Daniel Johnston - Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Your Grievances Lyrics




Don't let the sun go down on your grievance
Respect love of the heart over lust of the flesh
Do yourself a favor: become your own savior
And don't let the sun go down on your grievances

And when you wake up in the morning
You'll have a brand new feeling
And you'll find yourself healing
So don't let the sun go down on your grievances

And yet if you find yourself in the dark
And you're left holding the bag
Then take care of it right away
And don't let the sun go down on your grievances again

Sometimes you might want to give up
But keep that chin up
'Cause you're gonna find
You're gonna find
Sometimes you might be alone
But don't feel lonely
'Cause you're gonna find
You're gonna find
So don't let the sun go down on your grievances

Start each day with a clean slate
You'll feel better if you can shake off all that hate
And don't forget to forgive and forget
And don't let the sun go down on your grievances

Don't let the sun go down on your grievances
Everybody!
Respect love of the heart over lust of the flesh
Sing it!
Do yourself a favor: become your own savior
And don't let the sun go down on your grievances
Don't let it!

    This is the best song i ever heard

  5. Roberto Frattini

    RIP genius

  6. Daves Copies

    RIP Daniel.I took my lucky break and I broke it in two,
    Put on my worried shoes, my worried shoes,
    Took me so many miles and they never wore out,
    My worried shoes, my worried shoes,
    Oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo, my worried shoes,
    I made a mistake that I never forgot,
    Tied knots in the laces of my worried shoes,
    Every step that I take is another mistake,
    I march further and further away in my worried shoes,
    Oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo, oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo, my worried shoes,
    My shoes took me down a crooked path,
    Away from all welcome mats,
    My worried shoes,
    I looked all around and saw the sun shining down,
    Took off my worried shoes, my worried shoes,
    Oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo, oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo, oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo,
    My worried shoes

  7. BigDoob420

  19. old lady in a shoe

    I thought the po was in my phone again this is actually real hahaha

  20. AssPhyxiation

    This was the song for our first dance when we tied the knot. We’re divorced now. I guess we let the sun go down on our “grievience.”

  21. Joe Rodriguez

    “Become your own savior” Daniel Johnston is a CULTURAL MARXIST

  22. aaron mumbles

    Hi, how are you day 💛

  23. neo the one

    i keep comming back to this song....so pure

  24. Jes Di

    Thank you Bill for introducing me to this song R.I.P

  25. jane currie

    daniel, you are just amazing

  26. Robert Mallory

    Why did I despise this man's music the first time I stumbled across it? It's awesome, his lyrics are fantastic, excellent melodies, and those are vocals can sometimes be a bit harsh, it is nonetheless pure in spirit.

    neo the one

    sometimes it takes time

    Jeremy Owww my eye Stephens

    Robert Mallory ego is why.

  27. JmC69Hd

    Man you know if everyone lived by this song we'd all be in paradise by now..

  32. Clay Mcintyre

    I dont want the sun to go down on anything

  33. Lívia

    essa música é MT importante rs

  34. Steve K.

    The "Everybody!" near the end "gets me" every time, knowing that Danny was singing to nothing but the stuff in his brother's garage!

    daisy

    Steve K. but also he was singing to the future crowds. Assuming he really believed in himself, he created that reality--in time.

  35. Greg Kozak

    We need far more music and far more people like this in the world.

    Phil Paul

    I started making my own music, check it out.

    Vegas Martino

    I'm doing my own home music like Dan, you can check my videos. I'll appreciate it so much. Thankyou.

    Greg Kozak

    So have I! Been doing it for almost fifteen years, now. https://soundcloud.com/greg-kozak

  36. misterapricot

    He hits the high notes like Alfalfa from the Little Rascals. Beautiful!

  37. Jacob Prince

    One of my favorite DJ tracks

  38. Jacob Prince

    My favorite Daniel Johnston track

  39. SWa tX

    Ah Daniel, if only we were all grown ups

  40. Jane Currie

    what happens when it does and theres nothing you can do, wish life was so good but its not , so we all need to keep that chin up, cause we wil find xx

  41. Rob Ray

    Don't let the sun go down on your grievances
    Respect love of the heart over lust of the flesh
    Do yourself a favor become your own savior
    And don't let the sun go down on your grievances

    And when you wake up in the morning
    You'll have a brand new feeling
    And you'll find yourself healing
    So don't let the sun go down on your grievances

    And yet if you find yourself in the dark
    And you're left holding the bag
    Then take care of it right away
    And don't let the sun go down on your grievances again

    Sometimes you might want to give up
    But keep that chin up
    'Cause you're gonna find
    You're gonna find

    Sometimes you might be alone
    But don't feel lonely
    'Cause you're gonna find
    You're gonna find and

    Don't let the sun go down on your grievances
    Start each day with a clean slate
    You'll feel better if you can shake off all that hate
    And don't forget to forgive and forget
    Don't let the sun go down on your grievances

    Don't let the sun go down on your grievances everybody
    Respect love of the heart over lust of the flesh sing it
    Do yourself a favor become your own savior
    And don't let the sun go down on your grievances

  42. John Davis

    Timeless!  Whoo... Sing IT!!! :)

  43. Michelle Luschen

    This song is joyful but there is definitely an undercurrent of desperation and sadness in his voice - pretty much just like life - such a wonderful song, songwriter, and performance.

  44. Big diesel

    Wish I could meet this guy.

    Valeria Nohemi Zurita

    😭😭😭😭

  45. War.is.a. Racket

    check out clem snide doing this

    Nacho Oulton

    Yeah it has some years now...great cover

  46. Vixx Celacea

    Voice reminds me a lot of Bob Dylan. I don't think this person can sing and it's not my style of music, but the message is nice.

  47. Britton DeJong

    i love how he mispronounces it

    Opinunate ted

    +Britton DeJong He's from West Virginia.

    MacGuffin

    Same. Some of the best lyrics are ones that either don't make sense or get something wrong. I like ar with little cracked and edges to it.

  48. Shannon McGill

    No trace of irony anyplace. Pure earnestness & innocent joy. Love you, Daniel. Grateful for your music.

  49. Kelly Cannon

    The whole "jam" at the end just makes me smile like i can't stop smiling. Woo! 

  50. Julian Dale

    I hope ol' Danny knows this is one of his deepest songs

  51. Kyle Andersen

    Thank you, finnaly someone who doesnt spam his Daniel J vids with ads.
    You sir, are a hero.

  52. kipponi

    I don't know how and why Daniel's music goes through the heart?
    It's like his soul talks to other soul.You cannot resist it.
    It also torn you apart.And in the end you are purified.Like all dirt inside you is disappered.Unbeleivable experience.
    It's like meditation by music.

    James Krautheim

    kipponi that’s a great way to describe this piece of music 🎼 Rest In Peace ✌️.

  53. Goocho

    Somehow I like the fact that he mispronounces "grievances" so egregiously.

    Goocho

    @***** Yea probably.

    Opinunate ted

    +38Gaucho I doubt it. It was a regional accent he grew up with. combined with his own mental quirks.

    rapmaster

    +Eichin Schmeichin Totally on porpoise.

    DJKevvy Kev

    You have to wonder how he would pronounce "egregiously"

    He is one of my favourite artists. Damaged. Honest. Brilliant.

    Dh-1011

    Fuck you

  54. James Wilson

    become your own savior 

  55. Gita Platthy

    This is great! Beautiful! So awesome; I love it. Oh God! You're so big. 'Really impressed down....

  56. Kristopher Medlin

    Can't wait to see him play tonight! This is a dream come true.

  57. ernieleon123

    This made me feel a lil better but his other songs take me back

  58. Tomas Pelaez

    Everybody! Sing it!

  59. Péricles Azevedo

    É com certeza uma das músicas que eu mais gosto na vida; tive a sorte de ver ao vivo.
    Soa até meio que "gospel", não sei dizer mas é emocionante demais.

  60. Zach Bryson

    Man 2:30 gets me every time. Such a good song!

  61. daniel prefontaine

    thank you, i love you too.

  62. Laura Anderson

    My sweetheart. x

  63. james redhawk

  64. C'est CamiBlue

    he's pointing his finger at me: "sometimes YOU might be alone, but don't feel lonely, 'cause you're gonna findi, YOOOOOU'RE gonna fiiiiiiiiind" Viva Daniel Johnston.

  65. djazr

    SHAKE OFF ALL THAT HATE

  66. Zdrohce Chordz

    yay yay yay yay yay yay yay

  67. WAS

    very true

  68. lostsidewalk

    always reminds me of Mark Linkous

  69. seldomsceen

    this is amazing lol

  70. UBAfilms

    O also! Are you the same Laura he wrote "You're Not Laura" after?

  71. UBAfilms

    Aha! Laura your'e awesome! Just ignore these people, they aren't worth it....also you really know Daniel? I wish I could meet him at least once in my life.Every lyric he writes I can relate to in a weird way that I can't even describe! Its absolute magic, and he truly is the most amazing human being I know of. Next time you see him please just give him a big hug for me! It's weird to know how he will never know how much he impacted my life. I owe him at least a hug.

  72. Fabian Valentino

    I love this guy !!!!!

  73. Laura Anderson

    Is that two slices of bread, buckshot and mayo? Sounds good. I promise I'll clean up after you do it!

  74. Ryan Matthews

    the Laura Anderson shotgun suicide kind. :)

  75. Laura Anderson

    What kind of sandwich do you prefer? :)

  76. Logan Sommer

    Daniel Johnston's music is so weird, i love it.

  77. Laura Anderson

    Actually, you're more repressed than Chinese Democracy, honey. Why bring sexual politics on to my fiance's page? Really. That hatred, of yourself, will kill you slowly and miserably.

  78. Laura Anderson

    Dan would be heartbroken.

  79. Laura Anderson

    Honeyheart, do yourself a favor and become....? (Last night at a show Dan asked me why everyone is so reverent. He would have loved you! ;):
    Dan: "They keep coming up to me aaying they love my art and music
    Laura: "Tell them then, 'Why in God's name are you paying me all this money for tix and merch?" (We did ourselves a favor and tried it out! Dan is gracious to the point of exhaustion, beyond. AUSROTTE can you chill the shit out? Don't listen! That's all you have to do, darling. xxxxx LA + DJ

  80. slick back

    The man likes music and its his way of expressing himself, give the guy a break!
    yeah he may not be the best singer in the world but hes doing what he loves.

  81. Laura Anderson

    Thanks for posting! Dan is a dear friend and powerful artist. Sort of like Bob Dylan in that he can be unpalatable to people -- just not up their alleys. Pity them for their dark alleys? ;)

  82. john hawley

    do us a favour,STOP SINGING, OMG

  83. Ryan Matthews

    You replied to yourself, dumbass.

  84. usawthat

    Do the world a favor and die!

  85. Erling Andreassen

    I "became my own saviour". I managed to stay out of hospital when I was a minor, and I myself found the diagnosis none of the shrinks found, and it was easy. I was an aspie,that was all, an aspie drug user who got scizophrenia-like symptoms on speed! Case solved in 5 minutes after I read about aspie symptoms and related problems in a book I found. All the shrinks were wrong, I was right and my physician agreed immediately and had me diagnosed at a smart shrink's instead. Now I can even act sane!

  86. Erling Andreassen

    I have been comitted to psych wards with the diagnosis "paranoid scizophrenia" at least 8 or 9 times..but I'm not a real case, it has all been drug induced instances. It's a horrible state to be in, my sympathy to all real sufferers of the disease!:)

  87. ironingFL

    the first emo bands were Rites of Spring & Embrace (look up emo wikipedia article or the history page on fourfa dot com. The Cure was never under that genre umbrella.

  88. usawthat

    Like I Said DOUCE BAG. ( like you are loser)

  89. Ryan Matthews

    You can't even spell. You're an illiterate douche.

  90. usawthat

    What a douce bag.

  91. chuckwest28

    yes I don't consider modern metal or hardcore music ,but to each his own ,thanks for clearyfing that.

  92. chuckwest28

  93. chuckwest28
