Daniel Johnston - Evening Stars Lyrics




Walkin' my baby underneath a tree
Everything seems real to me
And the evening stars do shine

I'm holding her by the palm of her hand
She seems to understand
And the evening stars do shine

You've been kind to me and I won't forget
Kinder than anybody's been to me yet
Oh oh

Wandering around now, nobody told me
I figured it out for myself
And the evening stars do shine

I was thinking just the other day
My, how things have changed since you've been mine
Oh oh ooh

You've been kind to me and I won't forget
Kinder than anybody's been to me yet
Oh oh

    Walkin' my baby underneath a tree
    Everything seems real to me
    And the evening stars do shine

    I'm holding her by the palm of her hand
    She seems to understand
    And the evening stars do shine

    You've been kind to me and I won't forget
    Kinder than anybody's been to me yet
    Ohhhhh ohhh

    Wandering around now, nobody told me
    I figured it out for myself
    And the evening stars do shine

    I was thinking just the other day
    My, how things have changed since you've been mine
    Oh oh ooh

    You've been kind to me and I won't forget
    kinder than anybody's been to me yet
    Ohhhhh ohhh

    You can hear the Beatles influence shining through

    absolute Bliss-

    When something can speak thru a crappy little home recording on and old up-right piano in somebody's personal home, when the spirit can speak thru THAT, then you know something really is there. Suzanne Vega spoke AT us; Niel Young spoke FOR us; but only Daniel Johnston, in his utter innocence, speaks WITH us.

    @TheKFITTY Check out Daniel Johnston - Discography on piratebay probably the most complete collection of his work that I can find on the internet. Still missing a good amount of stuff though

  13. Pile_of _Butts

    Thank you for this.

    @TheKFITTY true words.

    I'm on a mission to find every one of Daniel Johnston's old songs on this site, but it's hard when so many of them only have a couple hundred views. Even I have videos with more views, and they're definitely NOT of amazing songs like this.

    Daniel needs more recognition.

    TheKFITTY its been pretty easy for me to get into rabbit holes of daniel’s songs with only hundreds of views and vhs recordings of songs he never released like hard time and i live my broken dreams are some of my favorites, look up badlydrawnfrog ‘s channel he uploaded a bunch of videos he made with daniel in the 80’s last year

    Buggle Magnum

    Oh that was 6 years ago that explains why its much easier to find his music now
