where teardrops fall lyrics – bob dylan

far away where the soft winds blow,
far away from it all,
there is a place you go
where teardrops fall.

far away in the stormy night,
far away and over the wall,
you are there in the flickering light
where teardrops fall.

we banged the drum slowly
and played the fife lowly
you know the song in my heart
bridge: in the turning of twilight
in the shadows of moonlight
you can show me a new place to start

i’ve torn my clothes and i’ve drained the cup
strippin’ away at it all,
thinking of you when the sun comes up
where teardrops fall.

by rivers of blindness,
in love and with kindness
we could hold up a toast if we meet
bridge: to the cuttin’ of fences
to sharpen the senses
that linger in the fireball heat.

roses are red, violets are blue
and time is beginning to crawl,
i just might have to come see you
where teardrops fall.
