My Mom Told Me That All My Songs Were Sad

from by Joshua Stephens



I'm not Daniel Johnston, and I don't think that I could be
Quite as clever or as ill, or ever half the man as he
But I still have brought a song to sing and I hope that it brings
A smile to your face, and when you leave tonight, I hope you still like me
I hope you still like me

Maybe Daniel was right, and dying's how we get respect
But I don't think that I'm quite ready to quit breathing just yet
Although my mom told me that all my songs were sad and made her cry
But if we sing them all together, even if we cry, honey maybe we'll still smile
And I hope you still like me
