IT'S A WONDER LOVE EVERY ONE THAT YOU TAKE
IT'S A MODERN ONE EVERY ONE THAT YOU TAKE
A GOOD INTENT BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOU'RE PLAYING WITH FIRE
WHAT YOU WANT YOU JUST TAKE AND YOU TAKE IT TOO FAR
AND NOW YOU'VE GONE TO COLLECT A NEW LAMB
I MAY BE WRONG BUT I KNOW THAT I AM
WITH EVERY SUCKER YOU KEEP UP YOUR ACT
I HOPE YOU WAKE IN A COLD SWEAT WHEN THINKING OF PAST
I'VE FOUND THESE DAYS I HOLD THE REINS
GROWN FROM MY MISTAKE
WE'RE ALL THE SAME BACK HOME WHERE OUR YESTERDAYS ARE GONE
YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE GONE YOU KNOW IT WAS TEMPTATION
I GUESS IT'S ALL IN MY HEAD, YOU'D RATHER STRAY THAN STAY HOME
YOU KNOW IT'S TIME TO GIVE YOURSELF TO PROSPER
WHY'D YOU TRADE ME FOR A DAY OF LAUGHTER?
YOU'VE CAUSED ME PAIN FOR TWENTY DAYS
LOST SO MUCH I SAY TODAY
MY BRAIN SO ACHES AND MY BLOOD IS PAIN
WHEN YOU BREAK MY HEART FOR THE DAY

    General CommentAmazing lyrics, Dylan is a lyrical genius.

    The "You shouldn't have gone..." part gets me every time, I'm not sure I've ever heard that emotion captured so well in a song, save for Pearl Jam's "Black"
