"Bitter Pill" as written by Jesse Quin and Timothy James Rice-oxley....
It seemed so easy at the start
When I left my heart
Sitting on the roof of the car
And drove off

And I rushed to leave the past behind
Forgot that heart was mine
I didn't even know at the time
I had one

I put the pedal to the floor
Heading for the western shore
Thinking only of high times
I had there

Oh I was cruel, cruel, cruel
I thought I'd fly too high to fall
But I never flew
Never left the ground at all

Greedy to get underway
I made that old mistake
Of sneering at familiar streets
And faces

Did you marry someone good
From our neighbourhood
Or are you on the other side of the world
Still searching

Oh I was cruel, cruel, cruel
I thought I'd fly too high to fall
But I never flew
Never left the ground at all, at all
So next time, time, time
I'll dream in days or on your mind
Look me up, 'cause I
Never left those days behind, behind

I've done some things I never should have done
Now I've come down, don't tell me that I'm out of time
Turn back your love upon a pie-eyed fool
Forget the things I did

When I was cruel, cruel, cruel
I thought I'd fly too high to fall
'Cause I never flew
Never left the ground at all, at all
So next time, time, time
I'll dream in days or on your mind
Look me up, 'cause I
Never left those days behind, behind
