Released

After I Shall be Released by Bob Dylan

 

They say everything can be replaced,

And every one keeps comin’ back here.

But I remember every face,

Every thought, every doubt, and every fear.

I see the light come shining

From the west and from the east.

Any day now, in every way now,

I shall be released.

 

They say every one needs protection,

They say every one must fall.

Yet I swear I see God’s reflection

Sometimes in every one and all.

I see the light come shining

From the west and from the east.

Any day now, in every way now,

He shall be released.

 

All around me in this lonely crowd,

People are sayin’ they’re not to blame.

I take it in and then give it back out

Offering my silent reframe.

I see the light come shining

From the west and from the east.

Any day now, in every way now,

We shall be released.
