So Cruel (Bono's Solo Performance)

We crossed the line, who pushed who over?
It doesn't matter to you, it matters to me
We're cut adrift, we're still floating
I'm only hangin' 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, sweetheart, 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, sweetheart, 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, love

You don't know if it's fear or desire
Danger, the drug that takes you higher
Head in heaven, fingers in the fire

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, sweetheart, you're so cruel

Oh, love, to stay with you I'd be a fool
Sweetheart, you're so cruel
