So Cruel (lyrics)

 

One man can’t save the whole world

Though he save 1628 souls

It sounds like many but it’s not enough

Why so many people so cruel

 

We’re all the same deep down inside

Feel mostly love, tell some little white lies

But tell me do those soldiers really feel nothing at all

Why must they kill people in war

Oh why must they be so cruel

 

Daba da da da bah bey

Dah dey oh ey oh

Daba daba dab a bey

Da dey da bey oh

Daba da da da bah bey

Dah dey oh ey oh

Ey oh ey oh

 

The broken skin of a sweet little child

Couldn’t every message be slightly more mild

Ok, so everyone has something to say

But what is wrong with simple words today

Oh why is the world so cruel, yeah

 

Daba da da da bah bey

Dah dey oh ey oh

Daba daba dab a bey

Da dey da bey oh

Daba da da da bah bey

Dah dey oh ey oh

Ey oh ey oh

 

It never hit me before

Makes me crazy they’re so cruel

It never hit me before

Makes me crazy they’re so cruel

 

Daba da da da bah bey

Dah dey oh ey oh

Daba daba dab a bey

Da dey da bey oh

Daba da da da bah bey

Dah dey oh ey oh

Ey oh ey oh

 

 


Wall of Words (lyrics)

 

You come over

You start to build

My defence is up

I need a stronger shield

Cos you are breaking my heart

You say we need to talk

I’ve heard that one before

I try to listen

 

But you break me down

With your wall of words

I can’t explain how much they hurt

You break me down

With your wall of words

Won’t you hear my cry?

 

Sticks stones

They will break my bones

And your words they are hurting me

Panic strikes

Oh don’t go home tonight

I’ll miss our foolish ways

I’ll be empty oh please stay

I feel the distance

 

As you break me down

With your wall of words

I can’t explain they hit deep and it hurts

You break me down

With your wall of words

One day you’ll listen to me

 

Cos I take no shame in pointing out the positive things

So compatible in every opposite way

You sparkling clean me a little mean

Now it’s my turn to speak

 

I want to tell you

Got a message of my own

I sometimes find it hard

Just feel a little alone

Did you ever think oooh

Maybe I had changed

Got news to tell you

Need you too in every way

Now you should listen

 

 

Else I’ll break you down

With my wall of words

Just listen once

Cos I need to be heard

I’ll break you down

With my wall of words

Won’t you listen to me?
