Bittersweet Symphony - Lyrics by Verve


Lyrics
'
Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life

Try to make ends meet

You're a slave to money then you die
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 veins meet yeah,

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change

But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold

But I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold

No, no, no, no, no


Well I never pray

But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
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


No 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
I can't change

Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life

Try to make ends meet

Try to find some money then you die
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?
