On Day Like This/Bittersweet Symphony

Drinking in the morning sun, blinking in the morning sun
Shaking off the heavy one, yeah heavy like a loaded gun
What made me behave that way? Using words I never say
I can only think it must be love
Oh anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

Someone tell me how I feel, it’s silly wrong but vivid right
Oh, kiss me like a final meal, yeah kiss me like we die tonight
Cause holy cow I love you eyes and only now I see the light
Yeah lying with you half awake
Oh anyway it’s looking like a beautiful day

So throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year, it’d see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year, it’d see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year, it’d see me right, for life

Cos’ it’s a bittersweet symphony this life…
Trying 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 pain lives

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, no, no
