​Cynical

This song is by Hue And Cry and appears on the album Showtime! (1994).

I ask nothing from you
I never believe the truth
That's my my principle
Just call me cynical
No disappointments at all
No expectations to fall
Love is inimical
When you're so cynical

I've looked at it all before
I'll look at it all again
Nobody surprises me
'Cause I think the worst of them
Oblivious to the storm
Don't care if it rains or shines
You think of the good old days
I think of the bad new times

Optimism - had my fill
And every hope I kill
I want to lift my face
But I know I never will

I ask for nothing from you
I never believe the truth
That's my fine principle
Just call me cynical
No disappointments at all
No expectations to fall
Love is inimical
When you're so cynical

A hard woman is good to find
No sugar sweet sentiment
Whatever she gives to me
Is only out on rent
Don't gimme utopia
Just give me the means to thrive
And maybe these acid tears
They will start to dry

Optimism - had my fill
And every hope I kill
I'm losing everything
As I bite that bitter pill

I ask for nothing from you
I never believe the truth
That's my fine principle
Just call me cynical
No disappointments at all
No expectations to fall
Love is inimical
When you're so cynical
I ask for nothing from you
I never believe the truth
That's my fine principle
Just call me cynical
No disappointments at all
No expectations to fall
Love is inimical
When you're so cynical
So cynical, so cynical, no no

What do I do, I love to hate myself

Well, I ask for nothing from you
I never believe the truth
My fine principle
Just call me cynical
No disappointments at all
No expectations to fall
Love is inimical
When you're so cynical
I ask for nothing from you
I never believe the truth
My fine principle oh
Just call me cynical
No disappointments at all
No expectations to fall
Love is inimical
When you're so cynical
So cynical, so cynical no
Said I love to hate myself
So cynical, so cynical
Said I love to hate myself
So cynical, so cynical
I love to hate myself
So cynical, so cynical
Said I love to hate myself
I ask nothing from you
I never believe the truth
Oh just call me cynical
