Lyrics:
In the still of the night, in the world’s ancient light
Where wisdom grows up in strife
My bewildering brain, toils in vain
Through the darkness on the pathways of life
Each invisible prayer is like a cloud in the air
Tomorrow keeps turning around
We live and we die, we know not why
But I’ll be with you when the deal goes down

We eat and we drink, we feel and we think
Far down the street we stray
I laugh and I cry and I’m haunted by
Things I never meant nor wished to say
The midnight rain follows the train
We all wear the same thorny crown
Soul to soul, our shadows roll
And I’ll be with you when the deal goes down

Bob Dylan is a rare artist that has managed to transcend genre to become a universally praised songwriter, performer and musician of the 20th- and 21st-centuries. Starting out as a chronicler of social issues in the 1960s, Dylan has had true staying power with thirty-two studio albums released in 53 years – the most recent of which is 2015’s critically acclaimed Shadows in the Night.

    Where wisdom grows up in strife

    My bewildering brain, toils in vain

    Through the darkness on the pathways of life

    Each invisible prayer is like a cloud in the air

    Tomorrow keeps turning around

    We live and we die, we know not why

    But I'll be with you when the deal goes down

    We eat and we drink, we feel and we think

    Far down the street we stray

    I laugh and I cry and I'm haunted by

    Things I never meant nor wished to say

    The midnight rain follows the train

    We all wear the same thorny crown

    Soul to soul, our shadows roll

    And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

    The moon gives light and shines by night

    I scarcely feel the glow

    We learn to live and then we forgive

    O'er the road we're bound to go

    More frailer than the flowers, these precious hours

    That keep us so tightly bound

    You come to my eyes like a vision from the skies

    And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

    I picked up a rose and it poked through my clothes

    I followed the winding stream

    I heard a deafening noise, I felt transient joys

    I know they're not what they seem

    In this earthly domain, full of disappointment and pain

    You'll never see me frown

    I owe my heart to you, and that's sayin' it true

    And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

  • Do you ever think of the days when old tape recordings of a family were just memories of like the 70s or whatever and not always used behind dramatic, usually depressing music as a way to prove some artsy-fartsy ambiguous point? Like, it's just some rando family and their baby memories; it doesn't have to SO. DARN. DEPRESSING.

  • I love BD as much as any but what the hell is the freaky zombie and clown dancers to butterfly of Scarlett so trapped in the camera. i'd love to be w her in real person but the camera in the face feels uncomfortable. Epic song, so hauntingly eternal but shit who is the director. Creepy

    The midnight rain follows the train
    We all wear the same thorny crown
    Soul to soul, our shadows roll
    And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

    Well the moon gives light and shines by night
    And I scarcely feel the glow
    We learn to live and then we forgive
    Or the road we're bound to go
    More frailer than the flowers, these precious hours
    That keep us so tightly bound
    You come to my eyes like a vision from the skies

  • Please stop cross dressing and wearing my clothes Bob, especially since I have none. I'll be there with you when the deal goes down, but I don't see you here next to me. Ever. For you wear a real crown of gold and gems and jewels and love and admiration, unlike mine given to me by the "Must-Have-Been-The-Roses-But-I-Could-Not-Leave-Her-There" gang.

  • For the Devil aka God owns this establishment and who is dealing all the cards is GOD WHO CREATES ALL. Its rigged. The whole place. They are in business to make a profit which means more people lose than win, but that doesn't mean they don't want you to dream. It feeds off your dreams, your hopes, your wishes, your desires- and always has.
