Bittersweet Symphony
Andrew Oldham Orchestra 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't change
I can't change, I can't 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't change
I can't change, I can't 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't change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't 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?

Who's here because Richard got the rights back today?

Asaf Cohen

@Paul Monaghan you shouldn't be blaming the rolling stones. Alana Kline the dickhead manager who fucked with so many people is the one to blain and he had the full royalties to all of the rolling stones stuff

@JP VanDërBilt Exactly my thoughts

Steve T

Markus W 😭😭😭😭

Lol, me. I didn't know about the rights thing, but honestly now that I hear this song... Keith&Mick have been very generous to give those back. Richard's song is just a segment of this one repeated over and over.

The verve just regained their rights to Bittersweet symphony.

@Rev Gary Rockin Preacher “Plagiarism is the representation of another author's language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions as one's own original work”

Verve never once attempted to pass off the loop they sampled as their own work. What you’re saying is factually incorrect and shows a lack of comprehension of the meaning of the term “plagiarism”. Using a sample with permission isn’t plagiarism.

Rev Gary Rockin Preacher

@Zanzibar Breeze plagiarism is copying with or without permission. If you plagiarised another student's work for University and got caught you'd face disciplinary action. Satan doesn't create he replicates.

Zanzibar Breeze

@Rev Gary Rockin Preacher No, but plagiarism is theft, it is copying somebody else's work without authorisation and passing it off as your own. For it to be plagiarism Verve would have had to have used the sample without permission. That wasn't the case, they got the relevant permission. It's not plagiarism by any definition of the word
