Daniel Johnston - Wish lyrics

I'll never be happy, I wish that I would
Unless you can love me, if only you could
I used to be lonely, knock on wood
What do you think of me? It's understood
And now I wander all my life just to get by

The tears flow like wine
And now I find you're so far away
And I love you
Love you

Apart from Jesus, I find new hope
I seek salvation in a bar of soap
To wash away my sins before I go
And make a new day, say 'Hey, I can cope'
I've always been lonely, 'Till I met her

Making me shine, all the time
Her love was mine
And I love her
Love her

If you were just for me, that would be good
I'd be really happy, I wish that I could
I used to be lonely, knock on wood
I wish that you'd love me, I misunderstood
I just can't get by, you were a high

You were so lovely, I really believed
Now you're so far away
I still love you
Love you
