You're Only Happy When You're Miserable (Feat. Ringo Starr)

Crowell, Rodney

Band/Artist: Crowell, Rodney

Album: Texas

Go sell your snake oil to someone you used to know
I've heard your whining till my motor just won't go
The sky ain't falling though I know you wish it would
I almost hate to tell you that I'm leaving here for good

You're only happy when you're miserable
I'm all amped up, you're all clamped down
I've never seen you with your cup half full
Worst case scenario, yeah that's the girl I know

Go tell your mother it was all my fault
Your baby brother, I ain't worth my salt
Your bold prediction that I'd bail on you
Turns out my nightmare is your dream come true

You're only happy when you're miserable
Go on and run it in the ground
Hard time I get it through my own thick skull
Your doomsday fantasy means more to you than me
You're only happy when you're miserable

Don't know the last time that I've seen you smile
I only know it's been a long long while
I tried to change you like I thought I should
You pulled the wool on me, it ain't no mystery

You court disaster with a surgeons skill
I've got good news for you, I've had my fill
The sun is shining and you're pulling out your hair
Too close to crazy to pretend I even care

You're only happy when you're miserable
I ramp it up, you clamp it down
You've made an art form out of pitiful
It's raining cats and dogs, you'd rather snakes and frogs
You're only happy when you're miserable
You're only happy when you're miserable
You're only happy when you're miserable
You're only happy when you're miserable
