I've torn my clothes, and I've drained the cup Strippin' away at it all Thinkin' of you when the sun comes up Where teardrops fall By the rivers of blindness In love and with kindness We would hold up a toast if we met To the cuttin' of fences To sharpen the senses That linger in the fireball heat Roses are red, violets are blue And time is beginning to crawl I just might have to come see you Where teardrops fall
(Bob Dylan: Where Teardrops Fall)
Far away where the soft winds blow Far away from it all There is the place you go Where tear drops fall Far away in the stormy night Far away and over he wall You are in the flickering light Where teardrops fall
We banged the drums slowly And played the fife lowly You know the song in my heart In the turning of the twilight In the turning shadows of moonlight You can show me a new place to start
Oh, beat the drum slowly, and play the fife lowly Sing the Death March as you carry me along Take me to the valley, there lay the sod over me I'm a young cowboy, I know I've done wrong
How long can I stay in this nowhere cafe While night turns into day I wonder why i'm so frightened of the dawn All I have, and all I know Is this dream of you that keeps me living on There's a moment when All things become new again But that moment might have past and gone
All I have, and I all I know Is this dream of you that keeps me living on I look away, and I keep seeing it I don't want to believe, but I keep believing it Shadows dance upon the wall Shadows that seem to know it all
Am I too blind to see, is my heart playing tricks on me I'm lost in the crowd, and my tears are gone All I have, and all I know Is this dream of you which keeps me livin' on Everything I touch just seems to disappear Everywhere I am, you are always here I'll run this race until my earthly death I'll defend this place with my dying breath
From a curtained gloom In a cheerless room I saw a star from heaven fall I turned and looked again, but it was gone All I have, and all I know Is this dream of you that keeps me living on
