Things have changed

Almoçando com a minha filha Joana, falei-lhe do poste abaixo que acabava de publicar e sobretudo do facto a que ele se referia.
Joana ainda não tinha visto o anúncio mas lembrou-me aquela música mais recente de Bob Dylan, feita para o filme “Wonder Boys” e que até ganhou o Oscar de melhor música: “I used to care but things have changed”, diz ele aí.
Lembro-me que ao receber esse Oscar, através de vídeo porque Bob Dylan, naturalmente não esteve na cerimónia, disse que agradecia mas estranhava, certamente não tinham compreendido a música.
Fui reler a letra e penso que a compreendi, talvez esteja aqui de facto a resposta à questão que levantei.

A letra está aqui:

Things have changed

A worried man with a worried mind

No one in front of me and nothing behind
There's a woman on my lap and she's drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin's eyes
I'm looking up into the sapphire tinted skies
I'm well dressed, waiting on the last train

Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I'm expecting all hell to break loose

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This place ain't doing me any good
I'm in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons do the jitterbug rag
Ain't no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he's got anything to prove

Lot of water under the bridge, Lot of other stuff too
Don't get up gentlemen, I'm only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I've been walking forty miles of bad road
If the bible is right, the world will explode
I've been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can't win with a losing hand

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheel barrow and wheeling her down the street

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I hurt easy, I just don't show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I'm in love with a woman who don't even appeal to me

Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I'm not that eager to make a mistake

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

Podem ver a interpretação no You tube, visto que foi negada a possibilidade de o transpor para aqui.
