Nazareth - Miss Misery - Live 1975




"Miss Misery" is the second track from "Hair of the Dog", the sixth studio album by the Scottish hard rock band Nazareth, released in 1975. The album was recorded at Escape Studios, Kent, with additional recording and mixing at AIR Studios, London, and is the group’s best known and highest selling release, with over two million copies sold worldwide.


After three albums with Deep Purple's Roger Glover producing, Manny Charlton stepped into that position, one he filled for several subsequent albums.


It was Nazareth's first big hit album (aside from the minor success of Razamanaz), including classics such as the title track, a version of The Everly Brothers' "Love Hurts" (on the US version, but not the Canadian/European, it replaced the original "Guilty"), "Beggars Day" and "Miss Misery".





Lyrics


Since you came into my life

It's the same old situation

Empty days and lonely nights

Filled with bitterness and frustration.


Walking lonely in the cold

Tryin' to find the answer

Spend my money on a crystal ball

And the charms of a gypsy dancer.

Tryin' to break the spell you hold on me


[chorus:]

You're miss misery

That song you lay on me

Set me free, set me free

Please, please, please


Everyday is filled with shame

My nights are filled with anger

Hollow lies, forced denial

If you told the truth I can't remember.


You know I've got to find my way

Got to find a reason

Got to find your weakness

So I can end your witchin' season.

Got to break the spell you hold on me


[chorus:]


[lead:]


Can't think how I got myself

Caught up in this nightmare

Evil schemes, midnight screams

Come on somebody listen to my prayer


I'd give all I've got to give

Just to find my way out

Got it going but I can't let go

I'm trapped on this crazy 'round about

Tryin' to break the spell you hold on me


[chorus:]
