HEAVEN KNOWS I'M MISERABLE NOW Lyrics

Artist: The Smiths
Album: BEST...2

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


"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


"You've been in the house too long" she said
And I (naturally) fled


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

what beautiful lyrics
by Davy on 7/27/2008 9:22am
I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour but heaven knows i'm miserable now!
I love this phrase. It's the post-happiness feeling one gets after a nice time, specially if there was a drunken hour. Slowly melancholia settles and the emptiness describes the miserable time. Loneliness makes it worse. Even getting a job doesnt make things better! Damn, how i love this!
by mariel on 8/27/2008 6:22am
very intelligent lyrics..
by pekerm4nn on 8/29/2008 8:46am
there was a time when lyrics were intelligent...
anyway, Why do I smile
At people who I'd much rather kick in the eye ?

by tonyrojas on 1/14/2009 11:39pm
yeah this makes me cry alot when i sing the lyrics, i know this song alot can relate, but this and how soon is now? from the smiths, are so me... its like... i dunno, love ignores me, sure id had gfs, but they each just pass me by.. and ignore me.. i met a chick, by friday of the same week i fell in love with her, sat, we fucked, and by tuesday she forgets me. All im worth is making her cum. I mean im cute.. but damn.. i deserve to fall in love with someone worthwhile dammit.

tonyrojas; why don't you pull your self indulgent head out of your arse then maybe you might get somewhere near happyness.
by kari sanchez (mOzZeR cHiKa) on 2/26/2009 12:30pm

Am I the only punk who believes the punk scene needs to learn a thing or two from Morrissey?
by Jan on 3/13/2009 5:05pm
Still sounding brilliant..........
by Danyboy on 3/19/2009 5:14pm
this is easily 1 of my favorite songs by the smiths!!!i could fully relate to this song,and there is a light that never goes out.just beutiful lyrics,well really meaningful and true at least!!!
by off on 3/25/2009 3:43pm
No, you're not!
by Mr Realistic on 3/27/2009 9:08am
These lyrics are just depressing and stupid. Only an arsehole would think they were in any way "intelligent."

Fuck The Smiths. Listen to something lively and smile once in a while.
by rudy on 4/2/2009 7:14pm
Yeah, I'm a punk too and I agree, especially since morrissey had a thing or two to do with the punk scene before the smiths (the nosebleeds).
by KarenMoz on 4/14/2009 10:19pm
Are you retarted or just acting retarted mr realistic..

You're taste in music must be horrible then..

This is indeed a lovely song.. And I am sure that even the most lively person can relate to it because no one is perfect.

Morrissey is my life! He is completely amazing in every way
:)
by chongcky on 4/28/2009 8:09pm
dumbest comment ive ever read in my entire life. leave the smiths alone and just listen to ur happy macarena or barbie girl songs aight.
by sheez on 5/14/2009 3:45pm
it's all about punk. being frustrated.
by mm on 5/20/2009 1:52am
i really like this song... is my life.
by sallow on 5/30/2009 8:51am
die
by Eddie on 6/11/2009 11:56am
It makes sense. The lyrics are intelligent because it takes time to interpret them.
What I never understand with people is if you don't like the song or indeed the band why the hell do you waste your time on here. I use the internet for things I enjoy not to come across people proclaiming petty hate.
by mogwog on 6/15/2009 4:09am
i would fart in everyone's mouth for a dollar
by Smiths Fan on 7/19/2009 3:30am
This song is the shit everyong who thinks otherwise don't know nothing about good music... Anyways I love this song as much as I know it's over, there is a light that never goes out, this charming man, and how soon is now..... The smiths are the shit...
by mae on 8/1/2009 12:26pm
morrisseys lyrics are beautiful
by zb on 9/11/2009 5:35am
Anyone who's ever worked for the public can relate to this song:

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

Wheee.
by Esteban Lifischtz on 9/19/2009 1:38pm
This is one of my favorite lyrics.

The song is about absence of love and the impossibility of feeling
fulfilled with something else in
its place.

Morrissey is simply brilliant to
illustrate the miseries of humanity and he always add a bit of irony to all his lyrics making them sound funny but thoughtful.

I love it too. 3 lovers that don't give back in 2 months....too much for me.
by patrick on 6/3/2010 11:29pm
this song is basically my life
by BIM on 6/11/2010 6:33am
Heard the song for the first time in years today. It struck a chord with me at the moment
I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour, but heaven knows I'm miserable now
"You've been out of work too long" they said and I (naturally) fled
Last year I was looking for a job, and then I found a job at TNG
And heaven knows I'm miserable now

Why do I give valuable time to people who don't care if they live or die ?
Why do I smile at people who would much rather spit in my eye ?


In my life why do I give valuable time to people who don't care if I live or die?
Tonight I’ll be happy in the haze of a drunken hour, but heaven knows I'm miserable now.
by DARK ANGEL on 7/16/2010 9:34pm
¿PORQUE LE DOY TIEMPO VALIOSO A LA GENTE QUE NO ME IMPORTA SI VIVE O MUERE? ES LA MEJOR PARTE.......
by Popotão on 8/15/2010 11:29pm
" Os céus sabem que me sinto miserável agora!

Na minha vida
Por que desperdiço tempo valioso
Com gente que não se importa
Se eu vivo ou morro?? "
by Moment on 9/8/2010 5:02am
Every once in a while, this song hits a nerve big time. Then you know you have to move on, do something, fight. Absolutely brilliant.
by Mozzy on 10/2/2010 12:01pm
Perdon por escribir en español, pero prefiero asi, todos hemos pasado momentos de depresion o faltos de amor aunque tengamos algunas cosas que no apreciemos y que las tenemos cerca pero nos gana la tristeza.
by MaD NiG3l on 12/7/2010 11:14pm
this is a perfect song for any one who works in bloody retail...
by Bernie on 1/23/2011 3:30pm
Morissey is genius, great composer and poet. Used to work for people who did care if I'd live or die. I work now for myself and I am working now and haven knows I'm miserable...

The Smiths/Morrissey Rock My Minivan! If you think their depressing listen to a funnier song! Duh. Like "there is a light that never goes out" ! There are a variety of songs with beautiful music and lyrics! And after 20 or so years they still rock! Thanks for the soundtrack to life!
