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

Shadows are fallin' an' I been here all day
It's too hot to sleep and time is runnin' away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I've still got the scars that the sun didn't heal.
There's not even room enough to be anywhere
It's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there.

Well my sense of humility is going down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing, there's been some kind of pain.
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writin' what was in her mind.
I just don't see why I should even care
It's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there.

Well I been to London and I been to gay Paris
I followed the river and I got to the sea
I been down on the bottom of a world full of lies
I ain't lookin' for nothin' in anyone's eyes.
Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
It's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there.

I was born here and I'll die here, against my will.
I know it looks like I'm movin', but I'm standin' still.
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb.
I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from.
Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer
It's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there.  up
