Daniel Johnston - Museum Of Love Lyrics




Gone with the wild wind
Like it was a dream
Preserved now for all to see
Like nothing you've ever seen

Right this way
To the Museum of Love
Right this way
You've got to see 'em
It's love love love

This is right here where he stood
When he wrote those sacred words
And he made a holy vow
And these are the drawings and his library card
And this is the cow

See it all
In the Hall of Sadness
Please don't miss
The Exhibit of Madness

As legend would have it
He had this nasty habit
Of a longing that was wronging himself
But still he would persist
In fact he would insist
That there was nothing nobody could do to help
He really loved her
He really did

And his love went 'round and 'round
And though he tried to keep it hid
He had lost what he had found
He had lost what he had found
Now all this pain preserved for all to observe

But please don't touch
It's an inspiration to think or try to believe
That someone could love someone that much
So now we declare a new holiday for lovers everywhere
For each and every one to have their own share
He would have liked it that way

Right this way
To the Museum of Love
Right this way
You've got to see 'em
It's love love love

  7. John Fair

    I knew Danny as a teenager. I remember the toy he used for the duck. He was a great friend to have.

  8. kyle carson

    here i figured out Dan was a genius is this came on a random and my Nease who was 2 stopped playing and stared at the computer quietly

  9. Obi-Wan Kenobi

    We as a society should all agree that, if you know of Daniel Johnston and enjoy what he does, you are obliged if you meet him to say "Hello Mr. Lennon. It's nice to see you out and about."

  10. souldiezel

    my favorite song from daniel johnston

  11. grant cummins

    large fry please

  12. Froebs

    "He had lost what he had fou...ouuuunndd" I love hearing the superbly integrated Beatles influences in these songs. There are too many to count, but that's my favorite in this one.

  13. nick fury

    nirvana brought me here ,fyi I thought kurt drew that shirt himself but now I know better,too bad the meat puppets was on unplugged instead of danny boy

  14. wuxihonco

    To misquote Ivan Chtcheglov "The Museum of Love must be built!"

  15. MrTheTonypp

    why o why did he not get a record deal i must watch the documentary soon!!

  16. BigMooseSoCal

    Vitamin Water comes to mind...

  17. Aaron Binder

    Yip Jump all day.

  18. Adam Joy

    I got in this intense fight with my family and friends once. I was incredibly depressed. i got into my car, popped my daniel johnston cd in my car, and drove. this song came on and i literally cried my eyes out. but it was probably the most beautiful feeling in the world. i cant really describe it too well! DJ's music always touches me in the weirdest way.

  19. bunglebonce

    Like all of Daniel Johnston's songs but to recommend some other songs I'd say: Cosmic Kid, Go, True Love Will Find You in The End, Casper The Friendly Ghost, Devil Town.....etc.......go and check them out.

  20. goodleshoes

    If Daniel were in the Beatles.... holy crap.

    Buggle Magnum

    goodleshoes stfuuuu

    Sid Arthur

    rejected unknown

  21. Kpatt86

    this is one of the best songs ever.

  22. Aaron Helbert

    my favorite artist period. I wouldnt have the balls to say it to his face (because i would hate to upset him), but i think he is WAY better than the Beatles... and i LOVE the Beatles :O)

  23. Simba P

    love how in the picture hes holding the rubber soul album
    hes a great person
    and such an innocent voice and songs

  24. Knave504

    This is one of my top favs from Daniel "Godsent" Johnston.. I think its up there with "Bloody Rainbow", "Hate Song", and "I Saw Her Standing There".

    In an interview, he said he wish he got more fanmail, but was sad he couldn't write back. I think everyone should send him a letter and a drawing of how you feel... He said he puts the drawings on his wall.

  25. Cemetarys Neighbor

    wtf i'm so addicted to his stuff
    such a great songwriter musican and aritst

  26. Timothy Wyatt

    I have all of his albums actually. Yip Jump Music is probably my fav.

  27. Timothy Wyatt

    I agree.

  28. Timothy Wyatt

    I have been obsessing on this song for months.

    It's incredible. I'm obsessed with Yip Jump Music.

  29. Cemetarys Neighbor

    i love you daniel

  30. DieAerzteFreak17175

  31. Cemetarys Neighbor

  32. Ramsey Bryan

  33. itsmetyler
