Adam Ant - Cradle Your Hatred Lyrics



I am sorry I eat my soup with a fork
I am sorry I don't listen when you talk
Stand up
I am sorry I never took the load of you
Stand up
I am sorry if my behaviour seems too cruel

I am sorry it's time to talk, it's time
Stand up
I am sorry that you're not me and I'm not you
Stand up
I am sorry for all the shit I've put you through
Stand up
I am sorry I stole away your perfect dream
Stand up
I am sorry for all the time I didn't kiss you
It doesn't matter
Stand up

[Chorus (x2):]
You cradle you hatred like a baby
Slave to resentment lately
Stand up
God only knows when it's gonna stop
Whatever I say is okay as long as you come out on top

I am sorry we're not like the cartoon family
Stand up
I am sorry but I see that as nothing to envy
Stand up
I am sorry no-one has ever sworn at you
I am sorry 'cause they sure have sworn at me
Let me explain:
A poor boy's dreams are the only luxury
I am sorry we're always lockong horns
I am tired of sitting on the dunces step
The dunces cap just another croen of thorns
It's time...

[Chorus]

I am sorry but I see that as nothing to envy

  13. Lee Woodhead

    This is a great song and album. Came upon it by accident really. Which is apt because I bought 4 tickets and then I broke my leg and only got the cast off the day he was playing at The Ritz in Manchester on 1 April 2024. So I was on one leg and he turned up over an hour late and didnt apologise and acted like a twat throughout the gig. Then I had to take all the flak from my mates. But I still love the twat. We all make mistakes. Especially me I'm a right cunt. Xxx

  14. Gem Marshall

    Amazing. Who else does his best album as a "comeback album"??

  16. Chynaash

    This album is his life's story. This song speaks a lot to me and almost like it speaks for me. Don't know about anyone else but yeah. This one is my favorite of the lot.

  17. Sara Wickline

    This song has a lot of truth in it. I hope it makes a hit.
