Bob Dylan - To Ramona


Ramona, come closer
Shut softly your watery eyes
The pangs of your sadness
Will pass as your senses will rise

The flowers of the city
Though breathlike, get deathlike sometimes
And there’s no use in tryin’
To deal with the dyin’
Though I cannot explain that in lines.

Your cracked country lips
I still wish to kiss
As to be by the strength of you skin
Your magnetic movements
Still capture the minutes I’m in

But it grieves my heart, love
To see you tryin’ to be a part of
A world that doesn’t exist
It’s all just a dream, babe
A vacuum, a scheme, babe
That sucks you into feelin’ like this.

I can see that your head
Has been twisted and fed
With worthless foam from the mouth
I can tell you are torn
Between stayin’ and returnin’ on
Back to the South

You’ve been fooled into thinking
The finishin’ end is at hand
Yet there’s no one to beat you
No one to defeat you
'Cept the thoughts of yourself feeling bad

I’ve heard you say many times
You’re better than no one
And no one is better than you

If you really believe that
You know you got
Nothing to win and nothing to lose
From fixtures and forces and friends
Your sorrow does stem
That hype you and type you
Making you feel like
You gotta be just like them.

I’d forever talk to you
But soon my words
Would turn into a meaningless ring
For deep in my heart
I know there is no help I can bring

Just that everything passes
And everything changes
Just do what you think that you should do
And who knows, maybe
someday, baby

I’ll come and be cryin’ to you.

sono pessima, devo sempre dire tutto quello che penso, è sempre stato così,
mi ricordo all’asilo quando mia madre mi venne a prendere e la maestra le disse “sua figlia dice tutto quello che le passa per la testa!”
