"Most of the Time" as written by Francis Dominic Nicholas Rossi and Robert Young....
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't make it all match up
I can hold my own
I can deal with the situation
Right down to the bone
I can survive,
And 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 halfway content
Most of the time
I know exactly where 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

    General Commentit's not the end of the greiving period. he is talking about how he is over his girl. but he's not. he is lying to imself. that's why he says all that stuff most of the time. he still loves her, and can't get over her. he never gets ver he that's the problem.

    General CommentLove this song. Like fastsingerz says hes trying to convince himself that hes over this girl but he knows hes not, just easier to say your over them than to actually be there.

    General CommentGreat song. I heard it for the first time on High Fidelity, which is a great film and even better book. This song reminds me of what it's like to feel the pain of separating.

    General Commentsophie zelmani does a great cover of this song on the soundtrack to masked and anonymous. anytime i hear any version of this song, either dylan's, or zelmani's cover, or ani difranco's cover, i stop in my tracks. it's one of those songs that everyone can relate to at some point in their lives.

    General Commenti also heard it in high fidelity
    one thing i always liked about bob dylan was he never tried to make things seen "pretty" he just told it like it was

    General Commentit reminds me of an old Sinatra song, I don't know the name, but maybe you do:

    I get along without you very well, of course I do......
