Daniel Johnston - Going Down Lyrics




I think of all the times
I felt so low
When I got to feeling better
I got naive
And thought that it would stay

Going down
Going down again

Feeling small, very small
All, all the time
Been feeling like this
Since junior high
When will it all stop

Going down
Going down again

Think that I once had it all (-a-ha-hall)
There's a man inside me
I'm gonna destroy
And he will be no more
He'll be dead and I'll be free
I'll unlock that door

Going down
Going down again

    I will never forget you, Danny. I’ll think of you and your music every single day. Thank you so much, your music had been impacting me since I first heard “Walking the Cow” and now I love my life through your music. We love you, Dan. You’ll live on forever through your art and your music. ❤️

    such a beautiful song

  4. patrick

    Media loves the narrative that Daniel Johnston was some simplistic, amateurish savant. This completely disrupts that - it's sprawling dense and ambitious. Love him, rest in peace.

    RIP to this beautiful soul

  9. Bernardo Catrilef

    There's a man inside me

  10. ApexCactus

    Oh man, this song is singing my life back to me, by a guy in 1982.

    Wow...I do feel like going down.

  11. 69gangstar69

    I like the feel of the chords.

    I think of all the times
    I felt so low 
    When I got to feeling better 
    I got naive 
    and thought that it would stay

    Going down
    Going down again

    Feeling small, very small 
    All, all the time 
    Been feeling like this 
    Since junior high
    When will it all stop

    Going down
    Going down again

    Think that I once had it all [-a-ha-hall ]
    There's a man inside me 
    I'm gonna destroy 
    And he will be no more 
    He'll be dead and I'll be free 
    I'll unlock that door

    Going down
    Going down again

    Sounded like the line was :everytime I got to feeling better. At least that's how it sounds to me
