Bittersweet - Lyrics by S Club 7


Lyrics

I still think about how it used to be
So entwined in my own lies, surrounded by this make believe
I've been held by despondency
I should have known the road I chose would run out on me (oh no)

I could've faded
Been jaded
By every consequence
Every word that you hurdled
Was part of my defense
You can hurt me
Desert me
It makes no difference

I give as good as I get

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I'm not going to go that way again (never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Wouldn't get the time to comprehend (you should've known that)
You should've known it would make me stronger
I was never gonna fade away (don't you know that)
I keep it coming, my destiny aint running away from me
And it's all so bittersweet

In my life, I had no room for comprimise
The things I've done have been the ones I have had to leave behind
Look in my eyes, you barely recognise
The woman who depended on you to sing a little praise or criticise (oh no)

So I hide it
Divide it
Bout what I feel inside
Now I take it
Or make it
I'm gonna be alright
Whether you need me
Believe me
You'll never hurt my pride

Finally all this feels like

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I'm not going to go that way again (never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Would'nt get the time to comprehend (you should've known that)
You should've known it would make me stronger
I was never gonna fade away (don't you know that)
I keep it coming, my destiny aint running away from me
And it's all so bittersweet

Look into my eyes
I wont be left behind
Everything's going to be fine
And I have never felt like this
I have no need to reminisce
Those old days have gone
And I keep holding on

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I'm not going to go that way again (never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Would'nt get the time to comprehend (you should've known that)
You should've known it would make me stronger
I was never gonna fade away (don't you know that)
I keep it coming, my destiny aint running away from me
And it's all so bittersweet

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I'm not going to go that way again (never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Would'nt get the time to comprehend (you should've known that)
You should've known it would make me stronger
I was never gonna fade away (don't you know that)
I keep it coming, my destiny aint running away from me
And it's all so bittersweet

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I'm not going to go that way again (never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Would'nt get the time to comprehend (you should've known that)
You should've known it would make me stronger
I was never gonna fade away (don't you know that)
I keep it coming, my destiny aint running away from me
And it's all so bittersweet

(Fade)
