    A while ago somewhere I don't know when
    I was watching a movie with a friend.
    I fell in love with the actress.
    She was playing a part that I could understand.

    Dylan for me. Specifically "I was so much older then I'm younger than that now" which also has the lyric "girls faces formed the forward path" which you could put on my tombstone. I do like girls..........

    Guess it's time I lived my life alone
    Packed and headed out for parts unknown
    I ain't even looking back
    Got my mirror painted black
    and I just said goodbye to Devil Town

    "Ain't it just like the night to play tricks when you're trying to be so quiet.
    We sit here stranded though we all do our best to deny it." -Dylan

    I've been listening to that line for close to 40 years now, and it still gives me chills.
