    "Long And Wasted Years" Lyrics

    Bob Dylan

    It's been such a long, long time
    Since we loved each other and our hearts were true
    One time, for one brief day, I was the man for you

    Last night I heard you talking in your sleep
    Saying things you shouldn't say
    Oh baby, you just might have to go to jail someday

    Is there a place we can go?
    Is there anybody we can see?
    Maybe, it's the same for you as it is for me

    I ain't seen my family in twenty years
    That ain't easy to understand
    They may be dead by now
    I lost track of them after they lost their land

    Shake it up baby twist and shout
    You know what it's all about
    What you doing out there in the sun anyway
    Don't you know the sun can burn your brains right out

    My enemy crashed into the dust
    Stopped dead in his tracks and he lost his lust
    He was run down hard and he broke apart
    He died in shame, he had an iron heart

    I wear dark glasses to cover my eyes
    There're secrets in them I can't disguise
    Come back baby, if I hurt your feelings I apologize

    Two trains running side by side
    Forty miles wide, down the Eastern line
    You don't have to go, I just came to you cause you're a friend of mine

    I think that when my back was turned
    The whole world behind me burned
    It's been awhile since we walked down that long, long aisle

    We cried on that cold and frosty morn
    We cried because our souls were torn
    So much for tears, so much for these long and wasted years
