Misunderstood

Album: Being There (1996)

  • When you're back in your old neighborhood
    The cigarettes taste so good
    But you're so misunderstood
    You're so misunderstood

    There's something there that you can't find
    You look honest when you're telling a lie
    You hurt her but you don't know why
    You love her but you don't know why

    Short on long term goals
    There's a party there that we ought to go to
    If you still love rock and roll
    If you still love rock and roll

    It's only a quarter to three
    Reflecting off of your CD
    You're looking at a picture of me
    You're staring at a picture of me

    Take the guitar player for a ride
    'Cause he ain't never been satisfied
    He thinks he owes some kind of debt
    Be years before he gets over it

    There's a fortune inside your head
    When all you touch turns to lead
    You think you might just crawl back in bed
    With the fortune inside your head

    I know you're just a mama's boy
    Positively unemployed
    So misunderstood
    You're so misunderstood

    I know you've got a God-shaped hole
    Bleeding out your heart full of soul
    You're so misunderstood
    You're so misunderstood
    You're so misunderstood
    You're so misunderstood

    I'd like to thank you all for nothing
    I'd like to thank you all for nothing at all
    I'd like to thank you all for nothing
    Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing
    Nothing at all
    Nothing, nothing, nothing
    Nothing at all Writer/s: Jeffrey Tweedy
