Miss Misery
I'll fake it through the day with some help from Johnny Walker Red
Send the poisoned rain down the drain to put bad thoughts in my head
With two tickets torn in half and a lot of nothin' to do

Do you miss me, Miss Misery, like you say you do?

A man in the park read the lines in my hand
Told me I'm strong, hardly ever wrong. I said, "Man, you mean..."

You had plans for both of us that involved a trip out of town
To a place I've seen in a magazine that you left lyin' around
I don't have you with me but I keep a good attitude

Do you miss me, Miss Misery, like you say you do?

I know you'd rather see me gone than to see me the way that I am
When I am in the life anyway

Next door TV's flashing blue frames on the wall
It's a comedy of errors, you see. It's about taking a fall
To vanish into oblivion, it's easy to do
And I try to be, but you know me, I come back when you want me to

Do you miss me, Miss Misery, like you say you do?

Written by:

Elliott Smith


"Miss Misery" was nominated for Best Original Song in the 1998 Academy Awards.
