Produced by Nick Lowe. Cruel to Be Kind (original version) Lyrics. Oh, I can't take another heartache Though you say you're my friend I'm at my wits' end You say your love is bona fide But that don't coincide With the things that you do And when I ask you to be nice, you say. You've gotta be cruel to be kind in the right measure Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign Cruel to be kind means that I love you, baby (You've gotta be cruel) You've gotta be cruel to be kind.

Nick Lowe co-wrote the song with his Brinsley Schwarz bandmate, Ian Gomm, for the Brinsley Schwarz album, It's All Over Now, though said album was never officially released. In 1979, Lowe re-recorded the song for his second solo album, Labour of Lust. Lowe and Gomm were hoping the song would be a pop hit for Brinsley Schwarz, and crafted it for mass consumption. Lowe only grudgingly recorded it, and he considered it an aberration - a pop sell-out song. I must be cruel only to be kind Thus bad begins and worse remains behind. Lowe revealed the musical influence behind this song to The . Club: "I wrote with 'The Love I Lost' by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes in mind. This was Lowe's highest charting hit in the US, where it peaked at (coincidentally, it also peaked at in the UK, Canada and New Zealand).
