Bob Dylan's
Bob Dylan and Suze

Born in Time

In the lonely night

In the blinking stardust of a pale blue light

You're comin' thru to me in black and white

When we were made of dreams.


You're blowing down the shaky street,

You're hearing my heart beat

In the record breaking heat

Where we were born in time.


Bridge #1:

Not one more night, not one more kiss,

Not this time baby, no more of this,

Takes too much skill, takes too much will,

It's revealing.

You came, you saw, just like the law

You married young, just like your ma,

You tried and tried, you made me slide

You left me reelin' with this feelin'.


On the rising curve

Where the ways of nature will test every nerve,

You won't get anything you don't deserve

Where we were born in time.


Bridge #2:

You pressed me once, you pressed me twice,

You hang the flame, you'll pay the price,

Oh babe, that fire

Is still smokin'.

You were snow, you were rain

You were striped, you were plain,

Oh babe, truer words

Have not been spoken or broken.


In the hills of mystery,

In the foggy web of destiny,

You can have what's left of me,

Where we were born in time.
