Lyrics
You are the most infuriating person I've ever met
We argue all night and both of us end up getting so upset
I knew I was wrong
But that raging feeling still drove me on

CHORUS:
And it's so embarrassing, so embarrassing
I wish that I could cry 'cos that's all I wanna do
Cry instead of brusing you
Cry, do what a man's not supposed to do
In public, on the street
Let me ask you something
When was the last time you saw a man cry on TV?
And it's agony

I managed to control myself and I walked away in the end
Away from violence or breaking down in front of my friends
I told them all lies
I said a speck of dust had blown in my eyes

CHORUS

Unfriendly world embrace your friends
They're all around you
For productivity divide your enemies
And you'll keep smiling, you'll keep smiling, you'll keep smiling

And telling me, "ah shut up you sissy"
And it's agony

I don't care who is left or who is right and who is wrong
'Cos when I get a bee in my bonnet it's always you who gets stung
Oh what a pain
When you can't shed a tear without feeling ashamed

CHORUS

And it's tearing me apart
