"Everlasting Love" as written by and Daniel Johnston....
I had a welcome mat
But you never came around
I left my light on
But you were nowhere to be found
I thought an afterthought
That maybe I was forgotten
You never asked me for my name
But I wasn't even in the book

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
We fell in love so deeply
An everlasting kind of love
And love was on our side
There was no place to hide
It seemed to mean so much
An everlasting kind of love

Years ago, I was at your door
Asking you for directions
You said you loved another
And I wasn't even mentioned
As I play piano, I get this eerie feeling
You were never really there
I guess I must be dreaming

Seems how I really tried
But our love was denied
Somehow it was a lie
An everlasting kind of love
Then you took me for a ride
I was so hurt inside
You smiled and then you cried
An everlasting kind of love

Mom and dad said I sure was lost
Since all the time they're believing
Just what is difference
In my heart I'm always there
How can you in the art room
You said you had to go
I took it out on a shopping cart
Screaming in my mind, "It isn't so!"

Guess that's the way it goes
You seemed to love, I suppose
But I was at the end of my rope
An everlasting kind of love
I can't tell you how I loved
With shining stars above
With no ill thoughts about you
An everlasting kind of love

I took a walk, I was so in love
But I had nowhere to go
Everywhere I looked, I'd swear
I saw you in every window
Till I died inside from being all alone
Your love carried me on
I just kept on dreaming of your love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
What could we have done to save
An everlasting kind of love
And love was on our side
It seemed to mean so much
Shouldn't have lost touch
An everlasting kind of love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
We fell in love so deeply
An everlasting kind of love
Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
What could we have done to save
An everlasting kind of love
