Johnston, Daniel - The Monster Inside Of Me Lyrics




Every time you look at me
You see the monster in my eye
If you could only help me girl
We could be in paradise

Be happy every after
And there would be no more tears
Eternal peace is what I'm after
Maybe girl, you could help me understand
The monster inside of me

You know that I want you
You can see that I need you
But you hate the monster
Well honey, I do too

I need your love to carry me
Out of the darkness of the pit
You know I feel just like shit
Maybe girl, you could help me fight
The monster inside of me

Maybe if someone had said to Vincent Van Gogh
"Keep punching, Joe!"
Maybe he'd be here today
Maybe he'd be here today

You inspire the strength within
And I can be conqueror
As my spirit rise above us
Maybe girl, you could help me destroy
The monster inside of me

And we could be happy
And we could be happy
And we could be happy
And we could be happy

Johnston, Daniel The Monster Inside Of Me Comments
  1. dailyflash

    I saw him perform in L.A. around 2012. The meds he took put a lot of weight on him, and gave him a tremor in one of his arms. He needed to read his lyrics off of a music stand, and he guzzled a lot of water between songs.


    Honestly, musically, he was wobbly. But I have never been to a show like this before. The entire audience was rooting for him, ignoring any mistakes, encouraging him, pouring love out to him. It was amazing. I don't know how to explain it well, but I backed out of the audience and saw that not only were they all crowded toward the stage, like most shows. It was like the audience was leaning in towards, keeping him afloat. The songs were great, but he must have sung True Love Will Find You in The End a thousand times. The magic was in the love.

    Every time you look at me
    You see the monster in my eye
    If you could only help me girl
    We could be in paradise

    Be happy every after
    And there would be no more tears
    Eternal peace is what I'm after
    Maybe girl, you could help me understand
    The monster inside of me

    You know that I want you
    You can see that I need you
    But you hate the monster
    Well honey, I do too.

    I need your love to carry me
    Out of the darkness of the pit
    You know I feel just like shit
    Maybe girl, you could help me fight
    The monster inside of me

    Maybe if someone had said to Vincent Van Gogh
    "Keep punching, Joe!"
    Maybe he'd be here today.
    Maybe he'd be here today.

    You inspire the strength within
    And I can be conquerer
    As my spirit rise above us
    Maybe girl, you could help me destroy
    The monster inside of me

    And we could be happy
    And we could be happy
    And we could be happy
    And we could be happy
