"Bittersweet" as written by Katie Elizabeth Marie Taylor, Rachel Louise Alderson, Laura Brophy, Natalie Elizabeth Hamson, Charlotte Lucy Hamson and Chris Potts....
Release the gate of beautiful, I am staying down to hide in rooms away
These tears they build me up a house,
Then they pour on down and wash the house away
And I am left to fight the waves (he's around me constantly)

I kissed these lonely tears I shed goodbye
Because I'm bittersweet, without you father there's no reason

Hold up my heart it makes me feel,
Like these rooms will close in locking all the doors
With these hands and broken stones,
I have built a legacy and now it's time to move on

He's around me constantly
So get off of my soul

    General Commenthes cryed himself a large room closing up eveything and everyone away. but he kissed all of the tears good by because God helped him through those hard times and God tore down the house of tears. and made it a bittersweet ending.
