It's not dark yet by Bob Dylan from the 'Time out of mind' album

by annie
(wales, u.k.)

This song has a feel about it that the singer is going back over his life, and it is about to end.....but.....it's not dark yet!!!

Which can be interpreted as not quite buried. Listen to it ....
has a nice 'feel'. I have asked that it be played at my funeral at the point of my burial. Annie





Lyrics:
Shadows are falling and I been here all day
Its too hot to sleep and time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
Ive still got the scars that the sun/son? didnt/let me? heal
Theres not even room enough to be anywhere
Its not dark yet, but its getting there

Well my sense of humanity is going down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing, theres been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writin what was in her mind
I just dont see why I should even care
Its not dark yet, but its getting there

Well I been to london and I been to gay paris
I followed the river and I got to the sea
Ive been down to the bottom of a whirlpool of lies
I aint lookin for nothin in anyones eyes
Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
Its not dark yet, but its getting there

I was born here and Ill die here, against my will
I know it looks like Im movin but Im standin still
Every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
I cant even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Dont even hear the murmur of a prayer
Its not dark yet, but its getting there
