Cruel Intentions - Bittersweet Symphony Lyrics

Cruel Intentions: the '90s Musical - Bittersweet Symphony Lyrics


KATHRYN:
However dark the cloud there's always a silver lining.
lt might be hard to see, 
But what we should learn
From this is to be true to ourselves,
And to resist the temptations of peer pressure.
As student body president,
l’ve tried to set an example in myself.
Unfortunately, the one person l could not reach out
To in time was my stepbrother, Sebastian

MALE STUDENT:
She's lying

(As Kathryn gives the rest of her speech,
various students begin talking over her,
expressing the fact that she is a liar,
manipulator, and not to be trusted)

KATHRYN:
I know he's looking down on us today and
l know he’s looking down on us today
And he'd want me to say
He'd want me to say,
''Kathryn--'' He'd want me to say,
’’Kathryn, l'm sorry.’' What is going on?
Don't you people have any respect?

CECILE & RONALD:
'Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, that's life
Tryna make ends meet
You're a slave to money then you die

BLAINE AND GREG:
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 veins meet yeah

CECILE, RONALD, BLAINE, GREG:
No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

KATHRYN:
Well I've never prayed
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that
Recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine
Let it cleanse my mind
I feel free now
But the airwaves are clean
And there's nobody singing to me now

KATHRYN, CECILE, RONALD, BLAINE, GREG:
No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
Have you ever been down?
I can't change it you know
I can't change it

ANNETTE:
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Tryna make ends meet
Tryna find some money then you die

ANNETTE AND SEBASTIAN:
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 veins meet yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

KATHRYN, CECILE, RONALD, BLAINE, GREG:
You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change

COMPANY:
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
