Breaking up

Bob Dylan: „We better talk this over“

I think we better talk this over
Maybe when we both get sober
You’ll understand I’m only a man
Doing the best that I can.

This situation can only get rougher
Why should we needlesly suffer ?
Let’s call it a day go our own different way
Before we decay.

You don’t have to be afraid of looking into my face
We’ve done nothing to each other time will not erase.

I feel displaced, I got a low-down feeling
You have been two-faced, you been double-dealing
I took a chance, got caught in the trance
Of a downhill dance.

Oh child, why you wanna hurt me ?
I’m exiled you can’t convert me
I’m lost in the haze of your delicate ways
With both eyes glazed.

You don’t have to yearn for love, you don’t have to be alone
Somewhere in the univers there’s a place that you can call home.

I guess I’ll be leaving tomorrow
If I have to beg, steal or borrow
It’d be great to cross paths in a day and a half
Look at each other and laugh.

But I don’t think it’s liable to happen
Like the sound of one hand clapping
The vows that we kept are now broken and swept
Beneath the bed where we slept.
Don’t think of me and fantasize of what we never had
Be grateful for what we’ve shared together and be glad
Why should we got on watching each other through a telescope ?
Eventually we’ll hang ourselves on all this tangled rope.

Oh babe, time for a new transition
I wish I was a magician
I would wave a wand and tie back the bond
That we’ve both gone beyond.

Tim Hardin: „Don´t make Promises“

It seems the songs we’re singing
Are all about tomorrow
Tunes of promises you can’t keep
Ev’ry moment bringing
The love I can only borrow
You’re telling me lies in your sleep

Do you think I’m not aware of what you’re saying
Or why you’re saying it?
Is it hard to keep me where you want me staying?
Don’t go on betraying it
Don’t make promises you can’t keep

We had a chance to find it
Our time was now or never
You promised me things that I need
But then the things behind it
Took away the chance forever
You’re telling me lies in your sleep

Do you think I’m not aware of what you’re saying
Or why you’re saying it?
Is it hard to keep me where you want me staying?
Don’t go on betraying it
Don’t make promises you can’t keep
Don’t make promises you can’t keep

Grant Hart: „2541“

Jimmy gave us a number
and Jerry gave us a place to stay
and Billy got hold of a van and man,
we moved in the very next day

to 25 41
Big windows to let in the sun
25 41

well, I put down the money
and I picked up the keys
We had to keep the stove on all night long so the mice wouldn’t freeze

You put our names on the mailbox
and I put everything else in the past
It was the first place we had to ourselves, we didn’t know it would be the last

25 41
big windows to let in the sun
25 41

Now everything is over
Now everything is done
Everything’s in boxes, at 25 41

Things are so much different now
I’d say that the situation’s reversed
and it’ll probably not be the last time I have to be out by the first.

25 41
Big windows to let in the sun
