Three Days Grace – Bitter Taste

“Your name, your face is all you have left now”

Bitter Taste is the first song of Three Days Grace’s third album Life Starts Now, which was released in 2009. The song is about someone who ends a relationship, but the other escapes the bitter taste of it because he erased the person out of his mind. The album has been a great success with many well-known songs on it, and Bitter Taste is ‘only’ the first song on it.

Lyrics

Just let me say one thing

I’ve had enough

You’re selfish and sorry

You’ll never learn how to love

As your world disassembles

Better keep your head up

 

Your name, your face is all you have left now

Betrayed, disgraced

You’ve been erased

 

So long

So long

I have erased you

So long

So long

I’ve wanted to waste you

So long

So long

I have erased you

I have escaped

The bitter taste of you

 

Just let me clear my head

I think I’ve had too much

You’re so disappointing

But you make good use of it

As your world disassembles

Better keep your head up

 

Your name, your face is all you have left now

Betrayed, disgraced

You’ve been erased

 

So long

So long

I have erased you

So long

So long

I’ve wanted to waste you

So long

So long

I have erased you

I have escaped

The bitter taste of you

 

Your name, your face is all you have left now

Disgraced, betrayed

You’ve been erased

 

So long

So long

I have erased you

So long

So long

I’ve wanted to waste you

So long

So long

I have erased you

I have escaped

The bitter taste

I have escaped

The bitter taste of you

 

 

Opinion Daniël

It’s a good song, although the lyrics are a bit boring in my opinion. They could’ve written a it a bit different, because now they repeat “So long” many times. Without that it would’ve been an even better song.

Opinion Justin

I think this is a very good song by Three Days Grace. I normally like the first song on the album, and this is another one which is very good. The music sounds very well and there’s a nice rhythm in the song. The lyrics are indeed the weak point here. They could’ve made it a bit more different. Nevertheless it’s just a very good song.

Opinion Timothy

A song without many different parts in it. The lyrics are repeated every time and that is unfortunate, because now the song becomes very dull. With a bit more variation it would’ve been much better.

Grade: 7,5

Overall: 7,8

Bitter Taste comes in 16th out of 24 in the ranking at the moment.
