I Shall Be Released Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see my life come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say that every man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Some where so high above this wall

I see my life come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

You're youngest handsome man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
And all day long I hear him shout so loud
Just crying out that he was framed

I see my life come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released
