Bittersweet Symphony

‘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 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

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 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, no, no

‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life–
Try to make ends meet,
Try to find some money,
Then you die.
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

(apologies to The Verve)
