White ladder
Water and wine
Forever
Crying oh time
Don't wanna
Feel tonight

There's no rhyme or reason to love
This sweet love

White river
Thunder and war
How many
Time, oh no
Don't wanna
Feel no more

There's no rhyme or reason to love
This sweet, sweet love

To the night another body
To the night another name
To the night another Valentine
Burning flame

To the night another body
To the night another name
To the night another Valentine
A burning flame

Tall order
Tremble inside
Forever
Crying oh man, yeah, yeah, yeah
Don't wanna
Feel tonight

There's no rhyme or reason to love
This sweet, sweet love

To the night another body
To the night another name
To the night another Valentine
Burning flame

To the night another body
To the night another name
To the night another Valentine
A burning flame

To the night another body
To the night another name
To the night another Valentine
Burning flame

White ladder
Water and wine
Don't wanna feel tonight

    General CommentOkay, so what exactly did Dylan mean? I think this song represents someone who is pretty f**ked up on substances. David Gray has made no big secret of his involvement with such ("Betty Ford, won't you be my valentine?"). "Don't wanna feel tonight?" Most of us are familiar with the perfect solution to that problem. White ladder could be cocaine. I am not condemning Gray here. He simply has a great way of putting feelings into songs. This one is about forgetting.
