Cat Power - Song To Bobby Lyrics

I wanna tell you
I've always wanted to tell you
But I never had the chance to say
What I feel in my heart from the beginning til my til my dying day

I was fifteen, sixteen maybe
In the park I was waving my arms
You were wet with sweat
And you sang the song I was screaming
I wanted you to

Another time was in South Carolina
It's always been the third encore
Whose wind came blowing in
Can you tell me who were you singing for
Oh my God, can you tell me who you were singing to

A phone call from your New York City office
You were supposedly asking to see me
And how I wanted to tell you
That I was just only four hundred miles away
Who could believe that you were calling I was in DC
I was four hundred miles behind
Backstage pass in my hand
Giving you my heart was my plan I wish I could tell you

My chance
In the middle of the stadium in Paris, France
Can I finally tell you
Can I finally tell you
To be my man
April in Paris, can I see you
Can you please be my man

    David Bowie has a "Song to Dylan". I'm sure there's others as well.

  20. Twilightsong1021

    @jakewino221 I've decided I love you.

  21. Geoff Wilde

    I don't understand why some people think she's the Female Bob Dylan
    Thats like Bob's 'Voice of a Generation' during his Christianity Period.

  22. Geoff Wilde

    Before anyone argues with me, I have nothing against Cat Powers.
    I think she should have chosen a different title.
    This song doesnt address Bob Dylan. The only thing that includes him is the title.
    I think she's ruined the chance for another Singer/Songwriter to write a deeper song about Bob. One who will be able to actualy personaly write about him, not just some old memories and wishes of some mystical guy belonding to her.

  34. Bryan Palmer

    Never ever have I ever heard someone capture Dylan's tempo, emotion and story like Chan does. This song is my all time fav of her's.
