Temporary Like Achilles 1

Bob Dylan

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


9 Mar 1966
cd imgBLONDE ON BLONDE

  Blonde On Blonde session 10, Nashville - 9.mar.1966, take 4  

Standin' on your window, honey
Yes, i've been here before
Feelin' so harmless
I'm lookin' at your second door
How come you don't send me no regards
You know i want your lovin'
Honey, why are you so hard?

Kneelin' 'neath your ceiling
Yes, i guess i'll be here for a while
I'm tryin' to read your portrait, but
I'm helpless like a rich man's child
How come you send someone out to have me barred
You know i want your lovin'
Honey, why are you so hard?

Like a poor fool in his prime
Yes i know you can hear me walk
But is your heart made out of stone
Or is it lime
Or is it just solid rock?

Well i lean into your hallway
Lean against your velvet door
I watch upon your scorpion
Who crawls across your circus floor
Just what do you think you have to guard?
You know i want your lovin'
Honey, but you're so hard.

Achilles is in your alley way
He don't want me here, he does brag
He's pointin' to the sky
An' he's hungry like a man in drag
How come you get someone like him to be your guard?
You know i want your lovin'
Honey, but you're so hard.  up
