  1. Simple Twist of Fate by Bob Dylan
    (Sung & Played by Aidan Bryden)

    They sat together in the park
    As the evening sky grew dark
    She looked at him and he felt a spark, tingle to his bones
    ’Twas then he felt alone, and wished that he’d gone straight
    And watched out for a simple twist of fate

    They walked along by the old canal
    A little confused, I remember well
    And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burnin’ bright
    He felt the heat of the night that hit him like a freight train
    Movin’ with a simple twist of fate

    A saxophone someplace far off played
    As she was walkin’ by the arcade
    As the light bust through a beat-up shade, where he was wakin’ up,
    She dropped a coin into the cup, of a blind man at the gate
    And forgot about a simple twist of fate

    He woke up, the room was bare
    He couldn’t see her anywhere
    He told himself he didn’t care, pushed the window open wide
    Felt an emptiness inside, to which he just could not relate
    Brought on by a simple twist of fate

    He hears the ticking of the clocks
    And walks along with a parrot that talks
    Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailors all come in
    Maybe she’ll pick him out again, how long must he wait
    Once more for a simple twist of fate

    People tell me it’s a sin
    To know and feel too much within
    I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring
    She was born in spring, oh, but I was born too late
    Blame it on a simple twist of fate
