This Bitter Earth.

Max Richter – This Bitter Earth / On The Nature Of Daylight

Max Richter gives a slow & wistful lilting lean to the original 1960s song by Dinah Washington.

Recommended listening time: late and alone.
Ambience: candlelight, thick red wine and cedar incense.
Mood: hopeful.

This bitter earth
Well, what a fruit it bears
What good is love
Mmm, that no one shares

And if my life is like the dust
Ooh, that hides the glow of a rose
What good am I
Heaven only knows

Lord, this bitter earth
Yes, can be so cold
Today you're young
Too soon, you're old

But while a voice within me cries
I'm sure someone may answer my call
And this bitter earth
Ooh, may not, oh, 
be so bitter after all
