"Misery" as written by Don Gilmore, Benji Madden and Joel Madden....
Take a look around don't you see it?
See that you are the only real face in the room
No one here has a clue what you're feeling
Don't feel bad keep your sadness alive

Look at all these happy people
Living their lives
Look at all these plastic people
There's nothing inside
Look at all these shallow people
Telling their lies
Look at all these empty people, people

Don't you know, that misery loves company
Yeah I heard, that misery was looking for me
Happiness, is a face that don't look good on me
Yeah I hope, that misery comes looking for me
Woah, misery's my company
Woah, misery is looking for me
Looking for me

The hands are up now
Everybody's singing, everybody's moving
They're putting their feelings
They're synchronizing, and criticizing
Don't feel bad keep your sadness alive

Look a all these happy people
Living their lives
Look at all these plastic people
They're dying inside
Look at all these shallow people
Telling their lies
Look at all these empty people, people

Don't you know, that misery loves company
Yeah I heard, that misery was looking for me
Happiness, is a face that doesn't look good on me
Yeah I hope, that misery comes looking for me
Woah, misery's my company
Woah, misery is looking for me

Don't you know this misery loves me
Don't you know this misery loves me
Don't you know this misery loves me
Don't you know this misery loves me

So you're tired of running
You're tired of hurting
You're tired of living in their light
You're tired of listening
You're tired of hurting
Keep your sadness alive, alive, alive

Don't you know, that misery loves company
Yeah I heard, that misery was looking for me
Happiness, is a face that don't look good on me
Yeah I that, misery comes looking for me
Don't you know, that misery loves company
Yeah I heard, misery was looking for me
Happiness, is a face that don't look good on me
Yeah I hope, that misery comes looking for me

Woah, misery my company
Woah, misery is looking for me

    General CommentMust say, I miss the old times. Alot. Like way back to "Good Charlotte". Cant bring it back, but even though they've disappointed me in many ways the last year or so, I still love 'em. This isn't bad - I feared it - but it came out pretty awesome :)

    To me this song is about living with your misery, and learning how to deal with it the right way. It's telling us, that it isn't the good times, that gives us our personality, but the times when you have to struggle to make it trough. It makes us real. And deep.And if you're going trough hard times, don't drown yourself - The tears make you, you.

    I dunno .. To me it's just a song about being "happy" about being miserable. Smile at it.

    "Keep your sadness alive" .. Amazing line :)

    General CommentI agree with teenagetrash...I'm glad someone else can still miss the old times but love them a lot. Inexplicably, for some reason.

    General Commenter.. i think its "misery loves company"
    and "happiness is a face that don't look good on me"

    anyway i agree with teenagetrash on the meaning.
    it is the hard times in life that make us who we are..

    and besides how could one appreciate a happy life if he hasn't gone through a hard one first?

    General CommentI think it's "programmed their feelings" , not putting.
    the new cd is really good i think, but what's up with the sync beats? ehh, it's weird but addictive..
