BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN lyrics : "Thunder Road"

The screen door slams
Mary' dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch

As the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey that's me and I want you only

Don't turn me home again
I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside

Darling you know just what I'm here for
So you're scared and you're thinking
That maybe we ain't that young anymore

Show a little faith there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me

You can hide 'neath your covers
And study your pain

Make crosses from your lovers
Throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain

For a saviour to rise from these streets
Well now I'm no hero
That's understood

All the redemption I can offer girl
Is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow

Hey what else can we do now ?
Except roll down the window
And let the wind blow

Back your hair
Well the night's busting open
These two lanes will take us anywhere

We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back

Heaven's waiting on down the tracks
Oh-oh come take my hand
We're riding out tonight to case the promised land

Oh-oh Thunder Road oh Thunder Road
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run

Oh Thunder Road sit tight take hold
Thunder Road

Well I got this guitar
And I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back

If you're ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride it ain't free

And I know you're lonely
For words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free

All the promises'll be broken
There were ghosts in the eyes
Of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street

Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on

But when you get to the porch they're gone
On the wind so Mary climb in
It's town full of losers

And I'm pulling out of here to win
