|Al Diesan - a tribute to the Teacher: Bob Dylan|
you remember Ma, when I went off to war, you thought it was the best thing
I could do ? I was on the battleground, you were home acting proud, you
wasn't there standing in my shoes."
far past the frozen leaves, the haunted frightened trees, out to the windy
beach, far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow..."
(Mr. Tambourine Man)
wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes and just for
that one moment J could be you, yes, J wish that for just one time you could
stand inside my shoes you'd know what a drag it is to see you."
(Positively 4th Street)
each one of us has his own special gift and you know this was meant to be
true, and if you don't underestimate me J won't underestimate you."
god bless and keep you always, may your wishes all come true, may you always
do for others and let others do for you; may you build a ladder to the stars
and climb on every rung, may you'll stay forever young."
the little hilltop village they gambled for my clothes, J bargained for
salvation and they gave me a lethal dose, J offered my innocence and got
repaid with scorn..."
(Shelter From The Storm)
J don't sense affection, no gratitude or love, your loyalty is not to me
but to the stars above."
(One More Cup Of Coffee)
a white diamond gloom on the dark side of this room and a pathway that leads
up to the stars, if you don't believe there's a price for this sweet paradise,
just remind me to show you the scars."
(Where Are You Ttonight)
but the enemy J see wears a cloak of decency, all non-believers and men
stealers talking in the name of religion..."
in the violence of a summer's dream, in the chill of a wintery light,
in the bitter dance of loneliness fading into space, in the broken mirror
of innocence on each forgotten face."
someone else is speakin' with my mouth, but J'm listening only to my heart,
J've made shoes for everyone, even you, while J still go barefoot."
(J And J)
strange how people who suffer together have stronger connections than people
who are most content..."
live in a political world, love don't have any place, we're living in times
hwere men commit crimes and crime don't have a face..."
J can't even remember what it was J came here to get away from, don't even
hear a murmur of a prayer, it's not dark yet, but it's getting there."
(Not Dark Yet)
my clothes are wet, tight on my skin, not as tight as the corner that J
painted myself in; J know that fortune is waiting to be kind, so give me
your hand and say you'll be mine."
Far away in a silent land, secret thoughts are hard to bear. Remember me,
you'll understand emotions we can never share."
(Tell Ol' Bill)
say prayer has the power to heal, so
pray from the mother, in the human heart an evil spirit can dwell, I am
a-tryin' to love my neighbor and do good unto others, but oh, mother,
things ain't going well . Ain't talkin', just walkin', I'll burn that
bridge before you can cross, heart burnin', still yearnin', There'll be
for you once you've lost "
like a walking shadow in my brain, all night long I lay awake and listen
to the sound of pain, the door has closed forevermore if indeed there was
I'm staying up late, I'm making amends, while we smile all heaven descends,
if love is a sin then beauty is a crime, all things are beautiful in their
That's my story, but not where it ends."
