lyrics

Why'd you run away from the life you had
From the life that you'd been given
Was the distant voice of destiny calling you
To escape from your prison

Seventeen times a man, sixteen times a fool
What was eating at you?
Did a seed of desire for freedom inside you grow
Each time they brought you back home?
Each time they brought you back home?

Oh Dylan, where do you begin?
Oh Dylan, where do you begin?

It's hard for the songbird to find his way
When the absent mind of sorrow settles in
Like a cold sheet of ice that lays upon the winters ground
It blankets over the last of the flame

As the weary wanderer walks through the night
He closes his eyes to listen
To the whistling midnight song that will only play
For those who have lost their way
For those who have lost their way

Oh Dylan, where do you begin?
Oh Dylan, where do you begin?

The ship of time is sailing across the sea
The sea that is your life
Will your ship make it to the sunny shores of certainty
Or sink before your ship comes in?
Or sink before your ship comes in?

Oh Dylan, where do you begin?
Oh Dylan, where do you begin?
