Bob Dylan – Dark Eyes Lyrics

Bob Dylan – Dark Eyes Lyrics

Oh the gentlemen are talking and the midnight moon is on the riverside
They’re drinking up and walking and it is time for me to slide
I live in another world, where life and death are memorized
Where the earth is strung with lovers pearls and all I see are a dark eyes

A cock is crowing far away and another soldiers deep in prayer
Some mothers child has gone astray, she can’t find him anywhere
But I can hear another drum beating for the dead that rise
Whom natures beast fears as they come and all I see are a dark eyes

They tell me to be discreet for all intended purposes
They tell me revenge is sweet and from where they stand I’m sure it is
But I feel nothing for their game where beauty goes unrecognized
And all I feel is heat and flame and all I see are a dark eyes

Oh the French girl shes in paradise and a drunken man is at the wheel
Hunger pays a heavy price to the falling Gods of speed and steel
Oh time is short and the days are sweet
And passion rules the arrow that flies
A million faces at my feet, but all I see are a dark eyes
