lyrics

(She’s so refined, I want to kill myself)

I’m a young healthy woman
With a long road ahead
But I don’t end my days with a sweet little dream
Instead I end it with a bottle of red

Oh Misery, why you gotta go and torture me?
Oh Misery, why you gotta stay and play?
Oh Misery, you’re the dirty little thief who comes to steal all my dreams
Oh Misery, please let me be.

Done a lot of things that I’m proud of
And I end most of my days with a smile
But all the things I’ve done wrong echo with every thought
And keep on badgering me all of the while

Oh Misery, you’re the worst kind of company
Oh Misery, you come without invitation and drink all of my wine
Oh Misery, you’re the wind that comes to blow away all of the seeds
Oh Misery, please let me be.

Lately I’ve been making lots of changes
So I can be the person I want to be
But I can’t seem to pretend, I’ll always be on the mend
Nothing fits quite properly

Oh Misery, now you’ve had your fun
For a quarter of a century you’ve kept me undone.
Oh Misery, aren’t you getting kinda tired of me stumbling?
Oh Misery, go find a new friend
Oh Misery, I really wish this would end
Oh Misery, please let me be.
