cd imgOH MERCY
cd imgPURE DYLAN - AN INTIMATE LOOK AT BOB DYLAN

  Oh Mercy session 6, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 14 or 15.mar.1989, album version  

Seen a shootin' star tonight
An' i thought of you
You're tryin' to break into another world
A world i never knew
I always kinda wondered
If you ever made it thru
Seen a shootin' star tonight
An' i thought of you.

Seen a shootin' star tonight
An' i thought of me
If i was still the same
If i ever became what you wanted me to be?
Did i miss the mark
Overstep the line that only you could see?
Seen a shootin' star tonight
And i thought of me.

Listen to the engine
Listen to the bell
As the last fire truck from hell
Goes rollin' by, all good people are prayin'.
It's the last temptation
The last account
Last time you might hear the sermon on the mount
Last radio's playin'.

Seen a shootin' star tonight
Slip away.
Tomorrow will be another day
Guess it's too late to say the things to you
That you needed to hear me say
Seen a shootin' star tonight
Slip away.  up

Seen a shooting star tonight
An' I thought of you
There's something reachin' out to me
Something comin' through
................. thing [to start anew/wanna do]
I seen a shooting star tonight
An' I thought of you.

Seen a shooting star tonight
Against the gray
Up in the hot rod sky
Across the prairies of pain
I's lookin' up an' dreamin'
Like I sometimes do
Seen a shooting star tonight
An' I thought of you.

Listen to the engine
Listen to the bell
As the last fire truck from hell
Goes rollin' by, all good people are prayin'
It's the last temptation, the last account
Last time you might hear the sermon on the mount
The last radio is playin'.

Seen a shooting star tonight 
'Cross the flat land roads
I's a thousand miles away
From where the end of time explodes
I was lookin' up wonderin' if the dawn was breakin' through
I seen a shooting star tonight
An' I thought of you.  up
