Cruel Summer 2001

Hot summer streets
And the pavements are burning
I sit around
Too hot to handle, baby
Trying to smile
But the air is so heavy and dry
How could you leave me waiting
Strange voices are saying
What did they say
Things I can't understand
It's too close for comfort
This heat has got right out of hand

(chorus x 2)
It's a cruel, cruel summer
Leaving me here on my own
It's a cruel, cruel summer
Now you've gone

The city is crowded
My friends are away
And I'm on my own
Too hot to handle, baby
It's too hot to handle
So I got to get up and go

(chorus)
You're not the only one
(chorus)

(bridge x 2)
In the city in the summertime
All I ever wanted was your love
Come on and make it shine
Can you open the heavens up above
