“BITTERSWEET”

In D

Luisa      Verse 1         Where’s your Mama to hold you tight?

Rock you gently till you feel all right?

And who will keep you safe all through the night?

 

Segue1                        And people walk on by now…

Like they’re preoccupied now.

So they hide their fear now

And maybe shed a tear now

 

Chorus                        Life is bittersweet, bittersweet for us all.

 

Street passers:             Bittersweet, bittersweet for us all.

 

Luisa:                          Helps him up, they take a small walk.

Verse 2            Still a young boy, yet a man.

Tryin’ to sort it out and understand.

And no one bothers just to lend a hand.

 

Segue 2            No, they just walk on by now…

Well something’s gone awry now.

Just can’t get involved now.

And thus their problems solved now.

 

Chorus                        Life is bittersweet, bittersweet for us all.

 

Street passers:             Bittersweet, bittersweet for us all.

Alt Verse          Now don’t you worry that the sun won’t shine.

There’s a piece of it that’s yours and mine.

If God is watching, your pain will end.

What ever happens, boy, you’ve got a friend!

 

            Verse 3            Broken hearted, and left alone.

Like my husband left me on my own.

Well I won’t leave you without a home!

Well they should shed a tear now.
