BITTERNESS RISING - Paul Weller

Unfit to live in - just about fit to burst
Like the banks of a swollen river
As bitterness does its worst

Working on your feelings - eating you all up
But you have to shed that shit to move on
And let love carry you on up -

# (It's just) bitterness rising - taking you off
Bitterness rising - you gotta shake those feelings off

Unfair to give in - and never change its course
If you have the choice before you
You must take it with a force

Or the past will take you - keep you from the truth
As bitterness rises - from the ashes of your youth

#

Moments in time - finding the space - to be what'cha wanna be
The things you never got - life you never had - the dreams
you once dreamed
Waiting your time - finding the space - to be what'cha wanna be -
just be!

Or the past will take you - keep you from the truth
As bitterness rises - from the ashes of your youth
