Daniel Johnston – I Know What I Want lyrics

Love, I know what I want
And I know what it could be
Know what it could be yeah

Now, down and out
Like a flower that wielded
The coward to be rebuilded

Sad, sad and alone
Like a babble in the desert

Buried in the ground

Love, sweet and fun
This I feel would
Someday be mine

Love, soft and real
Something I can feel
Something that is kind
