God Knows 1

Bob Dylan © 1990 Special Rider Music

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


6 Jan 1990
cd imgUNDER THE RED SKY

  Under The Red Sky session 1, Los Angeles - 6.jan.1990   

God knows you ain't pretty
God knows it's true
God knows there ain't anybody
Ever gonna take the place of you.

God knows it's a struggle
God knows its a crime
God knows there's gonna be no more water
But fire next time.

God don't call it treason
God don't call it wrong
It was supposed to last a season
But it's been so strong for so long.

God knows it's fragile
God knows everything
God knows it could snap apart right now
Just like puttin' scissors to a string.

God knows it's terrifyin'
God sees it all unfold
There's a million reasons for you to be cryin'
You been so bold an' so cold.

God knows that when you see it
God knows you've got to weep
God knows the secrets of your heart
He'll tell them to you when you're asleep.

God knows there's a river
God knows how to make it flow
God knows you ain't gonna be takin'
Nothin' with you when you go.

God knows there's a purpose
God knows there's a chance
God knows you can rise above the darkest hour
Of any circumstance.

God knows there's a heaven
God knows it's out of sight
God knows we can get all the way from here to there
Even if we've got to walk a million miles by candlelight.  up

  OH MERCY session 4, New Orleans - 12 Mar 1989   

God knows i need you
God knows i do
God knows that there ain't anybody
Ever gonna take the place of you.

God knows i can take it
God knows i care
God knows that everybody got to have
Someone in the world somewhere.

God knows there's an answer
God knows it's all in place
God knows it might be workin' right now
Look into this right straight in the face

Ain't no rhyme or reason
I know it can't be wrong
It was supposed to last a season
But it was so strong for so long.

God knows i'm ready
God knows it's hard to find
God knows you're standin' right there before my very eyes
Messing up my mind.

Ain't no rhyme or reason
I know it can't be wrong
It was supposed to last a season
But it's been so strong, ah, for so long.

God knows there's a purpose
God knows there's a chance
God knows we can rise above the darkest hour
Under any circumstance.  up

  Live, Philadelphia - 7.jun.1995  

God knows I need you
God knows it's true
God knows ain't gonna be anybody
Ever in the world like you.

God knows it's a struggle
God knows it's a crime
God knows ain't gonna be no more water
But fire next time.

God don't say it's treason
God don't say it's wrong
It was supposed to last a season
But it's been so strong for so long.

God knows there's a purpose
God knows there's a chance
God knows you can rise above the darkest hour
Of any circumstance.

God knows it's terrifying
God sees it all unfold
There's a million reasons to be lying
You been so bold and so cold.

God knows there's a river
God knows how to make it flow
God knows, you ain't gonna be taking
Nothing with you when you go.  up
