All my day is spent dealing with other people. When I come home I like it to be empty. The presence of others in my house kind of annoys me. I love coming home and shutting the doors. I feel brain dead. I'm relatively available, but not to live with.

All That Matters Simply Come Home And Look At Us

straight in the eye

what we did, they come home and look at us

straight in the eye
feeding us morsels of guilt, and asking us again

why?

we try to look at them straight in the eye too and we justify
ourselves, with

it was a necessity, the inevitable, and all with the face of the human
being
bones and flesh and hair and skin
with balls or no balls
will just do the same: kill to save oneself, the doctrine of self-defense,
that innate self which must preserve itself
and always ready to strike
when in danger, not even running, but keeping itself
unafraid, to stand firm and tall and
unmoved,

they all come today, like her chickens, but i see them all
snakes, and scorpions, and
even fire-breathing dragons and witches and
wolves and blood sucking leeches

i do not run, i keep myself composed to all these now,
i am ready, i have prepared myself,

if they ask for reason, i give them the reasons,
if they don't and they just stare, i too must stare without blinking
i am a brave man
i am an honest man
i harmed no one
and no one harms me now.

i am at home and if they, of the past, and today, live with me,
i always have the room to spare, and some padlocks too
and iron bars, and air tight spaces

Won't You Come Home (And Talk To A Stranger)

Well I was out a drinkin' with a couple of friends of mine
When the bartender handed me the telephone
Said there's a wife on the line
I told her I was just a drinkin' with a couple of buddies I knew
but she told me in a few short words
Just what she wanted me to do
She said won't you come home and talk to a stranger
You might even make yourself a friend
She said won't you come home and talk to a stranger
It's the only place in days you haven't been
Well I sat there about an hour talkin' with the rest of the guys
When she walked through that front door
She had get home in her eyes
She said you've danced and talked with every woman in town but me
And if you'd just come around the house you might like my company
She said won't you come home and talk to a stranger
You might even make yourself a friend
She said won't you come home and talk to a stranger
It's the only place in days you haven't been
She said won't you come home and talk to a stranger
You might even make yourself a friend
She said won't you come home and talk to a stranger
It's the only place in days you haven't been

When You Come Home

All will be right when you come home, dear lad,
But oh, 'tis long of coming that you are!
Everything's wrong with all the world and sad;
There are so many hurt in this long war,
So many missing, who will never come,
Lying out in the rain and in the cold.
I shall forget it all when you come home,
I shall forget the lonesome things they told.

There's something, something sad, that troubles me.
Beats like the rain upon my frightened heart;
A tale about a girl, the thing might be,
Whispered in corners, secret and apart
How he was killed and how she never knew
Because God put a small cloud on her mind,
And how she waited the black winters through
And the wet summers; surely God was kind!

I took a daisy from the garden-bed
And plucked the petals, one by one, to tell
When I and my true lover should be wed,
This year: Next year: Never: the petals fell
And stopped at Never. But it could not guess,
The foolish daisy, what true love I had.
I turned from daisies and I plucked heartsease
To rest my heart on and be safe and glad.

Everything's wrong, Love, since you went away,
Such a queer world when all the boys are gone,
And there is no one left but old and grey,
Women and children, frightened and alone.
Sometimes the tale is crying at my heart
Of that poor girl. Maybe 'twas but a dream.
When you come home the shadows will depart,
The lonesome dreams die off in morning gleam.

When I Come Home To You

(ransford)
Im telling you girl
That Im coming home to you
I hate to say this
But I know youve been untrue
Just stop your foolin
Come on and hold me
When I come home to you
When I come home to you
Its plain to see love
Isnt something new to you
You couldnt be loved
Cause youve never known the truth
About the lies
You tell to me
When I come home to you
When I come home to you
Comin home isnt good for me
I know
But the way that you look at me
I know
That Ive got to come on home
And take you in my arms
Break
Comin home isnt good for me
I know
But the way that you look at me
I know
That Ive got to come on home
And take you in my arms
Im telling you girl
That Im coming home to you
I hate to say this
But I know youve been untrue
Just stop your foolin
Come on and hold me
When I come home to you
Yeh
When I come home to you
Woa wo
When I come home to you

I tell her these things when I come home

So much
Has been taken for the quest of something original

Time squeezes to something interesting
Something original

I am carried away

I look out this glass window
Seeing the sea

Farther blue nearer me is brownish
The river is flooded the rain poured wildly in the mountain

A blue green car passes by below
A woman with a basket of something
(I cannot see clearly)
Holds her boy like a twig of a tree

The wind must be blowing hard
There could be typhoon

I see these happening, I am from here. I live here.


I tell her these things when I come home

Closing the Doors

Closing the doors
I am shutting all the doors
Will be walking totally alone since not even a friend will get the entry
In my life, nobody can ever again sneak
I am closing the doors and do not ask me why?
You let go of my friendship
Sadly, you will never find a friend like me
I am closing the doors and I am not expressing this due to any hate
I was scared of letting in even a friend in my life
However, I did let in
Although, at the end even this friendship proved as wrong
Will never let anybody, sneak in.

And the life is a journey but not a rat race!

I understand that I cannot run like a horse
And that would be much appreciated
Merits for you Sir!
My rickety stable is much safer than the racecourse.
But I have a small question,
Why in my peaceful dreams
They try to pierce my bare feet
And wear the horseshoes?

*[ When I come home after work she goes out for struggle and when she comes back I go out again, the old ragged station Master who knows about our complicated schedule and he sees us everyday with his dim lantern.
These two shuttle service trains are wearied now and when we go for shunting? ]

All Saints Day

Here comes sue and she looks crazy
Skipping down the hillside gaily
Looking like the flowers that bloom in may
Wont you make your reservation?
I will meet you at the station
Wont you come and see me, all saints day?
Follow my lead, it is no wonder, I seem to be so high
Living my dreams the way I ought to
As the days go rolling by
See me strolling through the meadow
With you baby by my side
Wont you come and see me, all saints day?
See the streamline blue horizon
With you baby by the way
Wont you come and see me, all saints day?
You can make your reservation
I will meet you at the station
When you come to see me, all saints day
When you come to see me, all saints day
When you come to see me, all saints day.

They Shall Come Home

ALTHOUGH they sleep in alien graves afar,
Where, restlessly, chill winds we know not roam,
When Peace has laid the cruel waves of war
They shall come home!
Their spirit cannot die, though they be dead,
The young, the brave, the noble, and the dear!
And we shall know by some sweet influence shed
That they are near.
Because of them we shall go unafraid
And front the Future, strong and valorous;
They shall come home, when most we need their aid,
And hearten us.
What soul we owned we knew not till they died;
Upon high nationhood they set the seal;
The crude ore taken from the mountainside
They wrought to steel.
What though they passed in all their pride and power
With steadfast tread adown the sunset-track
To Glory's gates? — in memory's hallowed hour
They shall come back.
And they shall give, in place of heart-distress,
To kith and kin, tear-worn and sorrowing sore,
A sense of reverence and of sacredness
Not known before.
What though they sleep in unfamiliar earth,
Where, restlessly, chill winds we know not roam,
To stir our blood to deeds of starry worth
They shall come home!

When the Boys Come Home

There's a happy time coming,
When the boys come home.
There's a glorious day coming,
When the boys come home.
We will end the dreadful story
Of this treason dark and gory
In a sunburst of glory,
When the boys come home.

The day will seem brighter
When the boys come home,
For our hearts will be lighter
When the boys come home.
Wives and sweethearts will press them
In their arms and caress them,
And pray God to bless them,
When the boys come home.

The thinned ranks will be proudest
When the boys come home,
And their cheer will ring the loudest
When the boys come home.
The full ranks will be shattered,
And the bright arms will be battered,
And the battle-standards tattered,
When the boys come home.

Their bayonets may be rusty,
When the boys come home,
And their uniforms dusty,
When the boys come home.
But all shall see the traces
Of battle's royal graces,
In the brown and bearded faces,
When the boys come home.

Our love shall go to meet them,
When the boys come home,
To bless them and to greet them,
When the boys come home;
And the fame of their endeavor
Time and change shall not dissever
From the nation's heart forever,
When the boys come home.

The Circle Is Small

Its alright for some but not alright for me
When the one that Im lovin slips around
You think its fine to do things I cannot see
And youre doin it to me
Baby cant you see that I know how it is
I can see it in your eyes and feel it in the way you kiss my lips
I can hear it in your voice whenever we are talking like this
I can see the way you look when his name is mentioned and I die
I can watch the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you close your eyes
Its alright for some but not alright for me
When the one that Im lovin cant be found
The city where we live might be quite large
But the circle is small
Why not tell us all and then all of us will know
I can see it in your eyes and feel it in the way you kiss my lips
I can hear it in your voice whenever we are talking like this
I can see the way you look when his name is mentioned and I die
I can watch the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you close your eyes
Its alright to leave but not alright to lie
When you come home and you cant say where youve been
You think its fine to do things I cannot see
And youre doin it to me
Baby cant you see that I know how it is
I can see it in your eyes and feel it in the way you kiss my lips
I can hear it in your voice whenever we are talking like this
I can see the way you look when his name is mentioned and I die
I can watch the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you close your eyes

I Was Young When I Left Home

Written by Bob Dylan
Recorded on the Minnesota Hotel Tape (Dec 22, 1961)
Tabbed by Eyolf strem
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Open G tuning (DGdgbd')
G 000000
G' 000430
D 000210
C 002010
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I sorta made it up on a train. Huh, oh I'm here. This must be good for somebody, this sad song. I know it's good for somebody. If it ain't for me, it's good for somebody. I just talked about it, huh huh.
G
I was young when I left home
G' D C
and I been a-rambling 'round.
D
And I never wrote a letter to my home.
G G' D C
To my home, lord to my home.
D G
And I never wrote a letter to my home.
It was just the other day,
I was bringing home my pay
when I met an old friend I used to know.
Said your mother's dead and gone,
baby sister's all gone wrong
and your daddy needs you home right away.
Not a shirt on my back,
not a penny on my name.
But I can't go home thisaway.
Thisaway, lord lord lord.
And I can't go home thisaway.
If you miss the train I'm on,
count the days I'm gone.
You will hear that whistle blow a hundred miles.
Hundred miles, honey baby, lord lord lord,
and you'll hear that whistle blow a hundred miles.
I'm playing on a track,
ma would come and whoop me back
on them trussels down by old Jim McKay's.
When I pay the debt I owe to the commissary store,
I will pawn my watch and chain and go home.
Go home, lord lord lord.
I will pawn my watch and chain and go home.
Used to tell ma sometimes
when I see them riding blind,
gonna make me a home out in the wind.
In the wind, lord in the wind.
Make me a home out in the wind.
I don't like it in the wind,
I go back home again,
but I can't go home thisaway.
Thisaway, lord lord lord,
and I can't go home thisaway.
I was young when I left home
and I been all rambling 'round.
And I never wrote a letter to my home.
To my home lord lord lord.
And I never wrote a letter to my home.

Come Home

A slow confusion in my mind
words left unspoken
problems yet to be solved.
A sharp pain twisting in my heart
all haunt me everyday, all live inside me.
I wake up at night crying,
I wish you could be here,
I wish i could see you
Just come back home
where you belong.
This hole in my heart,
needs you to fill it.
I need you in my life
to hold me in your arms,
to wipe away my tears,
An to fill the empty spaces in me.
I miss near and dear.
Just come home and stay for good.

Something Fishy

There must be something fishy going on
You said you were goin on a fishin trip with some old friend
You said that youd be home tonight somewhere around ten
Well here it is, its two oclock and youre still not at home
I think theres something fishy goin on
I think that Im a sucker thats swallowing your line
I try to make myself believe that its all in my mind
But you never asked me if Id like to go along
So there must be something fishy goin on
Chorus:
Theres something fishy goin on
On these fishin trips youre goin on
Im gettin tired of stayin home alone
Some night when you come home and discover that Im gone
You can bet theres something fishy goin on
I guess some large-mouth bass left that lipstick on your shirt
I dont think youre a fisherman, honey
I think youre a flirt
Well if youre goin fishin then why dont you bring em home
I think theres something fishy goin on
Repeat chorus
Tag:
Yes, you can bet theres something fishy goin on

Sweet Lucy

I can hear those bedsprings a’squeakin’
From halfway down the block
And how come it gets so quiet, lil’ mama,
When my key rattles in the lock

“You say you ain’t misbehaving” sweet Lucie
But that ain’t the answer I want
Who’s that going out the back door lil’ mama
Whenever I come in the front?

How come your hair’s so pretty
How come you got gloss on your lips
How come’s your eyes are all mascarey
Why’s there sweaty fingerprints on your hips?

I beginning to suspect you might be cheatin’
Imma beginning’ to have my doubt
Imma beginning’ to wonder who’s comin’ in Sweet mamma
The minute Im goin’ out

I know this ol’ dog shouldn’t be out wagging his tail
Getting’ drunk til’ three in the A.M
But when I come home and you ain’t alone
All I wanta say is DAYUM!

Woman why can’t you understand
That you all on this earth to please us
Don’t wanna cause a ruckus or have to raise my hand
Imma religious man, “Sweet Jesus”

Sweet Lucie, I know Imma a little man
And sometimes Im not so hot
But what’s just a little bit to you, lil’ Mama
To another could be a whole lot

So let’s both of us stop misbehaving’ Lil’ Mama
Maybe that’s what we both of us want
So there won’t be anybody sneakin’ out the back door
Whenever Im comin’ in the front!

Apology

Why do I write today?

The beauty of
the terrible faces
of our nonentites
stirs me to it:

colored women
day workers—
old and experienced—
returning home at dusk
in cast off clothing
faces like
old Florentine oak.

Also

the set pieces
of your faces stir me
leading citizens—
but not
in the same way.
