Bob Dylan Long And Wasted Years Lyrics

Last updated: 09/11/2012 02:40:12 PM

It's been such a long, long time
Since we loved each other and our hearts were true
One time, for one brief day, I was the man for you

Last night I heard you talking in your sleep
Saying things you shouldn't say
Oh baby, you just might have to go to jail someday

Is there a place we can go?
Is there anybody we can see?
Maybe, it's the same for you as it is for me

I ain't seen my family in twenty- years
That ain't easy to understand
They may be dead by now
I lost track of them after they lost their land

Shake it up baby twist and shout
You know what it's all about
What you doing out there in the sun anyway
Don't you know the sun can burn your brains right out

My enemy crashed into the dust
Stopped in dead his tracks and he lost his lust
He was run down hard and he broke apart
He died in shame he had a iron heart

I wear dark glasses to cover my eyes
There are secrets in them I cant disguise
Come back baby if I ever hurt your feelings I apologize

Two trains running by side side
Forty miles wide, down the eastern line
You don't have to go I just came to you cause your a friend of mine

I think that when my back was turned
The whole world behind me burned
It's been awhile since we walked down that long, long isle

We cried on that cold and frosty morn
We cried because our souls were torn
So much for tears, so much for these long and wasted years
