Song Description

the driving Bittersweet acknowledges the dark side and the dirty laundry of one's past where you taste both the good and bad in someone you love...

Story Behind the Song

is a lamentation of lost love but also an airing and acknowledging dirty laundry of the past-sort of the darker side of love-and embracing that this is also a part of who you are...

It's 2 am
I'm staring at the screen
of flashing frames
To dull the noisy chatter
filling up my head

I switch between the scenes
of Sherlock Holmes and Mystery
but all I hear-stuck on repeat is
good girls don't have dirty laundry

Who is perfect
who wants to be
just a pretty girl
a wordless story
Yeah, who is perfect
who wants to be
just a pretty girl
yeah yeah

Bittersweet-I'm bittersweet
Do you still want me
Falling on my knees to please you
Will you catch me
And I know I'm not cherry filling
I know you're tired of hearing
Bittersweet-I'm bittersweet

It's 3 am
and sleep is nowhere near
your scent's still here
I see a text from you at
quarter after two

And maybe I'd misstepped
By chasing dreams instead of being
the girl you thought you knew-
the girl who always hid her darkened laundry

Who is perfect
who wants to be
just another pretty girl
a carbon copy
Yeah, who is perfect
who wants to be
just a goodie girl-
Yeah, yeah

Bittersweet-I'm Bittersweet
Do you miss, miss me
I'd fall on my knees to please you
If you asked me
And I know I'm not sticky candy
I know, you may never trust me
Bittersweet-I'm bittersweet
Yeah oh yeah

If I were a different girl
I might let go
If I were a different girl
I might be so-so good but I'm

Bittersweet-I'm bittersweet
Do you still love me
Bittersweet-I'm bittersweet
Will you forgive me
Bittersweet-I'm bittersweet
Are we done fighting
Bittersweet, I'm bittersweet
How long can we keep crying

Open your eyes
just take a bite
I am bittersweet

but those sticky sweets
those sticky sweets
may you leave you wanting
