"A Lonely Song" as written by and Daniel Dale Johnston....
Well, you heard about the time
I climbed the Empire State Building
And you heard about the time
I was in the insane asylum

But I bet you never knew
What I had to do
And what I went through
Just to bring you a lonely song

Well, I try to do what's right
Every day and every night
And when I think I've won the fight
The monster comes back again

And I bet you never knew
What I went through
And what I had to do
Just to bring you a lonely song

If you listen very hard
You can hear the desperation of a sad and broken heart
My heart

Well, you heard about the time
But not all of it is true
And you've read the magazines
I've been wounded by folklore

But I bet you never knew
What I went through
And what I had to do
Just to bring you a lonely song

Well, I'll tell you right now
Just to set the record straight
I never meant no harm
Or to generate so much hate

But I bet you never knew
What I went through
And what I had to do
Just to bring you a lonely song
