I love you

G G C C Em Em F F G G
Ba-by, you gotta be cruel to be kind



[Verse 2]
C C Em Em
Well I do my best to understand you (it)

F F Dm7 Dm7 G G
But you still mystify, and I wanna know why

C C Em Em
I pick myself up, off the ground

F F Em Em Dm Dm F F
To have you knock me back down, again and again

Em Em F F G G
When I ask you to explain - you say



[Chorus]
F F G G Em Em Am Am
You gotta be cruel to be kind in the right measure

F F G G Em Em Am Am
Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign

F F G G Em Em Am Am
Cruel to be kind, means that I love you

G G C C Em Em
Ba-by, you gotta be cruel to be kind

But you still mystify, and I wanna know why

I pick myself up, off the ground

F F Em Em Dm Dm F F
To have you knock me back down, again and again

Em Em F F G G
When I ask you to explain - you say



[Chorus]
