Johnston, Daniel - Girl Of My Dreams Lyrics




Memories like leaves are fallin'
On the ground and soon to be forgotten
We had it all for about a long time
But the long time is far gone

And the yesterdays have all faded away
Yes, the yesterdays have all faded away

Seems like not so long ago
I kissed you on that Holy Night
You seemed to like it
You said there'd be trouble
I really did love you
Only because
You were the girl of my dreams
Girl of my dreams

I had you in there in eternity
Just you and me just like it was
I know for sure you really did love me
But then again, you acted bothered
She had a split personality
She loved me, and she hated me

Must be some sort of mysterious love affair
The monster and the girl
Then one night when it was really over
I told her that I really loved her

She acted surprised and said
"That's all right"
She was the girl of my dreams
Girl of my dreams

And all along you knew my secret
I was after love and pretty much desperate
I kissed you once, and I was changed for life
It was paradise, yes, and that's what I like

You were my love
Somewhat
If only I could touch

But once again, I remind you
My love was strong, and only for you
My only wish is that you love me true
You really must get in touch with me soon
You were my Virgin Queen of Rock 'N' Roll

You were the girl of my dreams
Girl of my dreams

  3. Gustavo Padrón-Rivera

    Tuve la oportunidad de verlo en Xalapa, México; hace años, pero él ya estaba muy viejito y era muy difícil que cantara bien, pero aún así lo intentó.

  4. Jesús G. R.

    man. rest in peace. may your legacy life forever. thank you, wherever you are, DJ.

    Skelth_ orist

    A great man had to pass once again for fate to quench it's inevitable momentary thirst spouts.

  5. John Doe

    RIP

    Nothing speaks like the truth, if it can stay in tune all the better. He accomplished this & more.. rest well, good prince

  6. AhYaOkRgT

    big lipped one eyed dragons

  7. michael scaglione

    He has nothing to lose or to hide. Honest true emotions..
    He stirs up so much in human people.. because there's social Impossibilities trained in them. Daniel johnston couldn't care about social rules and training..even if he wanted to.

  38. BrandonScott RobinsonMusic

    Hello people,
    I know this is sort of advertising but i don't really know how to get music out on the internet. My two favorite artists are Daniel Johnston and The Beatles. I'm a young song writer who gets a lot of inspiration from the two and have songs on my youtube channel that i would like to say are daniel johnston esque but i can't compare. If you could give me songs "caving in" "walk away" and "grey sky falling" a listen and a comment i would love! they're on my channel.

  39. Toofah5

    oh ok. sorry. no clue.

  40. animatiz

    The song that would come after girl of my dreams on the album.

  41. Toofah5

    First, what the hell does "In alignment with" mean?

  42. animatiz

  43. Toofah5

  44. Toofah5
