i shall be released


i watched "the last waltz" on vh1 classic tonite and now "i shall be released" will be stuck in my head for days!! what an incredible tune. i'm not really sure what dylan's inspiration for the song was, but i know what *i* think of when i hear it, and after all....isn't that what music is about? ......letting the music take us to a place where we feel, react, and learn a bit more about ourselves than we knew before we heard it? one of our greatest gifts is music, and thank GOD for it. i also have to give a big shout out to 'the band' for "the weight" because it's as a result of that song that i met my dear friend, ed, who means soooooo much to me!!

They say ev'rything can be replaced,

Yet ev'ry distance is not near.

So I remember ev'ry face

Of ev'ry man who put me here.

I see my light come shining

From the west unto the east

.Any day now, any day now,

I shall be released.


They say ev'ry man needs protection,

They say ev'ry man must fall.

Yet I swear I see my reflection

Some place so high above this wall.

I see my light come shining

From the west unto the east.

Any day now, any day now,

I shall be released.


Standing next to me in this lonely crowd,

Is a man who swears he's not to blame.

All day long I hear him shout so loud

,Crying out that he was framed.

I see my light come shining

From the west unto the east

.Any day now, any day now,

I shall be released.
