This is my attempt at the lyrics for Misery and Hold You Up, I think they are correct for the most part but please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

MISERY

Step right up
Get yourself wrecked
Come on whisper my name
I mean since it's so late
A thousand miles away
I'll be creeping down your spine and making you wait, wait and wait

And I hope you find a handsome young man
Who can love you like I, baby, just like I can
Who will take you out dancing, while you waited me out
Making good use of the blues you found

Go on light it up
Let your hair down
You deserve the wee hours and the shivers downtown
Because I'm waking up
Your stumbling home
What? You think I forget
I remember each and every lonesome night lone

And I hope you find a handsome young man
Who can love you like I, baby, just like I can
Who will take you out dancing, as you waited me out
Making good use of the blues you found
Making misery so proud

And if i saw this much blood
If it was all ????
If the pills in my system came to call you up again
Would you buy me a drink, to calm down
Would you buy me a drink right now?

And I hope you find a handsome young man
Who can love you like I, baby, just like I can
Who will take you out dancing, while you waited me out
making good use of the blues you found

And I hope you find a handsome young man
Who can love you like I, baby, just like I can
Who will take you out dancing, while you waited me out
Making good use of the blues you found
Making good use of the blues you found
Making good use of the blues in you now
Making misery so proud
Making Misery so proud
Making misery so proud
While you waited me out

HOLD YOU UP

Suddenly like lightning there is a doubt
25 was a good time but I'm older
How did I get so lost in the middle of night
Oh where have you been all my life
Round here they pick me up and let me down
Pour some salt in your wounds and then lay you out
I've never seen anybody get out of this town alive

But I'd sure like to show you round
Where the moon lays the ocean down
But if you got someone to see
I don't mean to hold you up

When you finally finished feeling sorry for yourself
Come on I'll give you a reason to feel sorry for yourself
So I moved away from home to get away from it all
Found out the blues could follow me
I used to come home and play records on the tapedeck
In a big old Buick like our fathers had
Turns out we're just like our fathers, babe, well look at that

And I'd sure like to show you around
This old heart loves you now
And if you got someone to see
I don't mean to hold you up

And I'd sure love to prove your wrong
And I ???? trying to steal you love
So if you got someone to be
Well I'd sure love to show around

I think it "I mean, since it's so late" in Misery but besides that looks right

I'm going on this thread to bug you all. Can you help out us US folks who can't get access to these songs? We want to pay for them so no sketchy business.

When does this EP hit iTunes? Tired of the terrible youtube rips already.

Anybody else find this a really weird lyric? The repetition of "lone" just doesn't sit right with me, for some reason.

Misery is gonna be included on an NCIS soundtrack. The Rolling Stone stream sounds so much better than the mp3 I have. Does anyone notice a difference? Seems way cleaner

Haha I love it. The first time Misery is made legally available to purchase in the US it's on the soundtrack of a TV show. That's so weird.

And yes I agree, it does sound better.

it's certainly louder than the mp3 from Amazon UK but it seems the same to me otherwise. there's a lot more brickwalling/clipping throughout the song on the new version when you look at the wavforms.
