Feeling continuously down on luck is exhausting, and trying to be positive becomes impossible: “How the hell am I gonna find happiness and peace of mind when I’m losing all the time?”.
And all of a sudden the will to erase sweet memories is imperative: “Ooh, it means nothing to me; ooh, you mean nothing to me; ooh, it means nothing to me; I paid the price: sacrificed, sacrificed”.
After all the grudge, the only thing that remains is a bitter taste. And… maybe a new start?
Released in 2003, “Bitter Pill” is the sixth track on Bare, Annie Lennox’s third studio album.
