Misery Business

Misery Business is a song by American rock band Paramore and serves as the lead single from their second studio album, Riot! (2007).

The song was written about a past experience of the band’s lead singer, Hayley Williams, which involved a male friend who she felt was being exploited by a girl; when Williams and her friend dated afterwards, she wrote the track in order to “finally explain my side of the story and feel freed of it all”.

The accompanying music video for “Misery Business” was the third to be directed by Shane Drake for the band, and Alternative Press named “Misery Business” the Video of the Year in 2007.

Lyrics:

I have a miserable job

Let’s see from above

She has an hourglass-like body, which runs like clockwork.

It’s only a matter of time before they all run out

She caught it in her mouth when she thought she was mine

 

I waited eight months and she finally let him go.

I told him I couldn’t lie; he was the one for me

It was a fire in 2 weeks.

She got it for me, but I wear the biggest smile

 

oops I didn’t mean to brag

But I took him where he wanted now

oops I didn’t mean to brag

Now to steal it all from you

Misery Business
Misery Business

But God, does it feel so good?

Because I took him where he wanted now

And if it’s possible, you know you do

oh my god it feels so

It feels so good

 

Second chance, they never matter, people never change

If you were a whore, you no longer have anything

I’m sorry, it will never change.

And sorry, the two of us should have exchanged

Excuse me, honey, but I passed it, it looks like this now

 

Well, there are millions of other girls who do it just like you.

Look as innocent as possible to reach anyone

What they want and what they want, it’s easy if you do it right

Well, I refuse, I refuse, I refuse

 

oops I didn’t mean to brag

But I took him where he wanted now

oops I didn’t mean to brag

Now to steal it all from you

 

But God, does it feel so good?

Because I took him where he wanted now

And if it’s possible, you know you do

oh my god it feels so

It feels so good

Misery Business
Misery Business

I saw his wildest dream come true

no one is involved with you

Watch my wildest dreams come true

One of them is not involved.

 

oops I didn’t mean to brag

But I took him where he wanted now

oops I didn’t mean to brag

But I took him where he wanted now

oops I didn’t mean to brag

Now to steal it all from you

 

But God, does it feel so good?

Because I took him where he wanted now

And if you can, you know you do

oh my god it feels so

 

It feels very good
