I And I
Bob Dylan

Been so long since a strange woman has slept in my bed
Look how sweet she sleeps, how free must be her dreams
In another lifetime she must have owned the world, or been faithfully wed
To some righteous king who wrote psalms beside moonlit streams

I and I
In creation where oneís nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives

Think Iíll go out and go for a walk
Not much happeniní here, nothiní ever does
Besides, if she wakes up now, sheíll just want me to talk
I got nothiní to say, íspecially about whatever was

I and I
In creation where oneís nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives

Took an untrodden path once, where the swift donít win the race
It goes to the worthy, who can divide the word of truth
Took a stranger to teach me, to look into justiceís beautiful face
And to see an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth

I and I
In creation where oneís nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives

Outside of two men on a train platform thereís nobody in sight
Theyíre waiting for spring to come, smoking down the track
The world could come to an end tonight, but thatís all right
She should still be there sleepiní when I get back

I and I
In creation where oneís nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives

Noontime, and Iím still pushiní myself along the road, the darkest part
Into the narrow lanes, I canít stumble or stay put
Someone else is speakiní with my mouth, but Iím listening only to my heart
Iíve made shoes for everyone, even you, while I still go barefoot

I and I
In creation where oneís nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives
