Daniel Johnston – When I Met You lyrics

When I met you
I saw the future of the future and what to do
Cna you see me now
I'm more than willing and I want to be your pal

Life's crooked hand
Has already pushed us back together again
I want you awful now
And I'm worrying how you see me plain
Do you really really have to know my name
Time marches on
The parade and the charade keeps turning round
I look for you
In every book in every cartoon movie too
I saw the past
Tomorrows always go they never really last
I found the truth
and I swear it nearly flipped me through the roof

I broke through fate
But every time I would up being sort of late
When I met you
I saw the future of the future and what to do
