Waiting for you

Zondagavond speelde Bob Dylan in Stockholm een primeur. Plots was het lied er weer: Waiting for you. Dylan schreef het lied in 2002 voor de soundtrack van de film The Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood. De soundtrack stond onder aanvoering van T-Bone Burnett, een oude kameraad van Dylan
Waiting For You is door Dylan twee keer uitgevoerd, in 2005. Dat was het jaar dat hij ook in Ahoy, Amsterdam, een optreden gaf, op de dag af ruim 8 jaar voordat de zanger straks opnieuw in Nederland optreedt.
Speuren op internet levert de onderstaande tekst van Waiting For You op.

Waiting For You

I never dreamed it could be
A someone made just for me.
When I'm letting her have her way,
I'm here to see what she has to say.
Aw, the poor girl always wins the day.
I'm stayin' ahead of the game,
And she's a-doin' the same,
And the whiskey flyin' into my head.
The fiddler's arm has gone dead,
And talk is beginning to spread

When did our love go bad?
Whatever happened to the best friend that I had?
It's been so long since I held you tight
Been so long since we said goodnight.
The taste of tears is bittersweet.
When you're near me, my heart forgets to beat.
You're there every night
Among the good and the true,
And I'll be around, waitin' for you.

Well, the king of them all
Is starting to fall.
I lost my gal at the boatman's ball.
The night has a thousand hearts and eyes.
Hope may vanish, but it never dies.
I'll see you tomorrow when freedom rings.
I'm gonna stay on top of things.
It's the middle of summer,
And the moon is blue.
And I'll be around, waitin' for you.

Another deal gone down,
Another man done gone.
You put up with it all, and you carry on.
Something holding you back,
But you'll come through.
I'd bet the world and everything in it on you.
Happiness is but a state of mind.
Anytime you want, you can cross the state line.
You don't need to be rich
or well-to-do,
I'll be around, waitin' for you.

© Bob Dylan, 2002
