"Misery" as written by Tommy Duncan, Billie M. Moore and Bob Wills....
Shadows are fallin', all over town
Another night the blues got me down
Oh misery ... I sure could use some company

Since he's been gone I ain't been the same
I carry the weight like an ol' ball and chain
Guess it's all meant to be...for love to call me misery

Misery...misery
Tell why does my heart make a fool of me
Seems it's my destiny...
For love to cause me misery

Oh, I've been down this road before
Where the passion turns into pain
And each time I saw love walk out the door
I swore I'd never get caught up again

But ain't it true...it takes what it takes
And sometimes...we get too smart too late
One more heartache for me...another night in misery

Misery...misery
Tell why does my heart make a fool of me
Seems it's my destiny...
For love to cause me misery
Guess it's all meant to be for love to cause me misery

    General CommentThis is such a great song ! I love Pink so much! She writes such good music! This song is basically about how love never seems to be good for her because it all causes her such misery.

    General CommentThe guitar solo in this song is done by Richie Sambora. Pink is an incredibly lucky lady to be working with two huge talents like that. I'm not saying she's not talented, because she is, but for someone as pop as her to be able to get Steven Tyler and Richie Sambora, it's pretty damn lucky! Well done girl!

    General CommentPink has amazing talent...She can sing heavier songs and she can sing funny songs...and she can even sing some of the most amazing deep songs.....People say she's punk, Listen to this song, it's almost country :P....Doesn't make it a bad song....I'd hate to limit myself to listen to only one type of music....I love all music that is well done...I'm actually anti-punk just because it's soo easy...I've been in a punk band..I've heard gr.8 punk bands do songs better than famous ones...

    General CommentThis song is so touching, I first heard it in early 2003, when I was going through so much misery because of the most important guy in my life so far. We had just slept together after more than two years of pure friendship. And then he dissapeared for about 9 months and nothing was the same again. He still haunts me and I can't seem to get rid of him.
    So this song would make me cry back then because of that time...and it still touches me.
