Again and again“

Kontext: I pick myself up off the ground to have you knock me back down
Again and again and when I ask you to explain
You say, you've got to be...
Cruel to be kind in the right measure

Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby, you got to be cruel, you got to be cruel to be kind.
