"I Miss The Misery" as written by and Elizabeth Mae/connolly Hale....
Oh, I miss the misery

I've been a mess since you stayed
I've been a wreck since you changed
Don't let me get in your way
I miss the lies and the pain
The fights that keep us awake
I'm telling you

I miss the bad things
The way you hate me
I miss the screaming
The way that you blame me
Miss the phone calls
When it's your fault
I miss the late nights
Don't miss you at all
I like the kick in the face
And the things you do to me
I love the way that it hurts
I don't miss you, I miss the misery

I've tried but I just can't take it
I'd rather fight than just fake it ('cause I like it rough)
You know that I've had enough
I dare ya to call my bluff
Can't take to much of a good thing
I'm telling you

I miss the bad things
The way you hate me
I miss the screaming
The way that you blame me
Miss the phone calls
When it's your fault
I miss the late nights
Don't miss you at all
I like the kick in the face
And the things you do to me
I love the way that it hurts
I don't miss you, I miss the misery

Just know that I'll make you hurt
(I miss the lies and the pain what you did to me)
When you tell me you'll make it worse
(I'd rather fight all night than watch the TV)
I hate that feeling inside
You tell me how hard you'll try
But when we're at our worst
I miss the misery

I miss the bad things
The way you hate me
I miss the screaming
The way that you blame me

I miss the rough sex
Leaves me a mess
I miss the feeling of pains in my chest
Miss the phone calls
When it's your fault
I miss the late nights
Don't miss you at all
I like the kick in the face
And the things you do to me
I love the way that it hurts

I don't miss you, I miss the misery
I don't miss you, I miss the misery
I don't miss you, I miss the misery

    General CommentThis song refers to the experience of this composer who sings about her miserable days, when she was treated very badly, yet ironically, she misses it.

    General CommentI believe she's being sarcastic in her lyrics cause the guy is a douchebag. However, in some moments the way I intrepet the song as "I effing hate this guy but sometimes I miss him even if times were tough what if we could've worked it out". Great song its fun I love it.

    General CommentIn this song the speaker is saying she's accepting the love she thinks she deserves and hinting at a backstory that suggests she was a child of a bad relationship but the parents stayed together so she thought that was what love was supposed to be so she misses what she thinks she deserves not the person himself she misses the love or possibly the speaker is being sarcastic to the man and saying that if i admitted i missed you i'd being saying i missed an abuser so no i don't miss you cause she states no i don't miss you i miss the misery

    General CommentLzzy Hale sings about someone who she knows that she had been married to someone who treats her through misery. After a couple years she decided to leave him but misses the misery not him

    My InterpretationTo me it seems like this she likes everything about the relationship, except the guy himself.

    General CommentWow, we have some kind of masochist/sadist admitting their true feelings.

    It's clear as a day that the singer is singing abotu a past, abusive relationship yet she kinda finds pleasure in all those beatings and stuff like that. I'm not entirely sure if she still loves that person because I don't really see reason in missing all those things your 'special someone' did to you while proving their undying love.

    Like seriously why the hell would you miss and abusive jerk of a boyfriend/husband/whatever

    Song Meaning"I Miss the Misery" was written about Lzzy and Arejay's parents' divorce. Lzzy explains that the song is a reflection of the feeling of missing having someone to fight with. It is not about abusive relationships, but about growing accustomed to the "push and shove" of being in a relationship, and finding yourself missing it when it is suddenly gone after so long.
