Isolation Day 13 & Because I’m Only Happy when It Rains

Am I late again?

Today is the second to the last day of my isolation. I am due for re-test this coming Tuesday, it’s up to the office whether they’d ask me to be back despite knowing that my family is still under quarantine or if they’d be generous and make me stay home for a week.

This week’s Song Lyric Challenge asks us to use the following prompt words: Anguish, Misery, Torment — our choice of song should have any of these words in the title or lyrics. For rules, pls visit Jim’s blog — it does contain pingbacks that you can visit as well.

This week, I choose a favorite from Garbage – I’m Only Happy When It Rains — in reality, rain makes my day dreary.

I’m Only Happy When It Rains

Songwriters: Douglas Elwin Erickson / Shirley Ann Manson / Steve W. Marker / Bryan David Vig

I’m only happy when it rains
I’m only happy when it’s complicated
And though I know you can’t appreciate it
I’m only happy when it rains

You know I love it when the news is bad
Why it feels so good to feel so sad?
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me

I’m only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are goin’ wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I’m only happy when it rains

I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn’t accidentally tell you that
I’m only happy when it rains
You’ll get the message by the time I’m through
When I complain about me and you
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me

Pour your misery down
You can keep me company
As long as you don’t care

I’m only happy when it rains
You wanna hear about my new obsession?
I’m riding high upon a deep depression
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me

I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me

Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me

    1. I started checking out the pingbacks on your blog, and yes, ladies love their garbage πŸ˜€

      I was in HS when I first heard of this song and it became an instant favorite!
