Oasis – Bittersweet Symphony lyrics

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Trying 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 mind
I am here in my mind

But I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mind

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 mind
I am here in my mind

And I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mind
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change, I can't change it

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Trying to make ends meet
Trying 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 veins 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 mind
I am here in my mind

And I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mind
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change my mind
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
That why

    Funny, when I just was thinking how everyone wants me to be a certain person, but hell I am always changing here in my mind. I can't change, this is me. I am a million different people everyday, one day I may like eating deer, the next how could I let that poor animal die and eat it. My mind fluctuates and it seems to bother mostly everybody. Tryn to "fit in" to make others happy, and money, wow, in the moment just burn it, cause I am sick of the greed. Is that all we are anymore. Yeah, I think so. Do I pay bills or bar hop. Is there a drug to heal what makes me feel so outcasted? Or does this drug make me feel outcasted. I can't change, no matter what, I can't change the fact I am always changing, my mind, my body its the only road I've ever known. Till the day I die. Its a bittersweet symphony. This life.
