Bitter Pill
Billy Idol Lyrics


Riding down this road
Like I've riden down a million
I've run thru the epic rome
But I can't miss town
I laughed at all the signs
They say speed will kill ya'
A hit of you to slow me down

And I've forgotten
How to fly
But I'll remember
Before I die

It's a crooked line I follow
It's a rocky road I ride
It's a bitter pill I swallow
Just to keep you by my side
Oh my

I'm driving without sleep
There just ain't no tommorow
Because misery is always colorblind
I've taken every remedy for ignorance and sorrow
Something to cure this wicked mind

And I've forgotten
How to fly
But I'll remember
Before I die

It's a crooked line I follow
It's a rocky road I ride
It's a bitter pill I swallow
Just to keep you by my side
Just to keep you satisfied

And I've forgotten
The reason why
But I'll remember
Before I die

It's a crooked line I follow
It's a rocky road I ride
It's a bitter pill I swallow
Just to keep you by my side
Just to keep you satisfied

It's a crooked line I follow
It's a rocky road I ride
It's a bitter pill I swallow
Just to keep you by my side
Just to keep you satisfied
Just to keep you by my side
Satisfied
Satisfied
It's a wicked world baby

I'm riding down this road
Like I've riden down a million
I've run thru the epic rome
But I can't miss town
I laughed at all the signs
They say speed will kill ya'
It took you to slow me down

A hit of you to slow me down
It took of you to slow me down

A hit of you to slow me down
It took of you to slow me down

A hit of you to slow me down
It took you to slow me down, baby

A hit of you to slow me down
It took you to slow me down

"Bitter Pill"

Riding down this road
Like I’ve ridden down a million
I’ve run through every road block in this town
I laughed at all the signs that say “speed’ll kill ya”
It took you to slow me down

I’d forgotten how to fly
But I’ll remember before I die

It’s a crooked line I follow
It’s a rocky road I ride
It’s a bitter pill I swallow
Just to keep you by my side

A white man sings the blues
Like there just ain’t no tomorrow
‘cause misery is always colorblind
I’ve taken every remedy for ignorance and sorrow
Something to cure this wicked mind

And I’d forgotten how to fly
But I’ll remember before I die

It’s a crooked line I follow
And a rocky road I ride
It’s a bitter pill I swallow
Just to keep you by my side
Just to keep you satisfied

I’ve forgotten the reasons why
But I’ll remember before I die

It’s a crooked line I follow
It’s a rocky road I ride
It’s a bitter pill I swallow
Just to keep you by my side
Just to keep you satisfied
Just to keep you by my side

Satisfied
Satisfied

It’s a wicked world, baby

Riding down this road
Like I’ve ridden down a million
I’ve run through every road block in this town
I laughed at all the signs that say “speed’ll kill ya”
It took you to slow me down

This is by far, in my opinion, the best cd he has ever made. Every song is awesome. The vocals are great. The muscianship is superb. Its got a perfect mix of Billys past sound and also a more modern flavor to it. These bands today should listen and bow before Billy and Steve Stevens! One of my favorite cds of 2014

PriestTheHigh

agreed 100 percent

Bryan Reesman

Proof that you can make great rock music as you get older. I love classic Billy too, but I get annoyed by people being married to nostalgia and not giving newer songs a chance.

William Zimmerman

Agreed. My favorite of his.
