bitter fruit/never be the same

Bitter fruit

So you tell us there’s no money left in the pot

And your gonna leave us all to rot

Got to work till we die

Lost it all in a blink of an eye

If my daddie was still alive

You’d have him working 9 till 5

He’s seen more than you can chew

And his ghost tells me this is nothing new

Chorus

You’ve ran away with our loot

Left behind a bitter fruit

Expect us to believe in your politics of lies

Whilst you steal our future and leave us out to dry

We all know you done wrong

And the bitter fruit tastes so strong

Look around we are all depressed

Gotta walk around in a bullet proof vest

Just to get through a working day

Can’t even afford our own decay

So sick and tiered of all your lies

The truth is hidden in your disguise

That fund was never yours to spend

And your gonna pay for it in the end

Chorus

You’ve ran away with our loot

Left behind a bitter fruit

Expect us to believe in your politics of lies

Whilst you steal our future and leave us out to dry

We all know you done wrong

And the bitter fruit tastes so strong

Never be the same

Guess we started way too fast

And lost ourselves

To the bitter past

With the lessons learned

Should have taken our time

Now we’ve gone and burned

There’s a spark between us, full of desire

It’s in the way you look at me

But somehow it can’t go any higher

Cos we both live in sorrow

Like shadows in the wind

It’s gonna be gone tomorrow

Chorus

Love gets lost in the search for blame

Is it too soon to walk away

Wondering what could have became

Straight out of the fire and into the pain

I wonder if it can be the same

Something tells me it can never be the same

You ask for a little time

And you’ll come back to me

But you can’t re-cork loves wine

And I can’t drink from a shattered cup

wish me well as you put me through hell

As hard as it is I’m slowly giving up

Truth is we could have made it

It was ours for the taking

Everything seemed to fit

But I don’t believe in starting over

Lets part with hearts intact

Always aim high never lower

Chorus

Love gets lost in the search for blame

Is it too soon to walk away

Wondering what could have became

Straight out of the fire and into the pain

I wonder if it can be the same

Something tells me it can never be the same
