Lyrics

BITTER/BETTER (Janis Kelly © 2017)
Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah
Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah
Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah
Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah

Had a revelation during meditation, just the other day
After reading something Marianne had to say
Seems I can have miracles or grievances, but I will have to choose
For my soul to win, my ego has to lose

So do I wanna be bitter or better? A releaser or regretter?
Make peace or wage a war against myself?
Would I rather have hurting or healing? Creating or concealing?
Forgive, forget and free myself at last?
Bitter or Better? (Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah)
Bitter or Better? (Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah)

Another inspiration, more contemplation on the spoken word
An old Cherokee story most of us have heard
Grandfather says, “Two wolves live inside us, each tryin’ to overthrow
One is darkness, one is light, the one we feed will grow

So do I wanna be bitter or better? A releaser or regretter?
Make peace or wage a war against myself?
Would I rather have hurting or healing? Creating or concealing?
Forgive, forget and free myself at last?
Bitter or Better? (Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah)
Bitter or Better? (Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah)

Bitter: I am a victim of circumstance, I never win never get the chance
Everyone’s happy but me, darkness is all I see
Better: I am the author of my own tale, I build the ship that my life will sail
I shape my own destiny, I am one with Divinity
Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah
Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah

Do I wanna be bitter or better? A releaser or regretter?
Make peace or wage a war against myself?
Would I rather have hurting or healing? Creating or concealing?
Forgive, forget and free myself at last?

Do I wanna be bitter or better? A releaser or regretter?
Make peace or wage a war against myself?
Would I rather have hurting or healing? Creating or concealing?
Forgive, forget and free myself at last?
Bitter or Better? (Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah)
Bitter or Better? (Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah)
Bitter or Better? (Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah)
Bitter or Better? (Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, dah-dah)
Tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah, tah-dah-dah!
