(Rest in peace, Dan...)

Dan Fogelberg

Same Old Lang Syne

Met my old lover in the grocery store

The snow was falling Christmas eve

I stole behind her in the frozen foods

And I touched her on the sleeve

She didn't recognize the face at first

But then her eyes flew open wide

She went to hug me and she spilled her purse

And we laughed until we cried

We took her groceries to the checkout stand

The food was totaled up and bagged

We stood there lost in our embarrassment

As the conversation dragged

We went to have ourselves a drink or two

But couldn't find an open bar

We bought a six-pack at the liquor store

And we drank it in her car

We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to now

And tried to reach beyond the emptiness but neither one knew how

She said she'd married her an architect

Who kept her warm and safe and dry

She would have liked to say she loved the man

But she didn't like to lie

I said the years had been a friend to her

And that her eyes were still as blue

But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I saw doubt or gratitude

She said she saw me in the record stores

And that I must be doing well

I said the audience was heavenly but the traveling was hell

We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to now

And tried to reach beyond the emptiness but neither one knew how

We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to time

Reliving in our eloquence, another auld lang syne

The beer was empty and our tongues were tired

Running out of things to say

She gave a kiss to me as I got out

And I watched her drive away

Just for a moment I was back at school

And felt that old familiar pain

And as I turned to make my way back home

The snow turned in to rain

I heard this song the other night when I was up talking to Nay. I love the lyrics so much.:heart:

"Waiting On The Weeds"-Eagles

It's comin' on the end of August

Another summer's promise almost gone

And though I heard some wise man say

That every dog will have his day

He never mentioned that these dog days get so long

I don't know when I realized the dream was over

Well, there was no particular hour, no given day

You know, it didn't go down in flame

There was no final scene, no frozen frame

I just watched it slowly fade away

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for my time to come around again and

Hope is floating on the breeze

Carrying my soul high up above the ground and

I've been keepin' to myself

Knowin' that the seasons are slowly changing

Even though you're with somebody else

He'll never love you like I do

I've been biding time with the crows and sparrows

While peacocks prance and strut upon the stage

If finding love is just a dance

Proximity and chance

You will excuse me if I skip the masquerade

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for the dust to settle down along the

Back roads running through the fields

Lying on the outskirts of this lonesome town

And I imagine sunlight in your hair

You're at the county fair

You're holding hands and laughing

And now the ferris wheel has stopped

You're swinging on the top

Suspended there with him

And he's the darling of the sheik

The flavor of the week is melting

Down your pretty summer dress

Baby, what a mess you're making

I've been stumbling through some dark places

Now I'm following the plow

I know I've fallen out of your good graces

It's alright now

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for the summer rain to fall upon the

Wild birds scattering the seeds

Answering the calling of the tide's eternal tune

The phases of the moon

The chambers of the heart

The ebb and dart of small gray

Spiders spinning in the dark

In spite of all the times the web is torn apart

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for the time to come around again and

Hope is floating on the breeze

Carrying my soul high up above the ground and

I've been keepinl to myself

Knowing that the seasons are slowly changing

Even though you're with somebody else

He'll never love you like I do

I Love This song So much. i can't stop listening to it.

Heartbreaker - The Rolling Stones

The police in new york city

They chased a boy right through the park

And in a case of mistaken identity

The put a bullet through his heart

Heart breakers with your 44.

I wanna tear your world apart

You heart breaker with your forty four

I wanna tear your world a part

A ten year old girl on a street corner

Sticking needles in her arm

She died in the dirt of an alleyway

Her mother said she had no chance, no chance!

Heart breaker, heart breaker

She stuck the pins right in her heart

Heart breaker, pain maker

Stole the love right out of you heart

Heart breaker, heart breaker

You stole the love right out of my heart

Heart breaker, heart breaker

I wanna tear your world apart

Doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo....

(heard this for the very first time last night and was intrigued by the writer's sense of exquisite melancholy...)

Why Don't You Quit Leaving Me Alone

(sung by Rosanne Cash, but written by the Heartbreakers' own B.M. Tench III)

Surely you remember

This old resort hotel

It's pink and white all over

And historical as hell

Scott and Zelda stayed here

And you and me as well

At least that's how the story goes

The porters like to tell

A cold hard rain comes pouring down

It wasn't like this last time around

There's no calm center to this storm

Oh baby

Why don't you quit leaving me alone

There's nothing on the tv

No message on the phone

And nothing but an awful lot

Of nothing going on

And every radio station

Has the same forsaken song

You think I would have had the sense

To leave this place alone

Some dreams die with dignity

They fade out clean and quietly

Some won't let you let 'em go

Oh baby

Why don't you quit leaving me alone

Same old corner bedroom

Seven stories up

That overlooks the window

That overlooks the gulf

And the same old sleazy porter

With the after-hours stuff

I think I'll kick the walls around

And beat myself up

Some dreams die with dignity

They fade out clean and quietly

Some won't let you let 'em go

Oh baby

Why don't you quit leaving me

A cold hard rain comes pouring down

It wasn't like this last time around

There's no calm center to this storm

Oh baby

Why don't you quit leaving me alone

I watch John Denver's Christmas Montana Skies every Christmas. I love this song that Patty Loveless sings....I am not sure who wrote it but it is beautiful and touches my heart this season...

Feelings of Love

I leave you with something

You can't understand

You can't buy or sell it

Or hold it in your hands

It's greater than this world of ours

Or the heavens above

I leave you with feelings of love

It's as free as the wild wind

As gentle as a lamb

It fills the angels with envy

It's givin' free to man

Gives courage to the lion

Peace to the dove

I leave you with feelings of love

Feelings of love

Are what make my love real

Feelings of love

Are the best things to feel

You gave it to me freely

Now I leave it with you

I leave you my feelings of love

It gives man to a woman

Gives a woman to her man

It makes friends out of enemy's

It makes our hearts join hands

You gave it to me freely

Now I leave it with you

I leave you my feelings of love

What a beautiful song this is..

Boulder to Birmingham

Emmylou Harris

I don't want to hear a love song

I got on this airplane just to fly

And I know there's life below

But all that it can show me

Is the prairie and the sky

And I don't want to hear a sad story

Full of heartbreak and desire

The last time I felt like this

It was in the wilderness and the canyon was on fire

And I stood on the mountain in the night and I watched it burn

I watched it burn, I watched it burn.

I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham

I would hold my life in his saving grace.

I would walk all the way from Boulder to Birmingham

If I thought I could see, I could see your face.

Well you really got me this time

And the hardest part is knowing I'll survive.

I have come to listen for the sound

Of the trucks as they move down

Out on ninety five

And pretend that it's the ocean

coming down to wash me clean, to wash me clean

Baby do you know what I mean

I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham

I would hold my life in his saving grace.

I would walk all the way from Boulder to Birmingham

If I thought I could see, I could see your face.

Vincent - Don McLean

Starry

starry night

paint your palette blue and grey

look out on a summer's day

with eyes that know the

darkness in my soul.

Shadows on the hills

sketch the trees and the daffodils

catch the breeze and the winter chills

in colors on the snowy linen land.

And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity

how you tried to set them free.

They would not listen

they did not know how

perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry

starry night

flaming flo'rs that brightly blaze

swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in

Vincent's eyes of China blue.

Colors changing hue

morning fields of amber grain

weathered faces lined in pain

are soothed beneath the artist's

loving hand.

And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity

how you tried to set them free.

perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you

but still your love was true

and when no hope was left in sight on that starry

starry night.

You took your life

as lovers often do;

But I could have told you

Vincent

this world was never

meant for one

as beautiful as you.

Starry

starry night

portraits hung in empty halls

frameless heads on nameless walls

with eyes

that watch the world and can't forget.

Like the stranger that you've met

the ragged men in ragged clothes

the silver thorn of bloddy rose

lie crushed and broken

on the virgin snow.

And now I think I know what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity

how you tried to set them free.

They would not listen

they're not

list'ning still

perhaps they never will.

You'll Think Of Me

Keith Urban

I woke up early this morning around 4am

With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate

I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep

But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake

Ever since you found yourself in someone else's arms

I've been tryin' my best to get along

But that's OK

There's nothing left to say, but

Take your records, take your freedom

Take your memories I don't need'em

Take your space and take your reasons

But you'll think of me

And take your cat and leave my sweater

'Cause we have nothing left to weather

In fact I'll feel a whole lot better

But you'll think of me, you'll think of me

I went out driving trying to clear my head

I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left

I guess I'm feeling just a little tired of this

And all the baggage that seems to still exist

It seems the only blessing I have left to my name

Is not knowing what we could have been

What we should have been

So

Take your records, take your freedom

Take your memories I don't need'em

Take your space and take your reasons

But you'll think of me

And take your cat and leave my sweater

'Cause we have nothing left to weather

In fact I'll feel a whole lot better

But you'll think of me

Someday I'm gonna run across your mind

Don't worry, I'll be fine

I'm gonna be alright

While you're sleeping with your pride

Wishing I could hold you tight

I'll be over you

And on with my life

So take your records, take your freedom

Take your memories I don't need'em

And take your cat and leave my sweater

'Cause we have nothing left to weather

In fact I'll feel a whole lot better

But you'll think of me

So take your records, take your freedom

Take your memories I don't need'em

Take your space and all your reasons

But you'll think of me

And take your cat and leave my sweater

'Cause we got nothing left to weather

In fact I'll feel a whole lot better

But you'll think of me, you'll think of me, yeah

And you're gonna think of me

Oh someday baby, so

A Very old English song .Art Garfunkel sang it on his Angel Clare album , I`ve always loved it

Barbara Allen

In Scarlet town where I was born

There was a fair maid dwelling

And every youth cried well away

For her name was Barbara Allen

Twas in the merry month of May

The green buds were a swelling

Sweet William on his deathbed lay

For the love of Barbara Allen

He sent a servant unto her

To the place she was dwelling

Saying you must come to his deathbed now

If your name be Barbara Allen

Slowly slowly she got up

Slowly slowly she came nigh him

And the only words to him she said

Young man I think you're dying

As she was walking oer the fields

She heard the death bell knelling

And every stroke it seemed to say

Hardhearted Barbara Allen

Oh mother mother make my bed

Make it long and make it narrow

Sweet William died for me today

I'll die for him tomorrow

They buried her in the old churchyard

They buried him in the choir

And from his grave grew a red red rose

From her grave a green briar

They grew and grew to the steeple top

Till they could grow no higher

And there they twined in a true love's knot

Red rose around green briar

Queensryche - Silent Lucidity

Hush now, don't you cry

Wipe away the teardrop from your eye

You're lying safe in bed

It was all a bad dream

Spinning in your head

Your mind tricked you to feel the pain

Of someone close to you leaving the game of life

So here it is, another chance

Wide awake you face the day

Your dream is over... or has it just begun?

There's a place I like to hide

A doorway that I run through in the night

Relax child, you were there

But only didn't realize it and you were scared

It's a place where you will learn

To face your fears, retrace the years

And ride the whims of your mind

Commanding in another world

Suddenly you hear and see

This magic new dimension

I- will be watching over you

I- am gonna help you see it through

I- will protect you in the night

I- am smiling next to you, in Silent Lucidity

[spoken during solo]

(Visualize your dream)

(Record it in the present tense)

(Put it into a permanent form)

(If you persist in your efforts)

(You can achieve dream control)

(Dream control)

(How's that then, better?)

(Hug me)

If you open your mind for me

You won't rely on open eyes to see

The walls you built within

Come tumbling down, and a new world will begin

Living twice at once you learn

You're safe from the pain in the dream domain

A soul set free to fly

A round trip journey in your head

Master of illusion, can you realize

Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but...

I- will be watching over you

I- am gonna help to see it through

I- will protect you in the night

I- am smiling next to you....

Smile - by David Gilmour

Would this do

To make it all right

While sleep has taken you

Where I'm out of sight

I'll make my getaway

Time on my own

Search for a better way

To find my way home

To your smile

Wasting days and days

On this night

Always down and up

Half the night

Hopeless to reminisce

Through the dark hours

We'll only sacrifice

What time will allow us

You're sighing... sighing

All alone

Though you're right here

Now it's time to go

From your sad stare

Make my getaway

Time on my own

Needing a better way

To find my way home

To your smile

In My Life

The Beatles

There are places I remember

All my life though some have changed

Some forever not for better

Some have gone and some remain

All these places have their moments

With lovers and friends I still can recall

Some are dead and some are living

In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers

There is no one compares with you

And these memories lose their meaning

When I think of love as something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know I'll often stop and think about them

In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know I'll often stop and think about them

In my life I love you more

In my life I love you more

200 More Miles

(Michael Timmins - The Cowboy Junkies)

Atlanta's a distant memory,

Montgomery a recent blur

and Tulsa burns on the desert floor

like a signal fire.

I got Willie on the radio, a dozen things on my mind

and number one is fleshing out these dreams of mine.

I've got 200 more miles

of rain asphalt and light

before I sleep

but there'll be no warm sheets

or welcoming arms to fall into tonight.

In Nashville there is a lighter in a case for all to see

it speaks of dreams and heartaches left unsung.

And in the corner stands a guitar

and lonesome words scrawled in a drunken hand.

I'm traveling paths, travelled hard before

and I'm beginning to understand.

That I've got 200 more miles

of rain asphalt and light

before I sleep

but there'll be no warm sheets

or welcoming arms to fall into tonight.

You say that I am crazy, my life wasting on this road

that time will find my dreams - scattered dead and cold.

But ahead there is a light

drawing me to reach an end

and when I reach there, I'll turn back

and you and I can begin again.

I've got 200 more miles

of rain asphalt and light

before I sleep

but there'll be no warm sheets

or welcoming arms to fall into tonight.

I've got 200 more miles

of rain asphalt and light

before I sleep

but I wouldn't trade all your golden tomorrow's

for one hour of this night.

Atlanta's a distant memory,

Montgomery a recent blur

and Tulsa burns on the desert floor -

like a signal fire.

Romeo and Juliet -----Dire Straits

A love-struck Romeo sings the streets a serenade

Laying everybody low with a love song that he made.

Finds a streetlight, steps out of the shade

Says something like "you and me babe, how about it?"

Juliet says "hey, it's Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack!"

He's underneath the window she's singing "hey la, my boyfriend's back.

You shouldn't come around here singing up at people like that...

Anyway what you gonna do about it?"

ROMEO:

Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start

And I bet that you exploded into my heart

And I forget I forget the movie song.

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?

Come up on different streets, they both were streets of shame.

Both dirty, both mean, yes and the dream was just the same

And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real.

How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?

When you can fall for chains of silver,

You can fall for chains of gold,

You can fall for pretty strangers,

And the promises they hold.

You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin, yeah!

Now you just say "oh Romeo, yeah, you know I used to have a scene with him".

Juliet, when we made love you used to cry.

You said "I love you like the stars above, I'll love you 'til I die".

There's a place for us, you know the movie song.

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?

I can't do the talks, like the talk on the TV

And I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be.

I can't do everything, but I'll do anything for you,

I can't do anything, except be in love with you!

And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be,

All I do is keep the beat and the bad company.

Now all I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme,

Juliet, I'd do the stars with you any time!

Juliet, when we made love you used to cry.

You said "I love you like the stars above, I'll love you 'til I die".

There's a place for us, you know the movie song.

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?

NARRATOR:

A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade

Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made

Finds a convenient streetlight, steps out of the shade

He says something like "you and me babe, how about it?"

ROMEO:

"You and me babe, how about it?"

Down With Love -- Bobby Darin

Down with love the flowers and rice and shoes

Down with love the root of all midnight blues

Down with things that give you that well-known ping

Take that moon wrap it in cellophane

Down with love let's liquidate all its friends

Moon and June and roses and rainbow's ends

Down with songs that moan about night and day

Down with love yes take it away, away

Away

Far away

Give it back to the birds and bees and the Viennese

Down with eyes romantic and stupid

Down with sighs and down with cupid

Brother let's stuff that dove

Down with love

Down with love let's liquidate all its friends

The moons the Junes the roses and rainbow's ends

Down with songs that moan about night and day

Down with love yes take it away, away

Far away

So very, very far away

Give it back to the birds and the bees and especially the Viennese

Down with eyes romantic and stupid

Down with sighs and down with cupid

Brother let's stuff that dove

Down with love

When You're On Top

The Wallflowers

I need a bed

That nobodys slept in

I need some air

Nobodys been breathing

I need a thought

That I can believe in

Is this fog

Or is the building really burning

I need you

Much more than ever

Im making new friends

But none of them matter

Maybe now

We dont fit together

But youve got your arms around

No one but strangers

I feel fine

With the sun in my eyes

The wind in my hair

When Im falling out of this sky

Im doing better than I thought I would

But nothings ever as good

As when youre on top

I want to wake up

And just start running

Into a ditch

Or straight up a mountain

I want to get

Where no one been gettin

Make it deeper than hell

Or make it higher than heaven

I need someone whose price hasnt been met

When everybodys disappearing

By the minute

There isnt anyone left

I havent meet yet

Well I remember

When they hadnt gotten to you yet

[chorus]

Half way up

And over this rainbow

I heard a shot

Fire up from a ghetto

As I drop

I didnt think youd follow

Just didnt know

The sky was this shallow

I need a garden

Where nothings forbidden

I need an apple

That no ones been eatin

I want to start again

Back at the beginnin

I had a vision

That this feeling maybe has an ending

[chorus]

An End Has A Start - Editors

I don’t think that it’s gonna rain again today,

There's a devil at your side, but an angel on the way

Someone hit the light, cause there's more here to be seen

When you caught my eye, I saw everywhere I'd been

And want to go to

You came on your own, that's how you'll leave

With hope in your hands and air to breathe

I won’t disappoint you as you fall apart

Some things should be simple, an end has a start

Someone hit the light, cause there's more here to be seen

When you caught my eye, I saw everywhere I'd been

And want to go to

You came on your own, that's how you'll leave

With hope in your hands, and air to breathe

You'll lose everything by the end

Still my broken limbs will find time to mend

More and more people I know are getting ill

Put something good on the ashes now be still

You came on your own, that's how you'll leave

With hope in your hands and air to breathe

You'll lose everything, but in the end

Still my broken limbs will find time to mend

Dreaming My Dreams

(Waylon Jennings)

I hope that I won't be that wrong anymore,

And maybe I've learned this time.

I hope that I find what I'm reaching for,

the way that it is in my mind.

Someday I'll get over you.

I'll live to see it all through.

But I'll always miss,

Dreaming my dreams with you.

But I won't let it change me,

Not if I can.

I'd rather believe in love.

And give it away as much as I can,

To those that I'm fondest of.

Someday I'll get over you.

I'll live to see it all through.

But I'll always miss,

Dreaming my dreams with you.

Someday I'll get over you.

I'll live to see it all through.

But I'll always miss,

Dreaming my dreams with you.

The One To Walk You Home

(Written by Gary Nicholson, Kimmie Rhodes, and Benmont Tench;

sung as a duet between Kimmie and Benmont)

i don't know where you've been

i don't know where you're goin'

wherever you're goin'

i'm sure it's not out of my way

if i tag along would you tell me your story

'cause i want to hear every word that you've got to say

if life is a journey

and love is the road we're on

i want to be the one

the one to walk you home

every now and then

i find myself driftin'

but off in the distance

i see something sparkling bright

and time and again i've tried to find it

i think i could find it if you were by my side

if life is a journey

and love is the road we're on

i want to be the one

the one to walk you home....

and i want you to believe

there's no better place for you to be

than here on this road

walkin' along with me

so, give me your hand

whenever you're ready

'cause i think we could be headed for home

if life is a journey

and love is the road we're on

i want to be the one

the one to walk you home

6th Avenue Heartache-The Wallflowers

Sirens ring, the shots ring out

A stranger cries, screams out loud

I had my world strapped against my back

I held my hands, never knew how to act

And the same black line that was drawn on you

Was drawn on me

And now it's drawn me in

6th Avenue heartache

Below me, there was a homeless man,

singin' songs I knew complete

On the steps alone, his guitar in hand

It's fifty years, stood where he stands

And the same black line that was drawn on you

Was drawn on me

And now it's drawn me in

6th Avenue heartache

And the same black line that was drawn on you

Was drawn on me

And now it's drawn me in

6th Avenue heartache

Now walking home on those streets

The river winds they move my feet

Subway steam, like silhouettes in dreams

They stood by me just like moonbeams

And the same black line that was drawn on you

Was drawn on me

And now it's drawn me in

6th Avenue heartache

And the same black line that was drawn on you

Was drawn on me

And now it's drawn me in

6th Avenue heartache

Looked out the window, down upon that street

And gone like a midnight was that man

But I seen his six strings laid against that wall

And all his things, they all look so small

I got my fingers crossed on a shooting star

Just like me, he just moved on

And the same black line that was drawn on you

Was drawn on me

And now it's drawn me in

6th Avenue heartache

And the same black line that was drawn on you

Was drawn on me

And now it's drawn me in

6th Avenue heartache

And the same black line that was drawn on you

Was drawn on me

And now it's drawn me in

6th Avenue heartache

Tenderness on the Block

W. Zevon - J. Browne

Mamma where's your pretty little girl tonight

She's tryin' to run before she can walk

That's right

She's growing up

She's got a young man waiting

She's growing up

She's got a young man waiting

She's wide-eyed

She'll be streetwise

To the lies

And the jive talk

But she'll find true love

And tenderness on the block

Now daddy don't you ask her when

she's comin' home

When she's back don't ask her where

she's been

She's going out

She's got a young man waiting

She's going out

She's got a young man waiting

She'll be okay

Let her have her way

It's a long way

It's a long walk

But she'll find true love

And tenderness on the block

She's gonna find true love

She's gonna find true love

She's gonna find true love

And tenderness on the block

Now I know how much it hurts to see her go

But she's got a mind of her own you know

She's all grown-up

She's got a young man waiting

She's all grown-up

She's got a young man waiting

She was wide-eyed

Now she's streetwise

To the lies

And the jive talk

But she'll find true love

And tenderness on the block

She's gonna find true love :heart:

Return of the Grievous Angel

Words and Music by Thomas S. Brown and Gram Parsons

Won't you scratch my itch sweet Annie Rich

And welcome me back to town

Come out on your porch or I'll step into your parlor

And I'll show you how it all went down

Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels

And a good saloon in every single town

Oh, and I remember something you once told me

And I'll be damned if it did not come true

Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down

And they all lead me straight back home to you

`Cause I headed West to grow up with the country

Across those prairies with the waves of grain

And I saw my devil,

and I saw my deep blue sea

And I thought about a calico bonnet from

Cheyenne to Tennessee

We flew straight across that river bridge,

last night a half past two

The switchman wave his lantern goodbye

and so long as we went rolling through

Billboards and truckstops pass by the grievous angel

And now I know just what I have to do

And the man on the radio won't leave me alone

He wants to take my money for something

that I've never been shown

And I saw my devil,

and I saw my deep blue sea

And I thought about a calico bonnet from

Cheyenne to Tennessee

The news I could bring I met up with the king

On his head an amphetamine crown

He talked about unbuckling that old bible belt

And lighted out for some desert town

Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels

And a good saloon in every single town

Oh, but I remembered something you once told me

And I'll be damned if it did not come true

Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down

And they all lead me straight back home to you

Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down

And they all lead me straight back home to you

Most Likely You Go Your Way And I'll Go Mine

Bob Dylan

You say you love me

And you're thinkin' of me,

But you know you could be wrong.

You say you told me

That you wanna hold me,

But you know you're not that strong.

I just can't do what I done before,

I just can't beg you any more.

I'm gonna let you pass

And I'll go last.

Then time will tell just who fell

And who's been left behind,

When you go your way and I go mine.

You say you disturb me

And you don't deserve me,

But you know sometimes you lie.

You say you're shakin'

And you're always achin',

But you know how hard you try.

Sometimes it gets so hard to care,

It can't be this way ev'rywhere.

And I'm gonna let you pass,

Yes, and I'll go last.

Then time will tell just who fell

And who's been left behind,

When you go your way and I go mine.

The judge, he holds a grudge,

He's gonna call on you.

But he's badly built

And he walks on stilts,

Watch out he don't fall on you.

You say you're sorry

For tellin' stories

That you know I believe are true.

You say ya got some

Other kinda lover

And yes, I believe you do.

You say my kisses are not like his,

But this time I'm not gonna tell you why that is.

I'm just gonna let you pass,

Yes, and I'll go last.

Then time will tell who fell

And who's been left behind,

When you go your way and I go mine.
