Life In Vain
Daniel Johnston
FUN (1994), Frankenstein Love (1998)

Don't want to be free of hope
And I'm at the end of my rope
It's so tough just to be alive
When I feel like the living dead
I'm giving it up so plain
I'm living my life in vain
And where am I going to?
I got to really try
Try so hard to get by
And where am I going to?

I don't know where is up or down
And there ain't any love left around
Everybody wearin' a frown
Waiting for Santa to come to town
You're giving it up so plain
You're living your lives in vain
And where are you going to?
You've got to really try
Try so hard to get by
And where are you going to?

Flip on your TV
And try to make sense out of that
If we were all in the movies
Maybe we wouldn't be so bored
We're giving it up so plain
We're living our lives in vain
And where are we going to?
You gotta really try
Try so hard to get by
And where are you going to?

Goodbye, goodbye

========================================

Life In Vain
CHORDS - thanks to Brett Hartenbach

 

Intro: Pick the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st strings in a 3-2-1-2-3-2-1-2 pattern off of a D2 chord position (*chord position: xx0230-do not play the D [4th string] in this picking pattern).  Then repeat the pattern by adding the suspended 4 to the chord (chord position: xx0233-do not play the D [4th string] in this picking pattern).
