Bob Dylans neuestes Meisterwerk 'Together Through Life' passt wunderbar zu den beiden anderen Platten, mit denen er uns in den letzten Jahren beschenkt hat ('Love and Theft', 2001, und 'Modern Times', 2006).

Der folgende Song ist aber der einzige der Platte, den Dylan vollständig selbst geschrieben hat, die anderen neun kamen in Gemeinschaftsarbeit mit Greatful Dead-Texter Robert Hunter zustande.

Bob Dylan - This Dream of You (2009)

How long can I stay
in this Nowhere Cafe
before night turns into day?
I wonder why I'm so frightened of dawn.
All I have and all I know
is this dream of you which keeps me living on.

There's a moment when
all old things become new again
but that moment might have come and gone.
All I have and all I know
is this dream of you which keeps me living on.

I look away but I keep seeing it.
I don't want to believe but I keep believing it.
Shadows dance upon the wall.
Shadows that seem to know it all.

Am I too blind to see?
Is my heart playing tricks on me?
I'm lost in the crowd, all my tears are gone.
All I have and all I know
is this dream of you which keeps me living on.

Everything I touch seems to disappear.
Everywhere I turn, you're always there.
I'll run my race until my earthly death.
I'll defend this place with my final breath.

From a cheerless room
in a curtain gloom, I saw a star from Heaven fall.
I turned and looked again but it was gone.
All I have and all I know
is this dream of you which keeps me living on.
