Bitter Sweet Symphony - Lyrics by Verve, The


Lyrics

Cos' it's a bittersweet symphony this life...
'cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Trying to make ends meet , you're a slave to the money then you die.
Try to make ends meet
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down...
You're a slave to money then you die
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the pain lives , yeah.
I'll take you down the only road i've ever been down

You know the one that takes you to the places
No change, I can change, I can change, I can change,
Where all the veins meet yeah,
but I'm here in my mould , I am here in my mould.

But I'm a million different people from one day to the next...
No change, i can change
I can't change my mould , no,no,no,no,no,no,no
I can change, i can change

But i'm here in my mold
Well I never pray,
I am here in my mold
But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah.
But i'm a million different people
I need to hear some sounds that recognise the pain in me, yeah.
From one day to the next
I let the melody shine, let it cleanze my mind , I feel free now.
I can't change my mold
But the airwaves are clean and there's nobody singing to me now.
No, no, no, no, no


No change, I can change, I can change, I can change,
Well i never pray
but I'm here in my mould , I am here in my mould.
But tonight i'm on my knees yeah
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I can't change my mould, no,no,no,no,no,no,no
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, i feel free now

But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now
(Well have you ever been down?)

(I can change, I can change...)
No change, i can change

I can change, i can change
Cos' it's a bittersweet symphony this life.
But i'm here in my mold
Trying to make ends meet, trying to find some money then you die.
I am here in my mold
You know I can change, I can change, I can change,
And i'm a million different people
but I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould.
From one day to the next
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next.
I can't change my mold
I can't change my mould, no,no,no,no,no,no,no
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
I can't change
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)

(It justs sex and violence melody and silence)
'cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
(Been down)
Try to make ends meet
(Ever been down)
Try to find some money then you die
(Ever been down)
I'll take you down the only road i've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
Where all the things meet yeah

You know i can change, i can change
I can change, i can change
But i'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And i'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no,
I can't change
Can't change my body,
No, no, no

I'll take you down the only road i've ever been down
I'll take you down the only road i've ever been down
Been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Have you ever been down?
Have you've ever been down?
