When I Was Cruel (no. 1) by Elvis Costello

did you talk your way out of this,did someone flip your switch

now there is only right or wrong ,can you tell which is which

but it was so much easier,when i was cruel

 

why did you leave your happy home,why did you travel far abroad

so you could sleep with strangers

you must have heard just how absurd

the words poured out of you, you fraud

I guess you don't know what pain is

 

so dont pretend you're innocent

do i look like your fool

i guess you have forgotten, when i was cruel

 

Oh, when i was cruel, and i could make you so unhappy

lonely cowards followed me like ghouls

and you liked me too...when i was cruel...oh you know you did

 

But if you should feel anything, a signal from within

go back in your laboratory, and try to dial it in

and if you should feel anything, a signal from without

abandon your dreams of vengence

so dont pretest your innocents, the truth is hard to judge

Perhaps you have forgetten when, i had a grudge

 

Oh but i was cruel and i would make you very sorry

lonely cowards followed me like ghouls

and you liked me too...when i was cruel...oh you know you did...
