Bittersweet Symphony
The Andrew Oldham Orchestra/The 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'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?

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.

@JP VanDërBilt there are only so many cords and melodies available . I listened to the stones and it's less obvious than the stairway to heaven case that was closer to the song in question. I think you'll find fat boy slims biggest hit was an exact copy of the song he sampled. There are loads of cases where songs have been dragged up from one hit wonders and obsure sources and become major hits after being tweated and who fucking cares!

Rev Gary Rockin Preacher just because they used a riff that’s similar to the progression of this song, they don’t deserve any credit?

Just cause one aspect of the song is similar doesn’t mean it’s the same song. It’s not even the same riff, just a similar one.

@tangentz0007 no he didnt
