Johnston, Daniel - Laurie Lyrics




Once I saw the most beautiful girl
Sitting next to me
I asked her what was her name
She said it was 'Laurie'

She worked at the store and I opened that door
Just to see her face
She always made me feel at home
I never felt out of place

But she already had a boyfriend
An undertaker was he
And they got married
And had a little baby

I became obsessed with death, my friend
Certain that it would happen to me
And I would be in the hands
Of my dear Laurie

I can't explain such love aflame
I overcame victorious
Filled my heart with such desire
So grand and so glorious

Laurie, sweet, an angel dear
Is here with me today
Not a person, but a memory
With me will always stay

  11. Marcela Veloso Chacón

    Que hermosa la letra ❤️

  12. Marcela Veloso Chacón

    Que linda canción de amor me encanta ,la
    de un amor inocente, ingenuo se nota, de una simpleza,ternura única, se siente la tristeza de Daniel en su voz que lástima que la tal Laurie no lo haya valorado y no lo tomara en serio ante tal declaración pura y hermosa de amor en sus canciones que él le dedicó se lo perdió por burra, hay mujeres que no valoran nada de estas muestras de amor verdadero y puro porque no nacieron para ello nacieron para otro tipo de hombres y placeres más mundanos... Soy del mismo club Daniel Johnston afortunadamente 😊 ❤️ y con razón le gustaba a otros artistas sensibles como Kurt Cobain

    Aries

    As visto la pelicula de daniel?
    En la pelicula platican de ella y lo que Paso con los dos. Pobre hombre como sufrio de la cabesa. Sus cansionos me encantan.

    Nesty

    Ellos se encuentran despues de 20 y pico de años y cuando la vio se fue corriendo y nadie lo encontraba pero al final lo encontroraon y se abrazaron

  13. Giovani Rodriguez

    3 people accidentally pressed the unlike button

    Nesty

    Lets give em the benefit of doubt and think they had tears in their eyes

    inglés

    Una vez vi a la chica más hermosa

    Sentado a mi lado

    Le pregunté cuál era su nombre

    Ella dijo que era "Laurie"

    Trabajaba en la tienda y abrí esa puerta

    Sólo para ver su cara

    Ella siempre me hizo sentir como en casa

    Nunca me sentí fuera de lugar

    Pero ella ya tenía un novio

    Un funerario era él

    Y se casaron

    Y tenía un bebé pequeño

    Me obsesioné con la muerte, amigo mío

    Seguro que me pasaría a mí

    Y estaría en las manos

    De mi querida Laurie

    No puedo explicar ese amor en llamas

    Yo venciendo victorioso

    Llené mi corazón con tal deseo

    Tan grandioso y glorioso

    Laurie, dulce, un ángel cariño

    Está aquí conmigo hoy

    No es una persona, sino un recuerdo

    Conmigo siempre se queda

    Carlos García Jiménez

    Gracias por traducir mi himno

  17. Uno más del Patriarcado

    I love he's music, should be even more popular...

  18. jkjkjkish

    totally! but they're both great

  19. Lrpesme48

    my name is Laurie and I work in a store. Life is good...

    Laurie Parrish

    Lrpesme48 my name is Laurie too, and I also work in a store. What's really ironic is my husband is Danny.

  20. Greg V

    Funny how he'd already written like 200 songs about her before he wrote this one...
    wonder if he considers it the definitive ode to "the love of his life".

  21. Barrel Shape

    Anybody else think Neutral Milk Hotel picked up a few tricks from this guy, and more specifically this song?

    david pac

    I told my wife that he sounds like atom and his package meets neutral milk hotel meets jandek

  22. Rodrigo Ramírez

    Maravilloso!

  23. Milambit

    This song is beautiful, but it reminds me Frosty the Snow Man. Best damn "Frosty The Snowman Theme" I ever heard though.

  24. Terry J

    @SignoreAlan no you

  25. dables

    you're just a head, just a pothead. I wonder if you realize you forgot to brush your teeth!

  26. MannerMule

    love the second verse so much

  27. Lukas Martin

    Great artist. Great song. Daniel is a huge inspiration for me. Thanks for this version, never heard it before.

  28. Jacob Arnold.

    I wish that I could write songs even half as beautiful and catchy as this. Daniel Johnston is absolutely genius.

  29. abox112

    that it is.
