Born to Run Bruce springsteen

"In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream

At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines

Sprung from cages out on highway nine,

Chrome wheeled, fuel injected, and steppin' out over the line

H-Oh, Baby this town rips the bones from your back

It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap

We gotta get out while we're young

`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

Yes, girl we were"

We work everyday to pursue our American Dreams

During the night we go out and enjoy the fruits of our labor

People are driving fast on the highway

Nice cars cutting into different lanes

This town will tear you down

It will be the death of you

We have to get away while we still can

People like us were destined to escape

"Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend

I want to guard your dreams and visions

Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims

And strap your hands 'cross my engines

Together we could break this trap

We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back

H-Oh, Will you walk with me out on the wire

`Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider

But I gotta know how it feels

I want to know if love is wild

Babe I want to know if love is real

Oh, can you show me"

Trust me, I am trying to be your friend

I want to protect your dreams for the future

Wrap your legs around me

put you hands on my chest

Together we could get away

We will live on the road and never return

Will you take a chance with me

Come with me because I am scared and alone

And I want to find love

I want to know if love is different

Is love real

"Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard

Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors

And the boys try to look so hard

The amusement park rises bold and stark

Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist

I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight

In an everlasting kiss

One, two, three, four"

Chryslers race down the street

Girls are passengers

and the boys driving try not to look

Amusement park rides stand strong and grim

Kids hang out on the beach in the dark

I could die with you right now

I kiss that would stay with me forever

The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive

Everybody's out on the run tonight

But there's no place left to hide

Together Wendy we can live with the sadness

I'll love you with all the madness in my soul

H-Oh, Someday girl I don't know when

We're gonna get to that place

Where we really wanna go

And we'll walk in the sun

But till then tramps like us

Baby we were born to run

Highway is full of people looking for a chance to be known

Everyone is looking for a place to find themselves tonight

But there is no where left to look

Together we fight through life's sadness

I will love you with all of my being

In the future

we will get to where we want to be

We will be happy

But until then oursiders like us

We were destined to get away
