To Ramona      (Dylan)

Ramona come closer shut softly your watery eyes
The pangs of your sadness shall  pass as your senses will rise
But the flowers of the city thou breath like yet death like the at
There's no use in trying to deal with the dying
Though I can not explain that in rhymes

Your cracked country lips I still wish to kiss
Have to be by the touch of your skin
Your magnetic movements still capture the moments I'm in
It grieves my heart love to see you trying to be a part of a world
that just    don't exist
It's all just a scheme babe a vaccum  of  dreams that sucks you into
feeling like this

I've heard you say many times that your better than no-one
And no-one is better than you
If you really believe that you know you have nothing to win and
nothing to lose
From fixtures and forces and friends your sorrow does stem
They'll hype you & type & make you feel that you got to be just like

I'd forever talk to you but soon my words would turn into a
meaningless ring 
For deep in my heart there's no help I can bring
Everything passes everything changes just do what you think you should
Then someday maybe who knows baby I'll come and be crying to you
