  MODERN TIMES session, Clinton Studio NYC- february 2006  

In the still of the night
In the world's ancient light
Where wisdom grows up in strife
My bewilderin' brain
Toils in vain
Through the darkness on the pathways of life.
Each invisible prayer
Is like a cloud in the air
Tomorrow keeps turnin' around
We live and we die
We know not why
But i'll be with you when the deal goes down.

We eat and we drink
We feel and we think
Far down the street we stray
I laugh and i cry
And i'm haunted by
Things i never meant nor wished to say.
The midnight rain
Follows the train
We all wear the same thorny crown
Soul to soul
Our shadows roll
And i'll be with you when the deal goes down.

Well the moon gives light
And it shines by night
When i scarcely feel the glow.
We learn to live
And then we forgive
O'er the road we're bound to go.
More frailer than the flowers
These precious hours
That keep us so tightly bound.
You come to my eyes
Like a vision from the skies
And i'll be with you when the deal goes down.

Well i picked up a rose
And it poked through my clothes
I followed the windin' stream
I heard the deafenin' noise
I felt transient joys
I know they're not what they seem.
In this earthly domain
Full of disappointment and pain
You'll never see me frown.
I owe my heart to you
And that's sayin' it true
And i'll be with you when the deal goes down.  up
