Born to Run
"In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway american dream, At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines, Sprung from cages out of highway 9, Chrome wheeled, fuel injected and steppin out over the line, Baby this town rips the bones from your back, its a death trap, its a suicide rap, We got to get out while were young"

The artist it trying to find/live the american dream, he works all day to make a living, highway 9 is an escape, to leave town and be free, he works all day yo get by, life to young to be always working.

" 'cause tramps like us, baby we born to run, 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 around my engines, Together we could break the trap, well tun till we drop, baby well never go back, Will you walk with me out on the wire, cause baby i'm just a scared and lonely rider, But I gotta find out how it feels, I want to know if love is wild, girl I want to know if love is real."

people like him are meant to always work, he wants to be with this girl, love and protect her, they will leave together and experience life with each other, want to know how and to be loved.

"Beyond the palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard, the girls comb their hair on review mirrors and the boys try to looks so hard, The amusement parks rise bold and stark kids are buddled on the beach in a mist, I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight in all everlasting kiss."

everyone is stuck in the town trying to impress the same people all the time, people don't try new things because their scared to experience something different, he wants to be with Wendy.

"The highway jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive, Everybody's out on the run tonight, but theirs no place left to hid, together Wendy we'll live with sadness, I'll love you with all the madness in my soul, Someday girl I don't know when were gonna get to that place, Where we really want to go and well walk in the sun, But till then traps like us baby we were born to run, Oh honey tramps like us baby we were born to run, come on with me, tramps like us baby we were born to run."

the town is filled with broken dreams or promises, everyone is trying to get by, no matter what he wants to be with wendy, someday they will be together and have everything but till then they are going to try to find themselfs and get out of the town to be happy and free.

Hyperbole: "Baby this town rips the bones from your back"

Alliteration: "The highway jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive"

Tone: Runaways trying to find themselves one day and just living on the edge

Theme: trying to get Wendy to be with him while he finds himself in trying to live the american dream

Springsteen was calling for "hope" in his music for the difficulties he was going through. Amazing rock and roll artist who was the most misunderstood popular music. Had their opinions on his political views. He was in the working class throughout the eighties with his music.

Born to run meaning behind the song was betrayal, loss and defeat. Started as a love letter to Wendy, but he wasn't so patiently
