BORN IN TIME (Clapton Eric)

by Bob Dylan In the lonely night, In the stardust of a pale moonlight, I think of you in black and white When we were made of dreams. I walked alone through the shaky streets, Listening to my heart beat In the record-breaking heat When we were born in time. Just when I thought you were gone, you came back Just when I was ready to receive you. You were smooth, you were rough, You were more than enough. Ah babe, why did I ever leave you Or believe you? In the rising curve, Where the ways of nature will test every nerve, I took you close and got what I deserve When we were born in time. Just when I knew who to thank, you went blank Just as the firelight was gleaming. You were snow, you were rain, You were stripes and you were plain. Oh babe, can it be you've been scheming Or was I dreaming? In the hills of mystery, In the foggy web of destiny, You're still so deep inside of me When we were born in time.
