Dreamin' of You [#]
by Bob Dylan



The light in this place
Is really bad
It's 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
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
And it's driving me insane

Maybe they'll get me
Maybe they won't
But whatever
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

Some things 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 heaven's above

Feel further away
Than 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 shy like the day
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
