dancing in the dark

January 9, 2007

it’s a Springsteen-y kind of day.

i get up in the evening
and i ain’t got nothing to say –
i come home in the morning,
i go to bed feeling the same way.
i ain’t nothing but tired –
man, i’m just tired and bored with myself.
hey there baby, i could use just a little help.

you can’t start a fire –
you can’t start a fire without a spark.
this gun’s for hire,
even if we’re just dancing in the dark.

message keeps getting clearer,
radio’s on and i’m moving ’round the place.
i check my look in the mirror –
i wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face!
man, i ain’t getting nowhere,
i’m just living in a dump like this –
there’s something happening somewhere,
baby, i just know that there is.

you can’t start a fire –
you can’t start a fire without a spark.
this gun’s for hire,
even if we’re just dancing in the dark.

you sit around getting older –
there’s a joke here somewhere and it’s on me.
i’ll shake this world off my shoulders,
come on, baby, this laugh’s on me.

stay on the streets of this town
and they’ll be carving you up all right.
they say you gotta stay hungry –
hey baby, i’m just about starving tonight.
i’m dying for some action,
i’m sick of sitting ’round here trying to write this book –
i need a love reaction,
come on now, baby, gimme just one look.

you can’t start a fire
sitting ’round crying over a broken heart –
this gun’s for hire,
even if we’re just dancing in the dark.
you can’t start a fire
worrying about your little world falling apart!
this gun’s for hire,
even if we’re just dancing in the dark
even if we’re just dancing in the dark
even if we’re just dancing in the dark
even if we’re just dancing in the dark.

hey baby,

(Bruce Springsteen)
