So Cruel Lyrics

We crossed the line
Who pushed who over?
It doesn't matter to you
It matters to me

We're cut adrift
But still floating
I'm only hanging on
To watch you go down ... my love

I disappeared in you
You disappeared from me
I gave you everything you ever wanted
It wasn't what you wanted

The men who love you, you hate the most
They pass right through you like a ghost
They look for you, but your spirit is in the air
Baby, you're nowhere

Oh love
You say in love there are no rules
Oh love
Sweet-heart
You're so cruel

Desperation is a tender trap
It gets you every time
You put your lips to her lips
To stop the lie

Her skin is pale like God's only dove
Screams like an angel for your love
Then she makes you watch her from above
And you need her like a drug

Oh love
You say in love there are no rules
Oh love
Sweet-heart
You're so cruel

She wears my love like a see-through dress
Her lips say one thing
Her movements something else
Oh love, like a screaming flower
Love
Dying every hour

And you don't know if it's fear or desire
Danger the drug that takes you higher?
Head of heaven
Fingers in the mire

Her heart is racing, you can't keep up
The night is bleeding like a cut
Between the horses of love and lust we are trampled
Underfoot

Oh love
You say in love there are no rules
Oh love
Sweet-heart
You're so cruel

Oh love
To stay with you I'd be a fool
Oh... sweetheart
You're so cruel

What a deep lyrics, how soft and tender is Bono's voice! This is simply one of the best song ever made. It is about a desperate lover who cannot let love go away but knows that she is that type of woman who always get him down on her knees. Also gives the message that true love is harsh and cruel, makes you addicted to it like your favorite drug. You are actually high when you are in love!
