Bob Dylan

"I’m Not There"

Things are crashing better, she's all too tight
In my neighbourhood she cry both day and night
It's a milestone but she's down on her luck
Days make her so lonely and it's so hard to buck
Now and then

I believe that she'd stop him if she'd find time to care
I believe that she may look upon decidin' whose to care
And I go by the Lord, anywhere she's on my way
But I don't belong there

No, I don't belong to her, I don't belong to every choir
She's my Christ-forsaken angel but she don't hear me cry
She's a lone-hearted mystic and she can't carry on
When I'm there she's all right, then she's not when I'm gone

Heaven knows that the answer, she don't con no one
She's the way forsaken beauty, she's mine for the one
And I lost her hesitating 'bout temptation as it runs
She don't harm me
I'm not there, I'm gone

Now I cried tonight, like I cried the night before
And I'll feast on the highway but I'll dream about the door
It's alone, she's forsaken by her fate, words to tell
It don't have approximation, she is smiling fairly well

Her smile is contagious, I was born to love her
But she knows that the kingdom waits so high above her
And I run by the race but it's not too fast still
But I've got the fever
I'm not there I'm gone

Well, it's all about diffusion as I cry for her veil
I don't need anybody now beside me to tell
And it's all affirmation, I'm asleep but it's not
She's a lone-hearted beauty but she don't like the spot
There she comes

Yeah, she's gone like a rainbow that was shining yesterday
But she's home now beside me and I'd like her to stay
She's a lone forsaken beauty and she don't trust no one
And I wish I was beside her but
I'm not there I'm gone

It's too hard to stay here and I don't want to leave
It's so hard for so few, you see, but she's hard, too hard to me
It's alone, it's a crime, the ways she mauls me around
But she don't phone to hate me but it's time to make her crown

Yes I believe that it's rightful, I believe it in my mind
I've been told, like I said before, I'll carry on when I'm blind
Yes , the soul gypsy told her, like I said, carry on
And I wish I was there to help her but
I'm not there I'm gone
