"Dancing in the Dark" by Bruce Springsteen

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.

Messages keep getting clearer.
Radio's on and I'm moving 'round my place.
I check my look in the mirror;
wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face.

And I ain't getting nowhere.
I just live in a dump like this.
There's something happening somewhere.
Baby, I just know 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're sitting around getting older.
There's a joke, it's wild, and it's on me.
I shake this world off my shoulders.
Come on baby, the laugh's on me.

Stay on the streets of this town
and they'll be carving you up all right.
You say you gotta stay hungry.
Hey baby, I'm just about starting to break.

I dying for some action.
I'm sick of sitting around here trying to write this book.
I need a love reaction.
Come on, baby, give me just one look.

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.
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.
