Foxblood – Bittersweet Lyrics

Bittersweet by Foxblood
Released : 2017

We spent the night outside on the porch drinking gin in the house on the coast as the storm rolled in,
My regrets, where to begin?
It’s coming back to me, it’s coming round again.
Your dark hair and your pale skin, and all the goddamn times I never let you in, shit,
I swear to god I wish I told you everything,
it’s coming back to me, it’s coming round again.

We’re hopeless again (X2)

Bittersweet, you know what they say
We shine and we fade, it’s always the way
Bittersweet, you know what they say
I guess everything’s going to kill you one day.

The doctor said “Your head’s a mess, you’ve come apart bit by bit,
Take medicine, you’ll feel again”, but I sure as hell just feel like shit.

Bittersweet, we shine and we fade,
I guess everything’s going to kill you one day.

Bittersweet, you know what they say
We shine and we fade, it’s always the way
Bittersweet, you know what they say
I guess everything’s going to kill you one day.

The doctor said “Your head’s a mess, you’ve come apart bit by bit,
Take medicine, you’ll feel again”, but I sure as hell just feel like shit.
He says “It’s probably all that drinking”, and I say
“Doc, you’re overthinking, why would I interfere with a process that’s keeping me from sinking?”

(We shine and we fade) It’s coming back to me, it’s coming round again (x4)

There are pieces of us strewn across your bedroom floor
And there are pieces of me in a trail out your door
Your sister’s sad smile as I passed her on the front porch
I got stuck in a downward spiral in a time when you needed more.
I said “I’m sorry, you know’ You said “Get out, just go”
And I went to pieces with you watching from your window
I’ve got these loveless bones, now all I know is alone
So I lit my final cigarette and I walked three postcodes home.

We shine and we fade (x2)

The doctor said “Your head’s a mess, you’ve come apart bit by bit,
Take medicine, you’ll feel again”, but I sure as hell just feel like shit.
He says “It’s probably all that drinking”, and I say
“Doc, you’re overthinking, why would I interfere with a process that’s keeping me from sinking?”

Bittersweet, we shine and we fade
I guess everything’s going to kill you one day.

● “Die Young ”

[ Quotable ]
Before I left I wrote you a letter,
Said ‘it’s going to get worse before it gets any better’.
So take a good hard look into these tired eyes,
Because they’re going to be tired for quite some time

● “Ghost Town Medicine”

[ Quotable ]
This ghost town medicine.
You can’t make amends
You’ve got no one left
Just the awful things I did while you slept.
And I’m sorry.
