cd imgTIME OUT OF MIND

  Time Out of Mind sessions, Criteria studios, Miami FL - January 1997, album version  

You took a part of me that I really miss
I keep askin' myself how long it can go on like this
You told yourself a lie, that's alright mama, i told myself one too
I try to get closer but i'm still a million miles from you.

You took the silver, you took the gold
You left me standin' out in the cold
People asked about you, i didn't tell them everything i knew
Well I try to get closer but i'm still a million miles from you.

I'm driftin in and out of dreamless sleep
Somehow my memory's in a ditch so deep
Did so many things i never did intend to do
And i try to get closer but i'm still a million miles from you.

I need your love so bad, turn your lamp down low
I need every bit of it for the places that i go
Sometimes i wonder, tell us just what it's all coming to
Well i try to get closer but i'm still a million miles from you.

Well i don't dare close my eyes and i don't dare wink
Maybe in the next life i'll be able to hear myself think
Feel like talkin' to somebody but i just don't know who
Well i try to get closer but i'm still a million miles from you.

Yes the last thing you said before you hit the street
Gonna find me a janitor to sweep me off my feet
I said that's alright mamma you, you do what you gotta do
Well i try to get closer i'm still a million miles from you.

Rock me pretty baby, rock me all at once
Rock me for a little while, rock me for a couple of months
And i'll rock you too
I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you.

Well there's voices in the night tryin' to be heard
I'm sittin' here listening to every mind-pollutin' word
I know plenty of people put me up for a day or two
Yes i try to get closer but i'm still a million miles from you.  up
