Isis Lyrics

Play "Isis"
on Amazon Music

I married Isis on the fifth day of May
But I could not hold on to her very long
So I cut off my hair and I rode straight away
For the wild unknown country where I could not go wrong.

I came to a high place of darkness and light
The dividing line...

    Another way of saying that The Man married the ''Madonna Complex'' of a Woman that's like the ''ISIS'' man made goddess part of the Government that He had to leave Her behind in order to find himself and clear His head. Then when coming back home to Her. He realized that They both had put a mystical spell on eachother, that strangely bonded them together to still get to know eachother by love, even if it's false and even if it would make Him mad and insane to still go back to Her devilish and mysterious smile that He desired to see and love again.

    The song tells the story of a man who left his bride behind to go off on an adventure. The adventure turns out badly, and the man realizes what a fool he was to leave the woman he loves behind. He returns to her, pledging to stay forever.

    Dylan wrote this song shortly after splitting up with his wife Sara (a much more straightforward song about her, "Sara," appears at the end of the "Desire" album, the same one "Isis" appears on). It seems probable to me that this song is Bob Dylan's way of apologizing to Sara, of saying "I neglected you and abandoned you while pursuing my music, by following my own dreams and interests. I ignored ou while I was out trying to find myself. I see now that I was a fool to do that, and I want to come back to you... if you still want me."
