They sat together in the park as the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him he felt a spark tingle to his bones
It was when he felt alone and wished that he'd gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

They walked down by the old canal a little confused I remember well
And then they stopped in a strange hotel with the neon burning bright
He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train
And moving with a simple twist of fate

Saxophone some place nearby played she was walking on by at the arcade
As a light burst through a bead of shade
But as he was waking she dropped a coin into a cup of a blind man
That became and both got a bout of a simple twist of fate

He woke up and the room was bear, he didn't see he anywhere
He told himself he didn't care, he pushed the window open wide
He felt an emptiness inside too
He could just not relate but by a simple twist of fate

He hears the ticking of the clocks small waves whisper to the rocks
He hunts her down by the waterfront docks
Where the sailors all come in perhaps he'll see her once again
How long must he wait once more for a simple twist of fate

People tell me it's a crime to feel to much at any one time
All it cost me was a dime but the bells refuse to ring
He was born in the spring but I was born to late to blame
It on a simple twist of fate

Bob Dylan
