"Fake It Through the Day (Miss Misery, early version)" as written by and Kris Kristofferson....
I'll fake it through the day
With some help from Johnny Walker Red
And the cold pain behind my eyes
That shoots back through my head
With two tickets torn in half
In a lot with nothing to do
But it's all right, because some enchanted night
I'll be with you

Tarot cards and the lines in my hand
Tell me I'm wrong, but they're untrue

I got plans for both of us
That involve a trip out of town
To a place I've seen in a magazine
That you left lying around
I can't hold my liquor but
I keep a good attitude
Because it's all right, some enchanted night
I'll be with you

And though you'd rather see me gone
Then to see there come the day
I'll be waiting for you anyway

Next door, the TV's flashing
Blue frames on the wall
Its a comedy from the seventies
With a lead no one recalls
He vanished into oblivion
It's easy to do
And I cried a sea when you talked to me
The day you said we were through
But it's all right, some enchanted night
I'll be with you

    General Commentthe newer version is more put together

    "He vanished into oblivion its easy to do,
    And I cried a sea when you talked to me
    The day you said we were through
    But its alright, some enchanted night i'll be with you. "

    these are the most amazing lyrics!

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the line "Tear up cards in the lines in my hand"
    is actually "Tarot cards and the lines in my hand"

    General CommentYeah, not crappy, even in comparison. I think I prefer this version, just because of the lyrics. It feels more honest than the GWH version.

    General CommentI prefer this version too. It's more melancholy and grounded than GWH version.

    General CommentI like this version of the song better as well; both are nice, but this one is closer to the spirit in which it was written.

    Oh, and the start of the last bit sounds like this to me:

    Next door the tv's flashing blue frames on the wall
