Dreamin’ of You

1 February 2011

bq.. The light in this place is really bad Like being in the bottom of a stream Any minute now I’m expecting to wake up from a dream

Miss so much The softest touch Like the grave of some child Child who neither wept nor smiled I’m hiding my faith in the rain I’ve been dreamin’ of you That’s all I do And it’s driving me insane

Somewhere dawn is breaking Light is streaking across the floor Church bells are ringing I wonder who they’re ringing for Travel under any star You’ll see me wherever you are

The shadowy past is so vague and so vast I’m sleeping in the balance of pain I’ve been dreamin’ of you That’s all I do But it’s driving me insane

Maybe they’ll get me Maybe they won’t But whatever it’is it won’t be tonight I wish your hand was in mine right now We could go where the moon is white

For years they had me locked in a cage Then they threw me onto the stage Somethings just last longer then you thought they would And they never ever explain I’m dreamin’ of you That’s all I do And it’s driving me insane

Well I eat when I’m hungry Drink when I’m dry Live my life on the square Even if the flesh falls off my face It won’t matter as long as you’re there

Feel like a ghost in love Underneath the heavens above Feel further away yhen I ever did before Feel further than I can take Dreamin’ of you That’s all I do But it’s driving me insane

Everything in the way is so shiny today In queer and unusual form Spirals of golden haze here and there in a blaze Like beams of light in a star

Maybe you’re here or maybe you weren’t Maybe you touched somebody and got burned The silent sun has got me on the run Burning a hole in my brain I’m dreamin’ of you That’s all I do But it’s driving me Insane

Bob Dylan, Dreamin’ of You, Tell Tale Signs
