The world was a wreck 'til you came by my side
Now it's gone up in flames
And you ask why for love you bear such agony
I was just wondering exactly the same
It feels like last Monday, but hey it's the next
Is there no end to this?
And with so many miserable people around
You gotta find someone we can be miserable with

But I never would suffer such sweet misery
Not for anyone else
Never wrote a good love song
But here it goes anyway
I love you my darlin' because you put me through hell
I said I love you my darlin' 'cause you put me through hell

The ship it was sinking as we slept down below
Then you shook me awake
Now we stand on the deck, all the lifeboats are gone
Sometimes I wish you'd just left me to sink
But I think of the last year as the next one rolls by
Try to sort disarray
If you asked me to trade for a love with no pain
Baby you know I'd take this any day

But I never would suffer such sweet misery
Not for anyone else
Never wrote a good love song
But here it goes anyway
I love you my darlin' because you put me through hell
I said I love you my darlin' 'cause you put me through hell
