THIS DREAM OF YOU





THIS DREAM OF YOU





How long can I stay

In this nowhere cafe 'fore night turns into day?

I wonder why I'm so frightened of dawn?

All I have and all I know

Is this dream of you which keeps me living on

There's a moment when

All old things become new again

But that moment might have come and gone

All I have and all I know

Is this dream of you which keeps me living on

I look away but I keep seein' it

I don't want to believe but I keep believing it

Shadows dance upon the wall

Shadows that seem to know it all

Am I too blind to see?

Is my heart playing tricks on me?

I'm lost in the crowd, all my tears are gone

All I have and all I know

Is this dream of you which keeps me living on

Everything I touch seems to disappear

Everywhere I turn, you are always here

I'll run this race until my earthly death

I'll defend this place with my dying breath

From a cheerless room

In a curtained gloom, I saw a star from heaven fall

I turned and looked again but it was gone

All I have and all I know

Is this dream of you which keeps me living on

"THIS DREAM OF YOU" was released in April 2009 on the album
"Together Through Life", recorded in the fall of 2008.

The first live performance of "THIS DREAM OF YOU" was in Illinois, on July 2nd 2009.

The next two appearances of this gem were in October 2009 in California,
before it was performed in Oklahoma, and then during the third show in Chicago,
which also featured the excellent live debut of "IT'S ALL GOOD".
Two days after that "THIS DREAM OF YOU" appeared in Indiana,
once again in the same set as "IT'S ALL GOOD".

"THIS DREAM OF YOU" was not performed on stage at all in 2010 and 2011,
and it was not until August 2012 that Dylan chose to perform it again,
during his North American summer tour of 2012, this time playing on his grand piano,
at first in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and then a few weeks later in
Salisbury, Maryland, in Port Chester, New York (see mp3 below of this
sublime version), in Lewiston, New York, and in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

During the North American fall tour of 2012 "THIS DREAM OF YOU"
appeared only at the opening show in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
