    Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see?
    Trying to learn how to walk like the heroes we thought we had to be
    And after all this time to find we're just like all the rest
    Stranded in the park and forced to confess
    To hiding on the Backstreets.

    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've got one last chance to make it real, to trade in these wings on some wheels.
    Climb in back, heaven's waiting down on the tracks.

    She went away, she cut me like a knife
    Hello beautiful thing, maybe you could save my life
    In just a glance, down here on magic street
    Loves a fool's dance
    And I ain't got much sense, but I still got my feet.

    Sometimes it's like someone took a knife, baby, edgy and dull,
    And cut a six-inch valley through the middle of my skull.
    At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
    and a freight train running through the middle of my head.
    Only you can cool my desire.
    Oh, I'm on fire.

    That you know flag flying over the courthouse
    Means certain things are set in stone
    Who we are, what we'll do and what we won't.

    The drummer in my first band was killed in Vietnam. He kind of signed up and joined the marines. Bart Hanes was his name. He was one of those guys that was jokin' all the time, always playin' the clown.

    The E Street band casts a pretty wide net. Our influences go all the way back to the early primitive garage music, and also, we've had everything in the band from jazz players to Kansas City trumpet players to Nils Lofgren, one of the great rock guitarists in the world.

    The highway is alive tonight
    But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes
    I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light
    With the ghost of old Tom Joad.

    The name 'Boss' started with people that worked for me... It was not meant like Boss, capital B, it was meant like 'Boss, where's my dough this week?' And it was sort of just a term among friends. I never really liked it.
