Bitter is such a beautiful solo album by Meshell Ndegeocello from ’99; inspired by a torturous romantic relationship. The song “Bitter” surges with emotions with minimal lyrics that are shaded with regret and remorse.
The whole album is amazingly the most personal… However, Meshell’s subtle songcraft is making it an emotionally meditative journey.
This CD album was one of my favorite pieces of the collection I left at my hometown. Definitely a pearl.
You push me away bitterly
My apologies fall on your deaf ears
You curse my name bitterly
And now your eyes they look at me bitterly
I stand ashamed amidst my foolish pride
‘Cause for us, there’ll be no more
For us, there’ll be no more
And now my eyes look at you bitterly
