Well, you're my friend And can you see Many times we've been out drinking Many times we've shared our thoughts But did you ever, ever notice The kind of thoughts I got? Well, you know I have a love A love for everyone I know And you know I have a drive To live, I won't let go But can you see this opposition Comes rising up sometimes? That it's dreadful imposition Comes blacking in my mind
And then I see a darkness And then I see a darkness And then I see a darkness And then I see a darkness Did you know how much I love you? Is a hope that somehow you Can save me from this darkness
Well, I hope that someday, buddy We have peace in our lives Together or apart Alone or with our wives And we can stop our whoring And pull the smiles inside And light it up forever And never go to sleep My best unbeaten brother This isn't all I see
Oh no, I see a darkness Oh no, I see a darkness Oh no, I see a darkness Oh no, I see a darkness Did you know how much I love you? Is a hope that somehow you Can save me from this darkness

"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
