Born in Time Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

In the lonely night, in the blinking stardust
Of a pale blue light
You're coming through to me in black and white
When we were made of dreams

You're blowin' down a shaky street
You're hearing my heart beat
In the record breaking heat
Where we were born in time

Not one more night, not one more kiss
And not this time babe, no more of this
Takes too much skill, takes too much of will
It's too revealing

You came, you saw just like the law
You married young just like your ma
You tried and tried, you made me slide
You left me reeling with this feeling

On the rising curve
Where the ways of nature will test every nerve
You don't get anything you don't deserve
Where we were born in time

You pressed me once, you pressed me twice
You hung the blade you'll pay the price
Oh babe, that fire
Is still smoking

You were snow, you were rain
You were striped, you were plain
Oh babe, truer words
Have not been spoken or broken

If there's a mystery
In the foggy world of destiny
You can have what's left of me
Where we were born in time
