Cate – The Ruler Lyrics

The Ruler Lyrics – Cate

You’re arrogant
But I thought it was confidence
You’re smooth so I believed the things you’d say
After a couple weeks
You were kinda mean to me
You said that you were going through some things
You can’t explain

And you hurt me
Cause you’ve been hurt before
I still said sorry
Though I was lying on your floor
I’ve gotten really good at being nice in times I shouldn’t
I try to empathise rationalise the things you do yeh
You give me rhinestones
And I try to find the diamond
You say it’s a cruel world sure
But you don’t have to make it crueler
You don’t have to be the ruler

You pick me up
Drive me round and build me up
Then drop me off and drive right to her house
You own the place
At least you do inside your brain
You fantasize arriving and your subjects all bow down

And you hurt me
Cause you’ve been hurt before
I still said sorry
Though I was crying on your floor
I’ve gotten really good at being nice in times I shouldn’t
I try to empathise rationalise the things you do yeh
You give me rhinestones
And I try to find the diamond
You say it’s a cruel world, sure
But you don’t have to make it crueler
You don’t have to be the ruler

You don’t have to write these rules that
I can’t follow
So you punish me
In Soho
It’s my fault
I should’ve known
“I’m a smart girl
With a heart of gold”
You said it right to me
But now you’re gone
And your hands are clean

I’ve gotten way too good at loving you in times I shouldn’t
I try to empathise rationalise the things you do yeh
You give me rhinestones
And I try to find the diamond
You say it’s a cruel world, okay
You say it’s a cruel world, sure
But you don’t have to make it crueler

You don’t have to be the ruler
You don’t have to be the ruler
