Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now
by The Smiths

I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
But heaven knows I'm miserable now

I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
And heaven knows I'm miserable now

In my life
Why do I give valuable time
To people who don't care if I live or die?

Two lovers entwined pass me by
And heaven knows I'm miserable now

I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
And heaven knows I'm miserable now

In my life
Oh, why do I give valuable time
To people who don't care if I live or die?

What she asked of me at the end of the day
Caligula would have blushed

"Oh, you've been in the house too long" she said
And I naturally fled

In my life
Why do I smile
At people who I'd much rather kick in the eye?

I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
But heaven knows I'm miserable now

"Oh, you've been in the house too long" she said
And I naturally fled

In my life
Oh, why do I give valuable time
To people who don't care if I live or die?

Believe in Lord Jesus Christ He alone can give you forgiveness of sins & a reason to live a abundant life... no matter what HELL is real place & IS MERCILESSLY MERCILESS. ALL without Him no matter Actress, pornstars or great musicians no matter how good they are in music money or seduction they cannot save themselves from eternal doom of HELL. Only the Lord God Jesus Christ can save you from all your sins & wash you to make you brand new creation to live by His great mercy & rock for His glory by His Grace. He can make you high by His Grace breath with no drugs, porn or alcohol. My friend "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shouldn't perish but will have everlasting life (John3:16) I was a drug addict awesome musician and guitar player was addict to Porn, masturbastion also but I was saved from deathbed by His undeserved favor... My friend when I was about to die because of over drugdose. I was almost dead at that time was about to die but I got to know about JESUS & called upon Jesus He is REAL M TELLING THE TRUTH... GUESS WHAT HE HEALED me from sickness & saved me from deathbed by His mercies not based on my good works which I did none in my life.. but His UNMERITED Grace which also is for all wicked sinners to be saved made righteous without performance through faith in His Blood & Finished work of the Cross. JESUS LOVES YOU WITHOUT CONDITIONS OR LAWS.. HE IS THE ONLY TRUE LAW OF LIFE NOT DEATH MY DEAR.. AND IF YOU BELIEVE IN HIM YOU WILL BE MADE FREE FROM PRISON & LAWS OF SIN DEATH. &...... That's how began your new life with peace n clear conscious by His Grace. ....... rock & reign in life without rules by the Holy ghost blaze.... I want to tell you. ~JESUS CARES FOR YOU MY FRIEND. HE DIED & ROSE UP FROM DEAD TO GIVE YOU HEAVEN IN EARTH & DESIRES OF YOUR HEART AND HE CAN FULFILL YOUR DREAMS BECAUSE HE IS THE FATHER OF CREATION & CREATIVITY & TIME. HE can turn around your time... TIME IS IN HIS HANDS & ALSO KEYS OF DEATH & HELL. HE IS NOT RELIGION..... HE DOES NOT WANT TO GIVE YOU LAWS OR RELIGION BUT RELATIONSHIP. HE LOVES YOU & WANTS TO GIVE LIFE OF JOY FREEDOM ETERNITY TO JUST RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD & BELIEVE IN HIS ETERNAL SACRIFICE HE DID ALREADY FOR YOU & I TO REDEEM US FROM CURSE SIN & THE LAW THROUGH FAITH IN HIM. PRAY TO HIM HE IS WAITING WITH ARMS OPEN WIDE FOR YOU BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU WITHOUT CONDITIONS. COME AS YOU ARE TO HIM.. because Hell is mercilessly very merciless. Only God saviour is Jesus Christ who is merciful. (Romans 2) wages of Sin is death but gift of God is eternal through our Lord Jesus Christ for all who believe in Him. (ROMANS 10:4) CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW AND RIGHTEOUSNESS TO ALL WHO BELIEVE
