Bittersweet Symphony is a song sung by Josie McCoy and Veronica Lodge and was originally performed by the English alternative rock band, The Verve.

Veronica apologizes to Josie for taking control of the Pussycats and asks if Josie will sing this song with her at her confirmation ceremony. Josie agrees and they duet the song as Veronica walks down the Church aisle and receives the sacrament.[1]

Lyrics

Josie:
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Trying to make ends meet
You're a slave to the money then you die

Veronica:
I'll take you down the only road that I've ever been down

Josie:
You know the one that takes you to the places
Where all the veins meet, yeah

Veronica:
No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold

Josie:
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Veronica:
Well I never prayed
But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah

Josie:
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah

Veronica:
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now

Josie:
But the airwaves are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

Josie and Veronica:
No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Veronica:
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life

Josie:
Trying to make ends meet
Trying to find some money then you die

Josie and Veronica:
No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, (Veronica: No)
