Johnston, Daniel - I Lose Lyrics




She invited me to a pity party
Every hour everyone was making fun of me
I told her it really didn't matter
You can't imagine what it's done to my personality
I don't know where she should go, but I lose
Though I tried, like a lullaby, I lose
Once I saw her in a crazy dream
She was laughing, I looked the other way
Then I find that she unwinds, she puts me down behind my back
Everyone seems to have a love but me, it's what I lack
I've been denied the hurt inside, I lose
Though she was barely a friend of mine, I lose
I got left out of the "in" crowd
They speak as if I was there
They say the cruelest things, I seen their type
A bunch of buttwipes that rule
Don't make sense, it's really strange, I lose
Though I try, there's no sense giving up, I lose
I walk the second mile, there's no one there, I lose
I pick up the pieces of my broken dream, I lose
Everyone had their fun, I lose
Yet she was a one of them from the beginning
How am I to carry on, there's no help given
Then I realize it's all recurrence
What they're thinking, their mind is a blur
I seen the future, and I ain't even there, I lose
I see it all, and it's really, the same old thing, I lose
They think they're smart, all huddled together, I lose
One more time, I try to make it, I lose
I lose, I lose
Tell me about it, darlin', now

  10. Rulo Mileg

    Ella me invitó a una fiesta de lástima
    Cada hora todos se burlaban de mí
    Le dije que realmente no importaba
    No te puedes imaginar lo que se hace con mi personalidad
    No sé a dónde debería ir, pero pierdo
    Aunque lo intenté, como una canción de cuna, pierdo
    Una vez que la vi en un sueño loco
    Ella se estaba riendo, miré hacia otro lado
    Luego descubro que ella se relaja, me pone detrás de mi espalda
    Todos parecen tener un amor pero yo, es lo que me falta
    Me han negado el dolor por dentro, pierdo
    Aunque ella apenas era una amiga mía, pierdo
    Me quedé fuera de la multitud "en"
    Hablan como si estuviera allí
    Dicen las cosas más crueles, he visto su tipo
    Un montón de buttwipes que dominan
    No tiene sentido, es realmente extraño, pierdo
    Aunque lo intento, no tiene sentido darse por vencido, pierdo
    Camino la segunda milla, no hay nadie allí, pierdo
    Recojo las piezas de mi sueño roto, pierdo
    Todo el mundo se divirtió, pierdo
    Sin embargo, ella era una de ellas desde el principio
    Cómo voy a continuar, no hay ayuda dada
    Entonces me doy cuenta de que todo vuelve a ocurrir
    Lo que están pensando, su mente es un borrón
    Vi el futuro, y ni siquiera estoy allí, pierdo
    Lo veo todo, y es realmente, lo mismo de siempre, pierdo
    Ellos piensan que son inteligentes, todos amontonados, pierdo
    Una vez más, intento hacerlo, pierdo
    Pierdo, pierdo
    Cuéntame sobre eso, cariño, ahora

    She invited me to a pity party
    Every hour everyone was making fun of me
    I told her it really didn’t matter
    You can’t imagine what it’s done to my personality
    I don’t know where she should go, but I lose
    Though I tried, like a lullaby, I lose
    Once I saw her in a crazy dream
    She was laughing, I looked the other way
    Then I find that she unwinds, she puts me down behind my back
    Everyone seems to have a love but me, it’s what I lack
    I’ve been denied the hurt inside, I lose
    Though she was barely a friend of mine, I lose
    I got left out of the “in” crowd

    They say the cruelest things, I seen their type
    A bunch of buttwipes that rule
    Don’t make sense, it’s really strange, I lose
    Though I try, there’s no sense giving up, I lose
    I walk the second mile, there’s no one there, I lose
    I pick up the pieces of my broken dream, I lose

    I lose, I lose

    Wow...There's so much pure sincerity in there, it overshadows the apparent pain, and what's left is mostly dignity. That's what this song makes me feel. A very talented artist, I think I understand why he is mentally deranged - he believes a little too strongly in his feelings, and forgets to come back from there to put some logic. Listen to "speeding motorcycle", he says it clearly.

  13. TRUEiMPROrecords

    "A bunch of buttwipes that rule" love

  14. resonantfrequency7125

    Once again, Danny tells us the truth. Thanks, Danny!

    V. Dargain

    KM4ZCU LOL . Maybe 2017 will be a better year for him .

  15. Greg Kozak

    This guy is astounding.  Why don't more people know about him?  I stand in awe at his creativity, his originality, his insight, and his understanding of life.  Superb!

    Dddd dd

    Greg Kozak Kurt cobain loved him, flea and red hot chili peppers know him, beck covered his songs, wilco a bunch of other in my opinion inferior acts, I love beck but he is one of the only one who's covered his songs I like, I still think Daniel johnstons better. Tom waits did a cover, Pearl Jam. I know what you mean, he should be as famous as beck or Pearl Jam, but at least he got recognition from many great musicians and even not so great. Plus he has a great fan base of nice people, sadly he's not doing well at the moment but hopefully he'll pull through

    frankenschline1

    I really liked Built to Spills cover of Somethings last a long time. although sometimes you can never be better than the original.

  16. V. Dargain

    Hey dude . Get your piano tuned ! It sounds like a bigger loser than you are .

    V. Dargain

    Liz King Hey . What do yor ears hear on the video ? My pathetic ears hear an out of tune spinet piano . A definite LOSER in my book , especially if you're trying to entertain others .

    Dddd dd

    V. Dargain yeah but that's because you're retarded, that's ok, Daniel has mental issues, you just have them which affects you're intellect

  52. mannyv

    @BipolarBowler haha "in loo"! made my day man

  53. BipolarBowler

    @platypusmessiah Haha, sounds like someone is holding on to a wee bit of resentment towards religion. You instruct me then. What would be the better advice? In loo of my own perception,

    I try to leave a nice comment and you take a dump on it, I LOSE!!

    haha, you aren't helping much with this "injustice" you speak of now are you? I know this all might upset yer pride, but it will avail you nothing anyways. Daniel Johnston himself was/is quite religious. Take a listen to "Careless Soul."

  54. Travis D

    Don't worry about injustice. Just find some imaginary religion to explain everything. Real nice advice man.

  55. BipolarBowler

    What are you gonna win if don't lose anyways? All is transient and impermanent, even those lips you sing with. WE ALL LOSE.

    : )

    Really, they lose by not seeing yer dance'n lil' spirit. Don't play the "poor me, lucky them" game. Suffer'n abounds everywhere, so find some religion, some release from this world!

  56. dylanfan1969

    What album is this off of? This song is amazing.

  57. VikkiEatsPie

    I lost the Game
