I don't see a listing on BobDylan.com, but the song shows up here and there online. It seems to me to be one of those heartbreaking songs for which he has not composed the words. Paul Williams (writing of I'm Not There) wondered if Dylan's songwriting process was sometimes like tuning in a far off radio frequency, where the song is fully formed but is too fuzzy to catch the details. This falls far short of that work of art; it's more an interesting listen for fans of a certain psychotic devotion. Which is not to say it doesn't have some charms.

Genius.com makes a marginal attempt at transcription (bravo for trying): https://genius.com/Bob-dylan-to-fall-in ... you-lyrics and there's an article here: http://bob-dylan.org.uk/archives/2809

Maybe I'm just 'psychotic' (introducing such labels in a comment represent an acerbic forearming against disagreement, don't they?), but I think you underestimate this song and a fine performance of it.

I can easily imagine some beautiful live performances of this song ala "I'll remember you", ... oh, those tremendous rough guitars arrangements from the nineties. Science fiction of course.

I was including myself in the description, so it's ok, right?

So long as we are all agreed that we are all mad, that's fine with me!

love this one. Could have been one of the better 80s tracks if it was finished. I also like Almost Done/Angel of Rain.
