The Jam – The Bitterest Pill lyrics

In your white lace and your wedding bells
You look the picture of contented new wealth
But from the on-looking fool who believed your lies
I wish this grave would open up and swallow me alive
For the bitterest pill is hard to swallow
The love I gave hangs in sad coloured, mocking shadows

When the wheel of fortune broke, you fell to me
Out of grey skies to change my misery
The vacant spot, your beating heart took its place
But now I watch smoke leave my lips and fill an empty room

For the bitterest pill is hard to swallow
The love I gave hangs in sad coloured, mocking shadows

The bitterest pill is mine to take
If I took it for a hundred years, I couldn't feel any more hate

The bitterest pill is mine to take
If I took it for a hundred years, I couldn't feel any more hate

Now autumn's breeze blows summer's leaves through my life
Twisted and broken dawn, no days with sunlight
The dying spark, you left your mark on me
The promise of your kiss, but with someone else

For the bitterest pill is mine to swallow
The love I gave hangs in sad coloured, mocking shadows

The bitterest pill is mine to take
If I took it for a hundred years, I couldn't feel anymore ill!

    I think the song is a metaphor for the Paul Weller breaking up The Jam for his next project The Style Council. Both the band and the bands original sound being the ex lover Paul Weller has left behind. It could even be how ex members of the band fell about Weller, like they're the jilted ex lovers.
