Verve — Bittersweet Symphony lyrics

Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony this life...
Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the 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't change, I can't change, I can't change,
But I'm here in my mould, I am here in my molud.
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next...
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no, no, no~

Well I've never prayed,
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 airwaves are clean and there's nobody singing to me now.

No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
But I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould.
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no~

Have you ever been down?
I can't change, I can't change...

Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life.
Trying to make ends meet, trying to find somebody 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.

You know I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
But I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould.
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next.
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no~

(It just s** and violence melody and silence)
(It just s** and violence melody and silence)
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(It just s** and violence melody and silence)
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(Been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)(Lalalalalalaaaaaaaa...)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Have you ever been down?)
(Have you ever been down?)
(Have you ever been down?)
