“A sad loss to the music world today. Never saw him play live but I remember hearing about his impromptu gig at ATP festival in the UK and the simple pure catchiness of his songs. ”

Lyrics for True Love Will Find You In The End by Daniel Johnston:

Verse 1
True love will find you in the end
You'll find out just who was your friend
Don’t be sad, I know you will
But don’t give up until
True love will find you in the end

Verse 2
This is a promise with a catch
Only if you're looking can it find you
‘Cause true love is searching too
But how can it recognize you
Unless you step out into the light, the light
Don’t be sad, I know you will
But don’t give up until
True love will find you in the end

Song Facts

While to some critics Johnston’s childish voice and informal musicianship solidifies his status as a naïve outsider, he holds a deep capacity for displaying honest, vulnerable, and humorously tragic lyrics aligned with implied melodies and uniquely-structured songs. Perhaps no other song in his catalogue highlights his strengths as a songwriter better than “True Love Will Find You in the End.”

Despite stretching only a little less than 2 minutes and employing only one instrument, “True Love Will Find You in the End” is arguably one of Johnston’s better known songs, with over 5,000,000 plays on Spotify.

In the long-standing tradition of insider musicians covering the outsider legend ( ala Pearl Jam, Yo La Tengo, and Tom Waits ), Beck performs a more polished rendition of the song here:
