Lyrics for Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now - 2011 Remaster by The Smiths:

Verse 1
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

Refrain 1
In my life, why do I give valuable time
To people who don't care if I live or die?

Verse 2
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

Refrain 1
In my life, oh, why do I give valuable time
To people who don't care if I live or die?

Verse 3
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

Refrain 2
In my life, why do I smile
At people who I'd much rather kick in the eye?

Verse 4
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

Refrain 1
In my life, oh, why do I give valuable time
To people who don't care if I live or die?
