Love Not Dead

Daniel Johnston, Mark Linkous

It was love at first sight
When I talked to her
It was the beginning of a real good time
All I knew was her
And when I came around
Love had lingered on my mind

She said on the telephone
She wished me well.
So alive with a spell
Until I hung up early
I've realized
I've been dead for so long

All my memories of her
Like a fading light I suffer
Thinking of our love for so long
Back in the early days
I saw a lot of her
She was the coolest girl in town

And when I saw her standing there
Everything was all right
I took a journey in my mind
And as I saw her beauty
She was so kind
That was a good time

Everyday we met it was wild
I felt like a child
I loved to see her smile
And as I played piano
I was so inspired
I always had a real good time

And when last we met
I just can't forget
I took for sure I love her bad
I just can't ignore
Her loving response
I always knew she'd be all right

She made me think I was okay
And the love seemed so real
I still got feelings for her
And when I'm on tour
Singing about her forever
I'll remember blessings
And the good times we had

I really tried to play the game of love
And I hate to loose
Maybe I can win somehow
And so I'll dream of her
For a thousand years
Until I see another girl

That's the way it always was
That's the way it always was
That's the way it always was
