Misery Business
Paramore Lyrics


Hit that, hit that snare

I'm in the business of misery, let's take it from the top
She's got a body like an hourglass, that's ticking like a clock
It's a matter of time before we all run out
When I thought he was mine, she caught him by the mouth
I waited eight long months
She finally set him free
I told him I couldn't lie, he was the only one for me
Two weeks and we had caught on fire
She's got it out for me, but I wear the biggest smile

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
'Cause I got him where I want him now
And if you could, then you know you would
'Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good

Second chances they don't ever matter, people never change
Once a whore, you're nothing more, I'm sorry that'll never change
And about forgiveness, we're both supposed to have exchanged
I'm sorry honey, but I passed it up, now look this way
Well, there's a million other girls who do it just like you
Looking as innocent as possible to get to who
They want and what they like, it's easy if you do it right
Well I refuse, I refuse, I refuse!

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
'Cause I got him where I want him right now
And if you could, then you know you would
'Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good

I watched his wildest dreams come true
And not one of them involving you
Just watch my wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving

Whoa, well I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
'Cause I got him where I want him now
And if you could, then you know you would
'Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good

Ok, confession time. I hated this song for a really long time, I was a metal head who studied music theory and looked down on “pop” music for its simplicity.

But then that Olivia what’s-her-face song comes out and I noticed she ripped off a melody from Misery Business. (This is where I become a hypocrite and realize the how good this song actually is.)

I inform my wife that this teen pop star ripped off Paramore, then (cynically) started listing the ways Paramore’s misery business is a superior song.

At this point I realized Paramore was actually a really good band with an original sound, clever lyrics, and had beautiful powerful vocals.

I realize now that I hated Paramore because of this music video. It gave me the impression that Hayley was just a more edgy version of Avril Lavigne, but now I see this is clearly not the case. If for some reason your still reading- take it from someone who listens to the most pretentious genres of music- this is a damn good song.

I was really big into Paramore in middle school. It definitely reminds me of my middle school days 😩

@Julie L. I'll be 26 this year! Lol! I remember being a little girl when this song came out and dancing around with my best friend in her living room while watching the music video over and over again 😂💛

Julie L.

@Leah Hembree just out of curiosity, how old are you? 😂 I still can’t believe this song came out 14 years ago

I forgot how strong the "not like other girls" energy of this video was.

@Ducc._ yeah so basically i said gamers r misogynists. are u trying to argue that u, someone who is unaffected by misogyny, didnt notice it therefore its not an issue? or are u misreading me

Ducc._

@homekeys “gamers aren’t girlhaty they’re just misogynists”

homekeys
