Oh, Bob Dylan. I hate and I love

Anyone that knows me probably knows quite well that Dylan is basically my nigga. That's right I said it and I'll say it again. I'd follow him to Hell if I needed (even though I don't know how that'd be possible, the man is a saint...right?).

I hate him right now for "Dreamin' of You". It's an outtake from Time Out of Mind I think and it's being officially released on the 8th in his Bootleg Series, Tell Tale Signs. If you aren't hip, the "bootleg series" is basically Bob gettin' a check without having to do much. It's a compilation of unreleased/unheard songs and I've heard they range between "godly" and "put that shit back on the shelf!" I don't buy Dylan compilations, only albums *shrug* I can't be dishin' out money to this fool forever...he's already got me chained to the fence post.

Anyway, "Dreamin' of You" is like the newest single from Tell Tale Signs. Please tell me why I can't stop blasting this shit at least 5 times a day like I'm gonna die without it? I hate you Dylan. This ain't even cool.

And look at these lyrics. I'm ILL.

The light in this place is really bad
Like being in the bottom of a stream
Any minute now, I'm expecting to wake up from a dream
Miss so much the softest touch
Like the grave of some child
Who neither wept nor smiled
I'm hiding my faith in the rain

I've been dreamin' of you
That's all I do
And it's driving me insane

Somewhere dawn is breaking
Light is streaking across the floor
Church bells are ringing
I wonder who they're ringing for
Travel under any star
You'll see me wherever you are
The shadowy past is so vague and so vast,
I'm sleeping in the palace of pain

I've been dreamin' of you
That's all I do
But it's driving me insane

Maybe they'll get me, maybe they won't
But whatever, it won't be tonight
I wish your hand was in mine right now,
We could go where the moon is wide
For years they had me locked in a cage,
Then they threw me onto the stage
Somethings just last longer then you thought they would
And they never ever explain

I'm dreamin' of you
That's all I do
And it's driving me insane

Well, I eat when I'm hungry
Drink when I'm dry
Live my life on the square
Even if the flesh falls off my face
It won't matter as long as you're there
Feel like a ghost in love
Underneath the heavens above
Feel further away then I ever did before
Feel further than I can take

Dreamin' of you, that's all I do,
But it's driving me insane

Everything in the way is so shy like the day
In queer and unusual form
Spirals of golden haze here in there in a blaze
Like beams of light in a star.
Maybe you're here or maybe you weren't
Maybe you touched somebody and got burned
The silent sun has got me on the run
Burning a hole in my brain

I'm dreamin' of you,
That's all I do
But it's driving me insane.
