Miss Misery
Elliott Smith Lyrics

I'll fake it through the day
With some help from Johnny Walker Red
And the cold pain behind my eyes
It shoots back through my head
With two tickets torn in half
And a lot of nothing to do
But it's all right
'Cause some enchanted night I'll be with you

The 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
'Cause it's all right
Some enchanted night I'll be with you

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

Next door the TV's flashing
Blue frames on the wall
It's a comedy from the 70s
With a lead no one recalls
He vanished into oblivion
It's easy to do
And I cry to see 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

Are you sitting comfortably then we'll begin...

This comment section is full of such a beautiful array of life. I wish we could all sit down in a room and talk about the places we've been, the things we've seen, what has lead us to go out our way to listen to this meaningful melody. There is so much to learn, in such little time.

I wish things were different in the world we live in.

There are certain things we cannot change media, terrorism and governments. However you can change your life's destination. When does one sit in awe of its own self fulfilment? It's a trick question your life will never be fulfilled. You will never reach self fulfilment. There will always be something to learn, something to do, something to see. Life is about the journey, not the destination. However you need a destination, a goal, to create a journey. The journey will lead you onto your next journey and soon you will get the ball rolling and be in the motion of life.

The simplest answer I can give which you will perceive your own way is "Life is meant to be lived".

So enjoy the little time you have here. Don't fill yourself with petty hate. What if you die tomorrow? What was the last thing you said to your friends and family? What was the thing that you said you always wanted to do, but for some reason never did? Would you be worried about your ego? all these materialistic items you buy? When you're lying there on your deathbed.

I have set myself a destination tonight and this comment is my first journey.

I hope you come away from this comment section with a different point of view.

I hope to one day comeback to this comment and see a thread of the different journeys we've taken.

Thank you for being here. Thank you for being you. Thank you.

P.S I love Rick & Morty + Elliot smith :D

best american solo songwriter in decades..

Callum McGovan

@Rj SKUM If im right he wrote a version and then the lyrics were slightly changed by another writer to more reflect the movie. His Early Version is on spotify and is great


@Funmakers i seen in an interview he gave that he was specifically asked to write this song for the movie by the director. He watched a screening of it and wrote the song.

wil thompson

Paul Simon?


I’m trying to analyze the lyrics to see how they can be applied to the screenplay. Wonder if it was composed specifically for the movie. I can see parallels and want to compare them to Will’s liberation from his past.


"I can't call her back, this girl's like fuckin perfect right now. I don't wanna ruin that."

"Maybe you're perfect right now. Maybe you don't wanna ruin that."
