      About "Temporary Like Achilles"

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "Temporary Like Achilles"

      Standing on your window, honey
      Yes, I’ve been here before
      Feeling so harmless, I’m looking at your second door
      How come you don’t send me no regards?
      You know I want your lovin’
      Honey, why are you so hard?

      Kneeling ’neath your ceiling
      Yes, I guess I’ll be here for a while
      I’m tryin’ to read your portrait
      But i’m helpless, like a rich man’s child
      How come you send someone out to have me barred?
      You know I want your lovin’
      Honey, why are you so hard?

      Like a poor fool in his prime
      Yes, I know you can hear me walk
      But is your heart made out of stone, or is it lime
      Or is it just solid rock?

      Well, I lean into your hallway
      Lean against your velvet door
      I watch upon your scorpion
      Who crawls across your circus floor
      Just what do you think you have to guard?
      You know I want your lovin’
      Honey, but you’re so hard

      Achilles is in your alleyway
      He don’t want me here, he does brag
      He’s pointing to the sky
      And he’s hungry, like a man in drag
      How come you get someone like him to be your guard?
      You know I want your lovin’
      Honey, but you’re so hard
