      About "Don't Fall Apart On Me Tonight"

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "Don't Fall Apart On Me Tonight"

      Just a minute before you leave, girl
      Just a minute before you touch the door
      What is it that you're trying to achieve, girl?
      Do you think we can talk about it some more?
      You know the streets are filled with vipers
      Who've lost all ray of hope
      You know, it ain't even safe no more
      In the palace of the Pope

      Don't fall apart on me tonight
      I just don't think that I could handle it
      Don't fall apart on me tonight
      Yesterday's just a memory
      Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
      And I need you, yeah

      Come over here from over there, girl
      Sit down here, you can have my chair
      I can't see us going anywhere, girl
      The only place open is a thousand miles away and I can't take you there
      I wish I'd have been a doctor
      Maybe I'd have saved some life that had been lost
      Maybe I'd have done some good in the world
      'Stead of burning every bridge I crossed

      Don't fall apart on me tonight
      I just don't think that I could handle it
      Don't fall apart on me tonight
      Yesterday's just a memory
      Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
      And I need you, yeah

      I ain't too good at conversation, girl
      So you might not know exactly how I feel
      But if I could, I'd bring you to the mountaintop, girl
      And build you a house made out of stainless steel
      But it's like I'm stuck inside a painting
      That´s like hanging in the loose
      My throat starts to tickle and my nose itches
      But I know that I can't move

      Don't fall apart on me tonight
      I just don't think that I could handle it
      Don't fall apart on me tonight
      Yesterday's gone but the past lives on
      Tomorrow's just one step beyond
      And I need you, yeah

      Who are these people who are walking towards you
      Do you know them or will there be a fight?
      With their humorless smiles so easy to see through
      Can they tell you what's wrong from right?

      Or do you remember St. James Street
      Where you blew Jackie P.'s mind?
      You were so fine, Clark Gable would have fell at your feet
      And laid his life on the line

      Let's try to get beneath the surface waste, girl
      No more booby traps and bombs
      No more decadence and charm
      No more affection that's been misplaced, girl
      No more mud cake creatures lying in your arms
      What about that millionaire with the drumsticks in his pants?
      He looked so baffled and bewildered
      When he played and we didn't dance

      Don't fall apart on me tonight
      I just don't think that I could handle it
      Don't fall apart on me tonight
      Yesterday's just a memory
      Tomorrow's never what it's supposed to be
      And I need you, yeah, you
      I need you
