Bittersweet Symphony?

I used to listen to this song and say to myself, "I wish there were no vocals in this song!" I love the music.

But then I actually listened to the lyrics, and I realized that many people probably (unfortunately) relate to the lyrics. "It's a bittersweet symphony - this life. Try to make ends meet, you're a slave to money, then you die..." "I'm a million different people from one day to the next..." (etc, etc).

The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony

I guess I sometimes have my moments... but I'm sure glad that this AIN'T life in Christ! Circumstantially, we've got our share of troubles in our day to day lives. I'll never deny that. I'm going through some stuff myself right now. But I also won't deny the God who takes care of Solomon and the lillies, and the birds of the air... and all of us!


  1. I was just listening to this song a few days ago, thinking the same thing. I love this song and I love Hillsong's brief revision of it.

  2. Hillsong? Wow, I didn't know they did this song.

  3. ........ain't that the truth!!!!
