Bitter Taste Chord Billy Idol

Capo 1 with [Am] [G] [D] [F] [C]


VERSE
The bitter taste, I hold my tongue
The manic hope the damage done
It’s bittersweet, black on gold
Talk is cheap, or so I’m told
I’m gonna ride this back 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

CHORUS
Hello, goodbye
There’s a million ways to die
Should’ve let me way back
Should’ve let me way back
By the roadside
Hello, goodbye
I was staring in the devil’s eyes
Should’ve let me way back
Should’ve let me way back
By the roadside
It’s a bitter taste

VERSE
Jagged stain on my skin
Broken leg, born again
You are the guy, upside down
Twisted free, my new crown
I’m gonna ride this back to the break of day
Rolling through the goggle of 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 clinch
Again and again

CHORUS
Hello, goodbye
There’s a million ways to die
Should’ve let me way back
Should’ve let me way back
By the roadside
Hello, goodbye
I was staring in the devil’s eyes
Should’ve let me way back
Should’ve let me way back
By the roadside
It’s a bitter taste

BRIDGE
It’s a jagged state
It’s a bitter taste
It’s a jagged state

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