Bob Dylan - "I I" lyrics

Been so long since a strange woman has slept in my bed.
Look how sweet she sleeps, how free must be her dreams.

In another lifetime she must have owned the world, or been faithfully wed

To some righteous king who wrote psalms beside moonlit streams.

I and i

In creation where ones nature neither honors nor forgives.

I and i

One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives.

Think Ill go out and go for a walk,

Not much happenin here, nothin ever does.
Besides, if she wakes up now, shell just want me to talk

I got nothin to say, specially about whatever was.

I and i

In creation where ones nature neither honors nor forgives.

I and i

One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives.

Took an untrodden path once, where the swift dont win the race,
It goes to the worthy, who can divide the word of truth.

Took a stranger to teach me, to look into justices beautiful face
And to see an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

In creation where ones nature neither honors nor forgives.
I and i

I and i

One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives.

Outside of two men on a train platform theres nobody in sight,
Theyre waiting for spring to come, smoking down the track.
The world could come to an end tonight, but thats all right.

She should still be there sleepin when I get back.

I and i

I and i
In creation where ones nature neither honors nor forgives.

One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives.

Noontime, and Im still pushin myself along the road, the darkest part,

Into the narrow lanes, I cant stumble or stay put.

Someone else is speakin with my mouth, but Im listening only to my heart.

Ive made shoes for everyone, even you, while I still go barefoot.

I and i

In creation where ones nature neither honors nor forgives.

I and i

One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives.
