The Verve - Bitter sweet symphony

Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony this life
Try to make ends meet, you're a slave to the 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 mould, I am here in my mould.
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no

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 singing to me now.

No change, I can change, I can change, I can change,
but I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould.
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no

Have you ever been down? I can change, I can change

Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony this life.
Trying to make ends meet, try to 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,
but I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould.
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no
(We've got ya sex and violence, melody and silence)
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 (x 2)
Been down
Ever been down (x 4)
Have you ever been down? (x 2)
