Phoenix O’Neill – Cruel World lyrics

Verse 1
Oh I was lost and hurt, a sad soul
‘Cause all the universe showed me was a cruel world
Oh everybody that I loved had let me down
Even strangers I didn’t know of had scarred me somehow
‘Cause all I ever do is give all my love
But I don’t hear those eight letters that much
Chorus 1
And all I wanted was to feel loved
Oh was I asking for too much?
Oh do I have to break these walls?
Do I have to let them fall?
‘Cause all I wanted was to feel loved
To feel loved

Verse 2
I prayed to my angels, all those sleepless nights
Oh I became reckless, just wanna feel alive
I never heard from them no, they just left me to fight
All of these demons, I couldn’t leave behind

Chorus 2
And all I wanted was to feel loved
Oh was I asking for too much?
Oh do I have to break these walls?
Do I have to let them fall?
‘Cause all I wanted was to feel loved
To feel loved

Middle Eight
My body is present but my head lives in my past
Can’t talk to nobody no, no
I’m afraid that they’ll all laugh
So I suffer in silence, dealing with my emotions
If I could then I would then maybe I’d be more open

Chorus intro
‘Cause all I wanted was to feel loved
Oh was I asking for too much?
For too much

Chorus 3
And all I wanted was to feel loved
Oh was I asking for too much?
Oh do I have to break these walls?
Do I have to let them fall?
‘Cause all I wanted was to feel loved
To feel loved
Chorus outro
To feel loved
To feel loved, to feel loved
To feel loved
To feel loved, to feel loved
To feel loved
