Song of the Day: Bitter Taste by Billy Idol

Bitter Taste

The bitter taste
On my tongue
The many holes
The damage done
It’s bittersweet
Black on gold
And talk is cheap
Or so I’m told

I’m gonna ride this bike to the edge of town
Roll to the bridge with my eyes shut and spit at the stars
And scream in the dark
There’s nothing I can do to change it now
But if I cut myself open, baby
You can read all my scars
Read all my scars

Hello, goodbye
There’s a million ways to die
Should’ve left me way back
Should’ve left me way back by the roadsidе
Hello, goodbye
I was staring in the dеvil’s eyes (Staring in the devil’s eyes)
Should’ve left me way back
Should’ve left me way back by the roadside
It’s a bitter taste

Jagged stain
On my skin
Broken leg
Born again
Wide glide
Upside down
Twisted frame
My new crown

I’m gonna ride this bike till the break of day
Rollin’ through the garden like the fountain won’t take it away
I’m not gonna change
I’m gonna live so hard, these broken wings
Will lift me to the sun so I can burn up in the flames
Again and again

Hello, goodbye
There’s a million ways to die
Should’ve left me way back
Should’ve left me way back by the roadside
Hello, goodbye
I was staring in the devil’s eyes (Staring in the devil’s eyes)
Should’ve left me way back
Should’ve left me way back by the roadside

It’s a bitter taste (Whoa oh, whoa oh)
It’s a jagged stain (Whoa oh, whoa oh)
It’s a bitter taste, whoa oh, whoa oh
It’s a jagged stain, whoa oh, whoa oh

Hello, goodbye
There’s a million ways to die
Should’ve left me way back
Should’ve left me way back by the roadside
It’s a bitter taste
