However, the repetition also serves to draw our attention to a difference between the cases which might suggest her mental state is improving. If she is walking across the carpet, this might be seen as a sign of hope for her. The passages in between are essentially negative, as her thoughts start to dwell on her situation.
The militaristic metaphors suggest that she sees the successful formation of relationships as a matter of making conquests. Her strategy has failed, however. Her lover has left. In addition to her defeat, the battle has left her mentally scarred.
She may be thinking that those like herself who live by the sword, die by the sword. Despite this, there is hope. Literally it would be absurd for sailors to be rowing home. It suggests a return to where they belong, to where they can do no more harm. Hope is again implied in the second verse, which shows the woman confronting Baby Blue - Various - More Heavy Sounds (Vinyl problem of how to survive in her changed world.
She accepts that what befalls one is a matter of chance:. The same pun suggests how she might achieve spiritual renewal, for with the beggar at the door she has an obvious use for her cents.
All this leads up to a final suggestion of hope in the penultimate line, an apparent willingness to:. The four verses cover a range of issues. Although the refrain at the Its All Over Now of each verse always remains unaltered, it would seem to reflect her despair only at the end of the first three verses.
By the end of the song, it can be taken as expressing new-found hope in that the woman no longer seems intent on dying, Baby Blue - Various - More Heavy Sounds (Vinyl, and seems prepared to act for the sake of others. The route to this hope has been difficult, however, as attempts to get a grip are submerged by bouts of despair and illusion. By the end of the song it seems likely that the woman is likely to start afresh.
Revised The revision takes into account some, but not all, of the comments made by Mr Wheeler in his reply, and in my follow-up responses, below. Thank you for writing it! Like Like. This is one of my favorite Dylan songs, although I much prefer the Grateful Dead version from the Complete Live Rarities Collection — I think the backing music does a much better job of capturing mercurial thoughts of the narrator.
Please excuse some of the rambling as this is mostly off the cuff. To me, the song has always been about moving forward and the struggles and fears that always seem to accompany that process. The orphan with the gun has always been Its All Over Now perplexing line. There is no parent to say what is right and what is wrong, so the image of the gun is used to convey ultimate desperation.
Well the saints are coming through, so it sure seems like it… but its far too early to end as the song has just begun, so we must move forward. The highway is for gamblers — time to get up and take a risk, but you better use your sense. I totally agree with you about the empty-handed painter being the subject a restless sleeper.
The third stanza starts by describing all those who have tried and failed, but were never really prepared. The empty handed armies never brought anything to begin with. Just as quickly as they showed up, they turned and left. Why does the lover have his blankets on the floor? The carpet is gone, too, leaving the subject naked and without warmth. Finally, there is a realization. Leave the stepping stones behind.
You can leave a trail that shows from where you came but it tells you nothing of where you will be or are meant to be. They stay where they are, and if you stay you may as well be dead, too.
Now the subject can either be the vagabond and wander aimlessly through life, knocking on an empty home that once was, or embrace this change, start something new and move forward. Let me know what you think. Thanks for your comment. That seems to do justice to the tone.
