I'm in my quicksand
I'm at my wit's end
It's cool to be kind, in the right measure.
You got to be cruel to be kind in the right measure.
Oh, I can't wait another heartache
Though you say you're my friend, I'm in my wet sand
You say your love is bowl of flies, but that's no co-ed sight
Oh, I can't take another heartache
Though you say oh my friend, I'm at my wit's end
You say your love is bonafide, but that don't coincide
Well I do my best to understand this
But you're still mystified, and I oughta know why
I pick myself up off the ground to have you back me back down
Well I do my best to understand dear
But you still mystify and I want to know why
I pick myself up off the ground to have you knock me back down
But you still missed the fight
But you still mystify
You gotta be cool to be kind
You gotta be cruel to be kind
