Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now

Album: Hatful of Hollow (1984)
Charted: 10
  • I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
    But heaven knows I'm miserable now

    I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
    And heaven knows I'm miserable now

    In my life
    Why do I give valuable time
    To people who don't care if I live or die?

    Two lovers entwined pass me by
    And heaven knows I'm miserable now

    I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
    And heaven knows I'm miserable now

    In my life
    Oh, why do I give valuable time
    To people who don't care if I live or die?

    What she asked of me at the end of the day
    Caligula would have blushed

    "Oh, you've been in the house too long" she said
    And I naturally fled

    In my life
    Why do I smile
    At people who I'd much rather kick in the eye?

    I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
    But heaven knows I'm miserable now

    "Oh, you've been in the house too long" she said
    And I naturally fled

    In my life
    Oh, why do I give valuable time
    To people who don't care if I live or die?Writer/s: STEVEN MORRISSEY, JOHNNY MARR

  • Sioraf from Macroon, IrelandI can relate to this song so much. I'd rather have a job though, it would be something new at least.
