Daniel Johnston - Dead Lover's Twisted Heart Lyrics




Though the whole world be blown apart
No matter how dumb or how smart
Still beats beneath the rocky rumble
The dead lover's twisted heart

It's too late to stop or start
Anything else would never reach great art
'Cept the lonely faithful longing
The dead lover's twisted heart

Though the wind is blowing free
And the sun is shining happy
Though your faces show no sympathy
For buried deep beneath the shopping mart
The dead lover's twisted heart

Though this story, sad it is
Wrapped in sorrow, borne of mystery
It was years of painless suffering
The dead lover's twisted heart

    Though the whole world be blown apart
    No matter how dumb or how smart
    Still beats beneath the rocky rumble
    The dead lover's twisted heart

    It's too late to stop or start
    Anything else would never reach great art
    'Cept the lonely faithful longing
    The dead lover's twisted heart

    Though the wind is blowing free
    And the sun is shining happy
    Though your faces show no sympathy
    For buried deep beneath the shopping mart
    The dead lover's twisted heart

    Though this story, sad it is
    Wrapped in sorrow, borne of mystery
    It was years of painless suffering
    The dead lover's twisted heart

    the lyrics are very good. Just experienced a break up last night. Over the weekend it happeend to be Hi, how are you day in Austin. I found myself revisiting a lot of Johnston's work. This is an excellent example of his lyrical work, and so much could be done with this. The meaning of the song is very deep. Not enough artists deep like this anymore.
