They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark
Tingle to his bones

    She was born in spring, but I was born too late - blame it on a simple twist of fate.

    I can't believe I waited so long on Dylan. Spectacular music. Nothing short of pure art.

    I love Blood on the Tracks but it literally makes me weep. I've only listened to the album in it's entirety 3 times.

    People tell me it’s a sin to know and feel too much within, I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring. She was born in spring, but I was born too late, blame it on a simple twist of fate.

    I don't know... there's great beauty in the album as well as pain. I wouldn't call it an ordeal, though it's certainly a heavy listen.

    Yes it's incredible that Dylan continued to fine-tune his lyrics years after the song was released. An absolute perfectionist. I like the quote from foG_. For me, Blood on the Tracks is an ordeal which you have to get through, rather than music to be enjoyed.
