Nobody 'Cept You 1

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


2 Nov 1973
cd imgTHE BOOTLEG SERIES Vol. 2

  Planet Waves session 1, Village Recorder, Santa Monica CA - 2.nov.1973  

There's nothing 'round here I believe in
'Cept you, yeah you.
And there's nothing to me that's sacred
'Cept you, yeah you.
You're the one that reaches me
You're the one that I admire
Every time we meet together
My soul feels like it's on fire
Nothing matters to me
And there's nothing I desire
'Cept you, yeah you.

Nothing 'round here I care to try for
'Cept you, yeah you.
Got nothing left to live or die for
'Cept you, yeah you.
There's a hymn I used to hear
In the churches all the time
Make me feel so good inside
So peaceful, so sublime
And there's nothing to remind me of that
Old familiar chime
'Cept you, uh huh you.

Used to play in the cemetery
Dance and sing and run when I was a child
Never seemed strange
But now I just pass mournfully by
That place where the bones of life are piled
I know somethin' has changed
I'm a stranger here and no one sees me
'Cept you, yeah you.

Nothing much matters or seems to please me
'Cept you, yeah you.
Nothing hypnotizes me
Or holds me in a spell
Everything runs by me
Just like water from a well
Everybody wants my attention
Everybody's got something to sell
'Cept you, yeah you.  up

Nothin' 'round here to me that's sacred

There's nothing 'round here to me that i believe in
Except you, yeah you.
You're the one that reaches me
You're the one that i admire
Every time we meet you know
I feel like i'm on fire
Nothing matters to me
And there's nothing i desire
Except you, yeah you.

Nothin' 'round here i care to try for
Except you, yeah you
Got nothing here to live or die for
Except you, yeah you
There's a hymn i used to hear
In the churches all the time
Make me feel so good inside
So peaceful, so sublime
And there's nothing that reminds me
Of that old familiar chime
'Cept you, yeah you.

Used to run in the cemetery
Dance an' run an' play when i was a child
An' it never seemed strange
Now i just pass mournfully
By that place where the bones of life are piled
I know somethin' has changed
I'm a stranger here an' no one sees me
Except you, yeah you.

Nothin' anymore seems to please me
Except you, yeah you
Nothin' hypnotizes me
Or holds me in a spell
Everything runs by me
Just like water from a well
Everybody wants my attention
Everybody's got something to sell
Except you, yeah you
I'm still in love with you.  up
