all Bob Dylan lyrics



Seeing the Real You at Last
Well, I thought that the rain would cool things down
But it looks like it don't.
I'd like to get you to change your mind
But it looks like you won't.

From now on I'll be busy,
Ain't goin' nowhere fast.
I'm just glad it's over
And I'm seeing the real you at last.

Well, didn't I risk my neck for you,
Didn't I take chances?
Didn't I rise above it all for you,
The most unfortunate circumstances?

Well, I have had some rotten nights,
Didn't think that they would pass.
I'm just thankful and grateful
To be seeing the real you at last.

I'm hungry and I'm irritable
And I'm tired of this bag of tricks.
At one time there was nothing wrong with me
That you could not fix.

Well, I sailed through the storm
Strapped to the mast,
But the time has come
And I'm seeing the real you at last.

When I met you, baby,
You didn't show no visible scars.
You could ride like annie oakley,
You could shoot like belle starr.

Well, I don't mind a reasonable amount of trouble,
Trouble always comes to pass
But all I care about now
Is that I'm seeing the real you at last.

Well, I'm gonna quit this baby talk now,
I guess I should have known.
I got troubles, I think maybe you got troubles,
I think maybe we'd better leave each other alone.

Whatever you gonna do,
Please do it fast.
I'm still trying to get used to
Seeing the real you at last.back to top
I'll Remember You
I'll remember you
When I've forgotten all the rest,
You to me were true,
You to me were the best.
When there is no more,
You cut to the core
Quicker than anyone I knew
When I'm all alone
In the great unknown
I'll remember you.

I'll remember you
At the end of the trail.
I had so much left to do.
I had so little time to fail.
There's some people that
You don't forget
Even though you've only seen'm
One time or two.
When the roses fade,
And I'm in the shade,
I'll remember you.

Didn't i, didn't I try to love you?
Didn't i, didn't I try to care?
Didn't I sleep, didn't I weep beside you
With the rain blowing in your hair?

I'll remember you
When the wind blows through the piney wood.
It was you who came right through,
It was you who understood.
Though I'd never say
That I'd done it the way
That you'd have liked me to.
In the end,
My dear sweet friend,
I'll remember you.back to top
Clean Cut Kid
Everybody's asking why he couldn't adjust
Adjust to what, a dream that bust?

They took a clean-cut kid
And they made a killer out of him
That's what they did

They said what's up is down, they said what isn't is
They put ideas in his head that he thought were his

They took a clean-cut kid
But they made a killer out him
That's what they did

He was on the baseball team, he was in the marching band
When he was ten years old he had a watermelon stand

He was a clean-cut kid
And they made a killer out of him
That's what they did

He went to church on sunday, he was a boy scout
For his friends he would turn his pockets inside out

He was a clean-cut kid
But they made a killer out him
That's what they did

They said, 'listen boy, you're just a pup'
They sent to a napalm health spa to shape up

They gave him dope to smoke, drinks and pills,
A jeep to drive, blood to spill

They said 'congratulations you got what it takes'.
They sent him back into the rat-race without any brakes

They took a clean-cut kid
And they made a killer out him
That's what they did

He bought the american dream but it put him in debt
Only game he could play was russian roulette

He drank coca-cola, he was eating wonder bread
He ate burger kings, he was well fed

He went to hollywood to see peter o'toole
He stole a rolls royce and drove it in a swimming pool

They took a clean-cut kid
But they made a killer out of him
That's what they did

He could've sold insurance, owned a restaurant or a bar
He could've been an accountant or a tennis star

He was wearing boxing gloves, he took a dive one day
Off the golden gate bridge into china bay

His mama walks the floor, his dadddy weeps and moans
They gotta sleep together in a home they don't own

They took a clean-cut kid
And made a killer out of him
That's what they did

Everybody's asking why he didn't adjust
All he ever wanted was someone he could trust

They took his head and turned it inside out
He never did know what it was all about

He had a steady job, he joined the choir
He never did plan to walk the high wire

They took a clean-cut kid
And they made a killer out him
That's what they did.back to top
Never Gonna Be the Same Again
Now you're here beside me, baby,
You're a living dream.
And every time you get this close
It makes me want to scream.
You touched me and you knew
That I was warm for you and then,
I ain't never gonna be the same again.

Sorry if I hurt you, baby,
Sorry if I did.
Sorry if I touched the place
Where your secrets are hid.
But you meant more than everything
And I could not pretend.
I ain't never gonna be the same again.

You give me something to think about, baby,
Every time I see ya.
Don't worry baby, I don't mind leaving,
I'd just like it to be my idea.

You taught me how to love you, baby,
And you taught me, oh, so well.
Now, I can't go back to what was, baby.
I can't unring the bell.
You took my reality
And cast it to the wind
And I ain't never gonna be the same again.back to top
Trust Yourself
Trust yourself,
Trust yourself to do the things that only you know best.
Trust yourself,
Trust yourself to do what's right and not be second-guessed.
Don't trust me to show you beauty
When beauty may only turn to rust.
If you need somebody you can trust, trust yourself.

Trust yourself,
Trust yourself to know the way that will prove true in the end.
Trust yourself,
Trust yourself to find the path where there is no if and when.
Don't trust me to show you the truth
When the truth may only be ashes and dust.
If you want somebody you can trust, trust yourself.

Well, you're on your own, you always were.
In a land of wolves and thieves.
Don't put your hope in ungodly man
Or be a slave to what somebody else believes.

Trust yourself
And you won't be disappointed when vain people let you down.
Trust yourself
And look not for answers where no answers can be found.
Don't trust me to show you love
When my love may only be lust.
If you want somebody you can trust, trust yourself.back to top
Emotionally Yours
Come baby, find me, come baby, remind me of where I once begun.
Come baby, show me, show me you know me, tell me you're the one.
I could be learning, you could be yearning to see behind closed doors.
But I will always be emotionally yours.

Come baby, rock me, come baby, lock me into the shadows of your heart.
Come baby, teach me, come baby, reach me, let the music start.
I could be dreaming but I keep believing you're the one I'm living for.
And I will always be emotionally yours.

It's like my whole life never happened,
When I see you, it's as if I never had a thought.
I know this dream, it might be crazy,
But it's the only one I've got.

Come baby, shake me, come baby, take me, I would be satisfied.
Come baby, hold me, come baby, help me, my arms are open wide.
I could be unraveling wherever I'm traveling, even to foreign shores.
But I will always be emotionally yours.back to top
When the Night Comes Falling from the Sky
Look out across the fields, see me returning.
Smoke is in your eyes, you draw a smile.
From the fireplace where my letters to you are burning,
You've had time to think about it for a while.

Well, I've walked two hundred miles, look me over.
Its the end of the chase and the moon is high.
It won't matter who loves who.
You'll love me or I'll love you
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling from the sky.

I can see through your walls and I know you're hurting.
Sorrow covers you up like a cape.
Only yesterday I know that you've been flirting
With disaster you somehow managed to escape.

Well, I can't provide for you no easy answers.
Who are you that I should have to lie?
You'll know all about it, love.
It'll fit you like a glove
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling from the sky.

I can hear your trembling heart beat like a river.
You must have been protecting someone last time I called.
I've never asked you for nothing that you couldn't deliver.
I've never asked to set yourself up for a fall.

I saw thousands who could have overcome the darkness,
For the love of a lousy buck, I've watched them die.
Stick around, baby, we're not through,
Don't look for me, I'll see you.
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling from the sky.

In your teardrops, I can see my own reflection.
It was on the northern border of texas where I crossed the line.
I don't want to be a fool starving for affection.
I don't want to drown in someone else's wine.

For all eternity I think I will remember
That icy wind that's howling in your eye.
You will seek me and you'll find
Me in the wasteland of your mind.
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling from the sky.

Well, I sent you my feelings in a letter
But you were gambling for support.
This time tomorrow I'll know you better.
Where my memory is not so short.

This time I'm asking for freedom,
Freedom from a world which you deny.
And you'll give it to me now,
I'll take it anyhow.
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling,
When the night comes falling from the sky.back to top
Something's Burning, Baby
Something is burning, baby, are you aware?
Something is the matter, baby, there's smoke in your hair
Are you still my friend, baby, show me a sign
Is the love in your heart for me turning blind?

You've been avoiding the main streets for a long, long while
The truth that I'm seeking is in your missing file
What's your position, baby, what's going on?
Why is the light in your eyes nearly gone?

I know everything about this place, or so it seems
Am I know longer a part of your plans or your dreams?
Well, it is so obvious that something has changed
What's happening baby to make you act so strange?

Something is burning, baby, here's what I say
Even the bloodhounds of london couldn't find you today
I see the shadow of a man, baby, makin' you blue
Who is he, baby, and what's he to you?

We've reached the edge of the road, baby, where the pasture begins
Where charity is supposed to cover up a multitude of sins
But where do you live, baby, and where is the light?
Why are your eyes just staring off in the night?

I can feel it in the night, in the night, in the night, when I think of you
I can feel it in the light, in the light, in the light, and it's got to be true
You can't live by bread alone, you won't be satisfied
You can't roll away the stone if your hands are tied

Got to start someplace baby, can you explain?
Please don't fade away on me baby, like the midnight train
Answer me baby, a casual look will do
Just what in the world has come over you?

I can feel it in the wind, in the wind, in the wind, and it's upside down
I can feel it in the dust as I get of the bus on the outskirts of town
I've had the mexico city blues since the last hairpin curve
I don't wanna see you bleed, I know what you need and it ain't what you deserve.

Something is burning, baby, something's in flames
There's a man going round calling names
Ring down when your ready, baby, I'm waiting for you
I believe in the impossible, you know that I do.back to top
Dark Eyes
Oh, the gentlemen are talking and the midnight moon is on the riverside.
They're drinking up and walking and it is time for me to slide.
I live in another world where life and death are memorized.
Where the earth is strung with lovers' pearls and all I see are dark eyes.

A cock is crowing far away and another soldier's deep in prayer.
Some mother's child has gone astray, she can't find him anywhere.
But I can hear another drum beating for the dead that rise.
Whom nature's beast fears as they come and all I see are dark eyes.

They tell me to be discreet for all intended purposes.
They tell me revenge is sweet and from where they stand, I'm sure it is.
But I feel nothing for their game where beauty goes unrecognised.
All I feel is heat and flame and all I see are dark eyes.

Oh, the french girl, she's in paradise and a drunken man is at the wheel.
Hunger pays a heavy price to the falling gods of speed and steel.
Oh, time is short and the days are sweet and passion rules the arrow that flies.
A million faces at my feet but all I see are dark eyes.back to top
