Bitter Sweet Symphony
The Verve Lyrics


'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, that's life
Tryna 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
(Have you ever been down?)

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 singin' 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
(Have you ever been down?)
I can't change, oh, no
I can't change, oh

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, that's life
Tryna make ends meet, tryna 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 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 my mold, no, no, no, no
It's just sex and violence, melody and silence
It's just sex and violence, melody and silence
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 ever been down?
Have you ever been down?

Soli Deogloria

What is the chief end of man ?

Man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.


There is a reason why somthing rather than nothing and it is predicated on the uncaused non contingent first cause of all contingency...


God


Seek Christ Jesus the Redeemer

"Tryin to make ends meet, you're a slave to money, then you die" Not going to lie... that one cut deep

Francisco Soares

Especially since greedy people tried to steal the rights to this masterpiece

Victoria De Jesus

Who r filling yourself the slave-always will be.👎😇

[[[ *Dragonier* ]]]

@Sarifa Xionic Hence why education/qualifications early on in life is so important. They’re what boost you into the higher-paying jobs, unless you get lucky by starting up your own business or something. Capitalism has many perks, like being able to own your own wealth, and freedom to trade it on the stock markets…

[[[ *Dragonier* ]]]

Only if you believe it. There’s a lot more to life than just work…

Bob Johnson

@Nicki Millennium Wait until you're 65 like I am and know you will have to work until two weeks after you're dead just to pay your bills ;-)
