GUEST,T-boy Lyr Req: I Shall Be Released (Bob Dylan) (39) RE: I see my life come shining?? 15 Jan 04


I see my light come shining, from the west down to the east.

That's hardly a steal from 'I see the light shining all around' or whatever, is it.

And 'life' would make no sense at all.

I once heard it explained that, if you're a prisoner in a cell with a little window, then the sun moving round the sky from east to west means that you get a patch of light moving round your cell from west to east. Makes sense to me, and quite a poetic image.

Thanks, Bob.
