Bob Dylan - Can't Wait Lyrics



I can't wait, wait for you to change your mind
It's late, I'm tryin' to walk the line
Well, it's way past midnight
And there's some people all around
Some on their way up, some on their way down
The air burns and I'm tryin' to think straight
An' I don't know how much longer I can wait.

I'm your man, I'm tryin' to recover the sweet love that we knew
You understand that my heart can't go on beatin' without you
Well your loveliness has wounded me
I'm reelin' from the blow
I wish I knew what it was that keeps me lovin' you so
I'm breathin' hard, standin' at the gate
Ah, but I don't know how much longer I can wait.

Skies are gray
I'm lookin' for anything that will bring a happy glow
Night or day, it doesn't matter where I go anymore, I just go
If I ever saw you comin' I don't know what I might do
I'd like to think I could control myself but it isn't true
That's how it is when things disintegrate
And I don't know how much longer I can wait.

I'm doomed to love you
I've been rollin' through stormy weather
I'm thinkin' of you
And all the places we could roam together.

It's mighty funny
The end of time has just begun
Oh, honey, after all these years you're still the one
Well, I'm strollin' through the lonely graveyard of my mind
I left my life with you somewhere back there along the line
I thought somehow that I would be spared this fate
I don't know how much longer I can wait.

  16. Keith Kinion

    He plucks a throw-away song off one of his albums and turns it into a shining pearl. This is a great love song without the sentimentality. I would hit the ff button on the CD version, but I cant get enough of this version. Pure genius. This is nobel-prize worthy.

  17. Tom Bonnell

    BIG SMILE!

    I can't wait
    Wait for you to change your mind
    It's late
    I'm tryin' to walk the line
    Well, it's way past midnight
    And there's some people all around
    Some on their way up
    Some on their way down
    The air burns and I'm tryin to think straight
    And I don't know how much longer I can wait
    I'm your man
    I've tried to recover the sweet love that we knew
    You understand
    That my heart can't go on beating without you
    Well your loveliness has wounded me
    I'm reeling from the blow
    I wish I knew what it was that keeps me loving you so
    I'm breathin' hard standin' at the gate
    Oh, but I don't know how much longer I can wait
    Skies are gray
    I'm looking for anything that will bring a happy glow
    Night or day
    It doesn't matter where I go anymore I just go
    If I ever saw you comin' I don't know what I might do
    I'd like to think I could control myself
    But it isn't true
    That's how it is
    When things disintegrate
    And I don't know how much longer I can wait
    I'm doomed to love you
    I been rollin' through stormy weather
    I'm thinkin' of you
    And all the places we could roam together
    It's mighty funny
    The end of time has just begun
    Oh honey, after all these years you're still the one
    Well I'm strollin' through the lonely graveyard of my mind
    I left my life with you
    Somewhere back there along the line
    I thought somehow that I would be spared this day
    I don't know how much longer I can wait

    Bob you're the living proof that living a healty life is paramount if you want to age well.With your diet done mainly of coca cola and tons of ice ,every meal served in some gas station's restaurant in lost places all over the world and what you call home is a tour bus

  52. Gregory Baltzer

    HOW DO I EXPLAIN..BEEN LISTENING TO THIS MAN FOR SIXTY YEARS..I THINK HE WILL OUT LAST ME, AND IF A WISH WERE TO EVER COME TRUE, HE AND HIS BAND BE AT MY FUNERAL SERVICE TO SEND ME OFF..
    SUCH A THRILL TO SEE THIS GUY, IT NEVER GETS OLD

  53. KK Z

    Wish he would have given the band a jam out for a couple verses and have him do some disco across the stage.

  54. Hansi Grunwald

    ......even keith Richards sings better....

    Keith Kinion

    The better he is, the fewer people like him. You were one of those he left behind.

  55. Guitar Man

    Funky ass groove.

  56. Staffan Morud

    Totally brilliant!

  57. AndyNyle

    Needs to be an opener on the American Idol

  58. Kirk Woodward

  60. Karmen Jazbec

    i am ready

  61. Karmen Jazbec

    yeah bob marry me

  62. mordirag

    He should be doing this in small clubs - folk are missing the amazing pantomime that he seems to deliver these days when he is in this mood - screens help, and knowing the songs beforehand, and then getting surprised by the new delivery, is part of the current joy. Maybe still hit and miss, but this is definitely a hit!

  63. Paul Murphy

    This lesbian sure has a deep voice.

  64. Guy

    Best version of this song

  65. exupakias

    I feel very sory watching Bob Dylan in his age singing, he is very very very old, i think was better to stay in his bed.

  66. Peter Grossett

    I tried to warch this video, but after the first few notes, i just could'nt wait......to turn off.

  67. Todd Burge

    Damn, that’s killer

  68. BackToTheBlues

    I love it when Bob demolishes and rebuilds his songs - great version!

  69. Karmen Jazbec

    marry me kiss

  70. Karmen Jazbec

    i am waiting you bob omly you ilove

  71. sebas de bordeaux

    Funny to see that getting old he smiles while singing!! anybody remember him doing so?? apart from this, his voice is something really frightening but it's alright, it's Dylan!!

  72. Marc Eibel

    This, guys, is a living legend...

  73. geertje Dirkse

    Great video. Thanks! And good to see Bob in such a happy mood.

  74. Karmen Jazbec

  88. EmmaPeelman

    A 78-year-old with a mullet singing well to a swinging, almost funky version of his song and apparently enjoying himself in the process. Good on you, Uncle Bob!

    Mike Mc Isaac
