Bruce Springsteen – Thunder Road

Bruce Springsteen – Thunder Road Lyrics: 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

  1. It also was most certainly not done in order to gain attention, which would explain my being so dumbfounded by your response and time taken to formulate it. And no, I do not think I am Shakespeare, so much so that I would definitely recommend that you stop reading me and start reading him. It would be worth your time, while your caustic response to something you probably should had stopped reading midway is not. By the way, goddamn, act your age, if the 141293 is any indication. Cheers.

  2. Nope, not trying to look good for passing-by anonymous avatars. Just trying to convey my perspective over the fact that someone doesn’t see his work the same way as I do. It’s just a song in the same way wherever you lived your early years is just a place. I, for one, could show interest in your life story, hence such a place is no longer just a place, rather the scenario of something else.

  3. this song reminds me of a lot of things, good and bad and everywhere in between. I love it.

  4. In Juliano’s defence, I think (and you’ll probably find numerous other do too) he’s got it about right (albeit in a lot of words). To some people it is just a song, to others considerably more. I don’t know what you call it but that’s the talent this guy has, songs where lyrics have a deeper meaning which you can’t explain and it hits people in different ways. I know exactly what he means – but I guess we at least all like the song. The most wonderful piece of music ever created 🙂

  5. you are an idiot, its a song and your trying to look good by saying all this bullshit. Its actually hilarious to read, i mean i like springsteen but what your saying is pathetic and just done to gain attention, who do you think you are, fucking shakespeare or something? fuck off man

  6. Well im no hero thats understood all the Redemtion i can offer girl is beneath this dirty hood.

  7. This particular fraction of Springsteen’s work is what I believe to be a tale told not by a strict narrative, but from fragmented memories and feelings that encompass a life story, becoming a man, burying dreams, burying loves and, sometimes, digging them up and feeling happy for having once been so happy. And I think that’s most of what being working class, or being human, is all about. The beauty in madness becomes beauty in sadness, and at one point you become OK with that. Springsteen helps.

  8. I sometimes look amazed at people that fail to recognize the greatness that I recognize in some of his lyrics. In those early works it’s about being young, seeing the beauty where there is none, the poetry where there is none, the music where there is none. It’s about being in love with someone, with an idea and with yourself all at the same time. And it’s also about looking back at it and missing how it felt. Every song is situational in that it reflects your own current mood.

  9. You’re still a bit numb, but the mad is now beautiful and you feel like anything is possible and the night is eternal, poetic, people moving like actors in a gigantic play, neon lights like canvas, lampposts like spotlights, cars are no longer means of transportation, rather means of freedom and redemption. “Darkness” is the next day, early morning, going to work, still sore of the hole in your soul left by all the promised greatness, never achieved, from previously.

  10. The jovial desperate loud madness leads way to a middle-aged resignated silent psychosis. If I were to describe those albums quickly, I’d say “Greetings” is about the early night, 6 PM, sun setting, the wonder of the possibilities ahead. “The Wild, the Innocent”is about the heat of the night, 11 PM, when everything is happening at once and you’re drunk as hell. “Born to Run” is about 1 AM, when you kind of shrug off some of the alcohol and you somehow rise above the crazy.

  11. It’s the very same guy, older and beaten up, his plans and dreams shattered, his loved one lost, while a single spark of hope and belonging refuses to die. It’s when Springsteen became a sort of “working class spokesman”. It’s not about getting up everyday to do the same thing. It’s not about the man sticking it to you. It’s about all the dreams that were killed so that you would get to that point. It’s sad, it breaks your heart and leaves you a mess.

  12. Born to Run, in its turn, is about the dark side of the city, still amazing and powerful, a more sober work, no longer dipped into the grandiose of the urban setting, but in the epic feelings of running away and starting over, it’s about redemption, desperate runaway love and freedom from the environment and a given way of life. It’s got blood in its eyes and the veins are popping out. Dakness on the Edge of Town, however, is dark and miserable.

  13. It’s big, it’s loud, it’s obnoxious, it’s like being inebriated by the city and falling into the hobo poet imagery, a concrete-rooted Dylan of sorts with dreams of greatness. The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle brings an urban familiarity, like one that belongs to the urban nocturnal habits, what with the variety of genres and influences, like a melting pot of cabarets, as if his band was made of members of different bands with different backgrounds, with rich, colorful variety.

  14. this song is just amazing, one of those songs that you just cant find words for. i get chills during the sax solo every time

  15. Well, I may be off here and I certainly am not able to speak for all his fans out there, but I find his work to be a bit more situational than those you mentioned, also among my favorites, if I may say so. It’s something that’s very intertwined with your very story of life. He has a sort of an ark with his early work that is very rare among artists. Greeting from Asbuty Park is a blazing urban ride of someone amazed by being anonymous in a huge world he didn’t know.

  16. i listen to this song every single night. no song has ever touched me the way this one does. and when he performed it back in april at the concert…my life changed forever. thank you bruce and the e street band for completely changing my life <3

  17. I know what you mean. I felt exactly the same, right down to the Simon and Garfunkel reference. I’ve only recently started listening to Bruce seriously, and I think his songs are about small town America and metamorphism and breaking free. They’re hopeful songs, I think. It’s wrong to dismiss him as a stadium rocker, but I’m still not compltely sure of him, either.

  18. In my opinion.. This is best version of the song “rawhide.” but having a hard time finding this version of the song

  19. The real Good Ole Boys didn’t show up until the bar closed and apparently didn’t even call to say they’d be late…also, what other country songs did they know besides the two they sang…and, its a miracle none of the patrons near the stage were cut by flying broken glass. LOL.

  20. Just saw the movie again, love the Spielberg and Joe Walsh cameos at the end.

  21. Glad to have been able to see this film at the cinema on its release. One film that will never grow old.

  22. Blues Brothers is jazz lingo for honey badger. And honey badger don’t give a fuck!
