Track Name: A Gift
I'm just a gift to the women of this world
I'm just a gift to the women of this world
Responsibility sits so hard on my shoulder
Like a good wine, I'm better as I grow older, and now -
- I'm just a gift to the women of this world
I'm just a gift to the women of this world
I'm just a gift to the women of this world
It's hard to settle for second best
After you've had me, you know that you've had the best
And now you know that -
- I'm just a gift to the women of this world
(I'm just a gift to the women of this world)
(I'm just a gift to the women of this world)
Responsibility sits hard on my shoulder
Like a good wine, I'm better as I get older, and now -
- I'm just a gift to the women of this world
You know that I'm just a gift to the women of this world
Just a gift now
(I'm just a gift to the women of this world)
(I'm just a gift to the women of this world)
(I'm just a gift to the women of this world)
(I'm just a gift to the women of this world, just now)
(I'm just a gift to the women of this world, just a gift)
(I'm just a gift to the women of this world)
I'm just a gift to the women of this world
I'm just a gift to the women of this world

Track Name: Cruel To Be Kind
Oh, I can't take another heartache
Though you say you're my friend, I'm at my wits end
You say your love is bona fide
But that don't coincide with the things that you do
And when I ask you to be nice, you say

You gotta be
Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby, you gotta be cruel to be kind

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 again and again
And when I ask you to explain you say

You gotta be
Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby, you gotta be cruel to be kind

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 again and again
And when I ask you to explain you say

You gotta be
Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby

You gotta be
Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very, very, very good sign
Cruel to be kind that means that I love you
Baby, you gotta be cruel
So, baby, you gotta be cruel
Said, baby, you gotta cruel to be kind
