“Most of the time
I don't cheat on myself, I don't run and hide,
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside.”

(Bob Dylan)


A song brimming with wisdom, maturity, happiness, authenticity and determination. Blissful sounds creep in around the edges from various instruments as you sense his joy. . . as well as the echos of painful memories he has been in the process of putting behind him. You can also sense his brooding honesty, as he repeats that all is well not all of the time but. . . well, most of the time. Simon Rees, March 2007


Most of the Time

Bob Dylan, 1989

Most of the time
I'm clear focused all around,
Most of the time
I can keep both feet on the ground,
I can follow the path, I can read the signs,
Stay right with it, when the road unwinds,
I can handle whatever I stumble upon,
I don't even notice she's gone,
Most of the time.

Most of the time
It's well understood,
Most of the time
I wouldn't change it if I could,
I can make it all match up, I can hold my own,
I can deal with the situation right down to the bone,
I can survive, I can endure
And I don't even think about her
Most of the time.

Most of the time
My head is on straight,
Most of the time
I'm strong enough not to hate,
I don't build up illusion 'till it makes me sick,
I ain't afraid of confusion no matter how thick,
I can smile in the face of mankind,
Don't even remember what her lips felt like on mine
Most of the time.

Most of the time
She ain't even in my mind,
I wouldn't know her if I saw her
She's that far behind.
Most of the time
I can't even be sure
If she was ever with me
Or if I was ever with her.

Most of the time
I'm halfways content,
Most of the time
I'd know exactly whether it all went,
I don't cheat on myself, I don't run and hide,
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside,
I don't compromise and I don't pretend,
I don't even care if I ever see her again
Most of the time.
