Oh yeah
Oh yeah
So scared of breaking it
That you won't let it bend
And I wrote two hundred letters
I won't ever send
Sometimes these cuts are so much
Deeper then they seem
You'd rather cover up
I'd rather let them bleed
So let me be
And I'll set you free

[CHORUS]
I am in misery
There ain't nobody
Who can comfort me (oh yeah)
Why won't you answer me?
The silence is slowly killing me (oh yeah)
Girl you really got me bad
You really got me bad
I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna get you back

Your salty skin and how
It mixes in with mine
The way it feels to be
Completely intertwined
It's not that I did not care
It's that I did not know
It's not what I did not feel,
It's what I didn't show
So let me be
And I'll set you free

[CHORUS]
I am in misery
There ain't nobody
Who can comfort me (oh yeah)
Why won't you answer me?
The silence is slowly killing me (oh yeah)
Girl you really got me bad
You really got me bad
I'm gonna get you back
Now I'm gonna get you back

Say your faith is shaken
You may be mistaken
You keep me wide awake and
Waiting for the sun
I'm desperate and confused
So far away from you
I'm getting there
Don't care where I have to go

Why do you do what you do to me, yeah
Why won't you answer me, answer me yeah
Why do you do what you do to me yeah
Why won't you answer me, answer me yeah

[CHORUS]
I am in misery
There ain't nobody
Who can comfort me (oh yeah)
Why won't you answer me?
The silence is slowly killing me (oh yeah)
Girl you really got me bad
You really got me bad
I'm gonna get you back
Gonna get you back

Girl you really got me bad
You really got me bad
I'm gonna get you back
Gonna get you back (x2)

    i really like this song. i was with my friends lindsey and giana and we were playing this game. Me and giana were sitting on her bed while lindsey was playing this song. I also heard this song and started to think of "missouri" which some people call "misery" and i was thinking about how much fun i had w/ family in missouri and i was like the memories i had in missouri were not bad. i know it is just a joke though. another thing, some people have said that they feel like misery with someone. yes i have felt that way. i am not going to say who becuase that would be rude.

    seems like the guy in this song is trying to get into a serious relationship with this girl, but she just doesnt want anything serious.
