Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now Lyrics

by The Smiths

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 ?
