The Gossip - Heavy Cross Lyrics

ooh oh ooh, oh oh oh ooh
ooh oh ooh, oh oh oh ooh

It’s a cruel cruel world, to face on your own,
A heavy cross, to carry along,
The lights are on, but everyone’s gone,
And it’s cruel

It’s a funny way, to make ends meet,
when the lights are out on every street,
It feels alright, but never complete,
without joy,

I checked you, if it’s already been done, undo it,
It takes two, it’s up to me and you, to prove it,
On the rainy nights, even the coldest days,
you’re moments ago, but seconds away,
The principal of nature, it’s true but, it’s a cruel world,

ooh … ooo woo ah

We can play it safe, or play it cool,
follow the leader, or make up all the rules,
whatever you want, the choice is yours,
So choose,

I checked you, if it’s already been done, undo it,
It takes two, it’s up to me and you, to prove it,

ei ei ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye oh oh,
ei ei ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye eh, ye eh, ye eh,

I just knew, it’s already been done, undo it,
It takes two, it’s up to me and you, to prove it,

ei ei ei, whoa wo, yeah eh
ei ei ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye eh, ye eh, ye eh,

I checked you, if it’s already been done, undo it,
It takes two, it’s up to me and you, to prove it,
ei ei ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye oh oh,
ei ei ei, oh oh oh oh oh, ye eh, ye eh, ye eh,

I just knew
