BOB DYLAN lyrics : "Don't Fall Apart On Me Tonight"


Just a minute before you leave girl
Just a minute before you touch the door

What is it that you're trying to achieve, girl ?
Do you think we can talk about it some more ?
You know, the streets are filled with vipers

Who've lost all ray of hope
You know, it ain't even safe no more
In the palace of the Pope.


Don't fall apart on me tonight
I just don't think that I could handle it

Don't fall apart on me tonight
Yesterday's just a memory
Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be

And I need you, yeah.

Come over here from over there, girl

Sit down here, you can have my chair
I can't see us going anywhere, girl
The only place open is a thousand miles away and I can't take you there

I wish I'd have been a doctor
Maybe I'd have saved some life that had been lost
Maybe I'd have done some good in the world

'Stead of burning every bridge I crossed.

Don't fall apart on me tonight

I just don't think that I could handle it
Don't fall apart on me tonight
Yesterday's just a memory

Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
And I need you, yeah.


I ain't too good at conversation, girl
So you might not know exactly how I feel
But if I could, I'd bring bring you to the mountaintop, girl

And build you a house made out of stainless steel
But it's like I'm stuck inside a painting
That's hanging in the Louvre

My throat start to tickle and my nose itches
But I know that I can't move.
Don't fall apart on me tonight

I just don't think that I could handle it
Don't fall apart on me tonight
Yesterday's gone but the past lives on

Tomorrow's just one step beyond
And I need you, yeah.


Who are these people who are walking towards you
Do you know them or will there be a fight ?
With their humorless smiles so easy to see through

Can they tell you what's wrong from what's right ?

Do you remember St. James Street

Where you blew Jackie P.'s mind ?
You were so fine, Clark Gable would have fell at your feet
And laid his life on the line.


Let's try to get beneath the surface waste, girl
No more booby traps and bombs

No more decadence and charm
No more affection that's misplaced, girl
No more mudcake creatures lying in your arms

What about that millionaire with the drumsticks in his pants ?
He looked so baffled and so bewildered
When he played and we didn't dance.


Don't fall apart on me tonight
I just don't think that I could handle it

Don't fall apart on me tonight
Yesterday's just a memory
Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be

And I need you, yeah.
