cd imgPURE DYLAN - AN INTIMATE LOOK AT BOB DYLAN

  Under the Red Sky sessions - Mar/Apr 1990  

In the lonely night
In the blinkin' stardust of a pale blue light
You're comin' thru to me in black an' white
When we were made of dreams.

You're blowin' down the shaky street
You're hearin' my heart beat
In the record breakin' heat
Where we were born in time.

Not one more night, not one more kiss
Not this time babe, no more of this
Takes too much skill, takes too much will
It's too revealin'.

You came, you saw just like the law
You married young just like your ma
You tried an' tried, you made me slide
You left me reelin' with this feelin'.

On the risin' curve
Where the ways of nature will test every nerve
You won't get anythin' you don't deserve
Where we were born in time.

You pressed me once, you pressed me twice
You hung the flame, you'll pay the price
Oh babe, that fire
Is still smokin'.

You were snow, you were rain
You were striped, you were plain
Oh babe, truer words
Have not been spoken or broken.

In the hills of mystery
In the foggy web of destiny
You can have what's left of me
Where we were born in time.  up

= THE BEST OF THE BOOTLEG SERIES [UNCUT], track 12 -->

In the lonely night
In the stardust of a pale blue light
I think of you in black an' white
When we were made of dreams.

I walk alone into the shakin' street
Listenin' my heart beat
In the record breakin' heat
Where we were born in time.

Just when i thought
You were gone, you came back
Just when i was ready
To receive you.

You were smooth, you were rough
You were more than enough
Oh babe, why did i ever leave you?
Or grieve you?

On the rising curve
Where the ways of nature will test every nerve
I took you close and got what i deserved
Where we were born in time.

Just when i knew
Who to thank, you went blank
Just when the firelight
Was gleaming.

You were snow, you were rain
You were striped, you were plain
Oh babe, could it be that you been scheming?
Or was i dreaming?

In the hills of mystery
In the foggy web of destiny
You're still so deep inside of me
When we were born in time.  up

  Oh Mercy session 1, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 28.feb.1989 #2   

In the lonely night
In the smoking stardust of a pale blue light
You're standing there in black an' white
When we were made of dreams.

I walk alone through the shakin' streets
Listenin' my heart beat
In the record breakin' heat
Where we were born in time.

Just when i thought
You were gone, you came back
Just when i knew
It was for certain.

You were high, you were low
You were so easy to know
Oh babe, now it's time to raise the curtain
I'm hurtin'.

Upon the rising curve
Where the ways of nature will test every nerve
You took me in and got what i deserved
Where we were born in time.

Just when i knew
Who to thank, you went blank
Just when the home-fires
Start smoking.

You were snow, you were rain
You were striped, you were plain
Oh babe, truer words have not been spoken
Or broken.

In the hills of mystery
In the foggy web of destiny
You're still so deep inside of me
Where we were born in time.  up

  NJ Center for Performing Arts, Newark NJ - 1.feb.1998  

In the lonely night
In the shadows of a pale moon light
I think of you in black an' white
When we were made of dreams.

I walk alone into the shakin' street
I'm listenin' to my heart beat
In the record breakin' heat
Where we were born in time.

Not one more night, not one more kiss
Not this time, i'll have no more of this
It's much too old, it's much too old?
Way too revealin'.

You came, you saw just like the law
You married young just like your ma
Oh babe, now you left me
Reelin' with this feelin'.

Upon the risin' curve
Where the ways of nature will test every nerve
I held you close an' got what i deserved
Where we were born in time.

You pressed me once, you pressed me twice
You hung the flame an' you paid the price
Oh babe, an' that fire
Is still smokin'.

You were snow, you were rain
You were striped now an' you were plain
Oh baby, truer words have
Never been spoken nor broken.

In the hills of mystery
In the foggy web of destiny
You can have what's left of me
Where we were born in time.  up
