Bitter Words (Roger Gall, 1999) Cho: Bitter words, sung sweetly, The whole truth, but not completely Bitter words.... Sung sweetly by you My world, broken in a minute My life and all that's in it My world.... Is broken in two Bitter words, sung sweetly by you. I looked up to see the sun. Instead, I saw the moon. Somehow, the words don't fit the tune. When I first heard it, no wonder I got it wrong: I knew the singer but not the song. Well, you sang so sweet, that music to my ear, It's just those words I don't want to hear. Your timing was OK and the place was fine, But there's no right place and no right time. It don't matter how you disguise it; when you aim that low, It still feels like a hammer blow. If you don't see it coming, you can't break your fall; You just take the full force of it all. I thought I was "boxing clever," then I hit the floor. Like a fool, I stood up for more. I thought we were only sparring, but this was the "big show." Why was I the last one to know? JD July01
