Daniel Johnston - I Live For Love Lyrics

I live for love
I live for love
And I can hardly wait until Saturday

When I see her because I live for love
The moon and the stars they know how I feel

'Cause I live for love
I live for love
I live for love
And I can hardly wait until Saturday

When I see her because I live for love
The moon and the stars they know

What I'm thinking of

'Cause I live for love

Daniel Johnston I Live For Love Comments
  1. Puber T. Snatches

    we love you Danny



  3. wena, como olvidar cuando estuvo en Chile


    in the song he sang here, he said "here i stand, with a sweet angel, holding my hand" , and in his song "Held the Hand" he says "I was on MTV, everybody was looking at me, Held the hand of the devil." And now I wonder if that "sweet angel" was Lucifer. Lucifer was a fallen angel, he does give fame, I believe what Daniel said was true in his documentary. He asked the devil for fame and the devil wanted Daniel to look crazy, even made him ill, so that people would believe it was all lies and never find out the truth for themselves. Many watching this will never know the truth

    deeps mered mess

    I think the angel was meant to be Laurie


    Have you seen the movie? The devil and Daniel Johnston?


    He's also famous for referencing his own songs in his other songs

    deeps mered mess

    @APOCALYPTO yeah, i know. He calls laurie an angel in "laurie". "Laurie, sweet, an angel dear"


    ah I see, well to each their own I guess

  5. James Williams

    Ummmmmm... fucking what????

  6. Cole Johnstone

    I think I’ll make a cover of this song sitting in front of his Mural on Hi How Are you day.

    deeps mered mess

    Are you doing it?

    Cole Johnstone

    deeps mered mess should I?

    deeps mered mess

    @Cole Johnstone yeah

    Cole Johnstone

    deeps mered mess ok

    Cole Johnstone

    deeps mered mess I just did & posted it


    did he ever record this for an album? I feel like I've searched and never found it. Such a shame this is one of my favorite tunes he ever wrote.

  8. Selina Jane

    Appreciate this upload. I had this clip forever on a VHS that I had recorded from Peter Zaremba’s Austin episode. It snapped and I haven’t seen it in 20 years. Thank you!

  9. Alto Canal de Youtube

    fukin genius

  10. Mag Magnet

    It's not about talent or tools, it's about story and authenticity

  11. Jon Myers

    I will take him over Dylan

  12. OmaarlaGgg

    Reast in peace 🖤

  13. daniel mares

    R.I.P Daniel

  14. Jared thrash

    I don't get all the hype is with his music it sounds pretty bad to me I mean his lyrics where good but thats about it.I think people like it because he's mentally and he stands out as a musician.

    deeps mered mess

    of course a big part of what makes him interesting is his life story. It's inspiring to see someone with so many hardships actually manage to make it (kinda) big, after making music for so long, with little to no recognition. But, he wouldn't have gotten big if he didn't make good music. Though he may not always be on beat, or key, he is an exceptional songwriter. His lyrics are fantastic, his hooks are catchy, and I'd go as far as saying he's the best at using minimalism the best. On his guitar songs, he often uses the same three or four chords, but the songs somehow don't sound too similar to eachother. His piano/organ songs are often a bit more complex, but they're not that advanced. It's the sort of thing where you know the song is fantastic if it sounds good in the recording quality, with the equipment, and in the unpolished nature it's presented in here.

  15. Fire Nation

    He's the king of my castle

  16. Dias Luan

    R.I.P Daniel

  18. Daniel Esposito

    Daniel very rarely had happy moments. This is one of those rare moments. Thank god it was filmed.

  19. W Str

    Is this song on any of his albums?

  20. YQN

    What a title

  21. Dennis Hare

    He somehow reminds me of Dylan.

  22. Brent Levingston

    I really don’t understand his appeal, but he seems to have meant a lot to a lot of people. RIP

    Jon Banks

    It's because listening to Daniel Johnston is like hearing your own broken childhood stand up and sing. It's beautifully heartbreaking.

  23. boliverfilms

    My God we lost someone so special. RIP Daniel. Like Picasso, all the world will know your art and your name. Anyone who hasn't seen this, should...


  24. ting ting

    no one actually likes this shit


    Nah, we do

  25. Don Furcio

    sounds like the violent femmes with no rhythm

    This is dark.

  36. Hey Dana Music

    I was only familiar with "True Love Will Find You In The End" through different artists covers before his passing. Then I found this and watched "The Devil and Daniel Johnson." F'king unbelievable life and talented songwriter. This song definitely hooked me though so I had to do my own cover: https://youtu.be/TX6Ng0tUjk8

  37. Corey Marr

    Miss you bud

  38. Matthew Zediker

    one of the best two minutes of songwriting you could ever hear... RIP

  39. Jennifer Barksdale

    Raw talent

    ting ting

    raw sewage

  40. Cable Vamp

    Just imagine yourself you know

    A little lost, a little confident, a little anxious, thinking if it’s a good or bad idea, talking to yourself in a battle then going on stage to fight all those at the same time while retaining some chord structure and sing in front of people you don’t know and you barely know yourself but you know you love music and art

    That was Daniel Johnston, such an inspirational human

  41. Hi I'm Mausckat

    We will miss you, Daniel

  42. Tim Boldt
