Cruel Summer
Hot summer streets
And the pavements are burning
I sit around

Trying to smile
But the air is so heavy and dry

Strange voices are saying
(What did they say)
Things I can't understand

It's too close for comfort
This heat has got right out of hand

It's a cruel
(Cruel)
Cruel summer
Leaving me here on my own

It's a cruel
(It's a cruel)
Cruel summer
Now you've gone

The city is crowded
My friends are away
And I'm on my own

It's too hot to handle
So I got to get up and go

It's a cruel
(Cruel)
Cruel summer
Leaving me here on my own

It's a cruel
(It's a cruel)
Cruel summer
Now you've gone
You're not the only one

It's a cruel
(Cruel)
Cruel summer
(Leaving me)
Leaving me here on my own

It's a cruel
(It's a cruel)
Cruel summer
Now you've gone

It's a cruel
Cruel summer
Leaving me here on my own

It's a cruel
Cruel summer
Now you've gone
You're not the only one

It's a cruel
(Cruel)
Cruel summer
(Leaving me)
Leaving me here on my own

It's a cruel
(It's a cruel)
Cruel summer
Now you've gone
You're not the only one

It's a cruel
(Cruel)
Cruel summer
(Leaving me)
Leaving me here on my own

It's a cruel
(It's a cruel)
Cruel summer...
