Dancing in the Dark - 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

CHORUS: 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

Message keeps getting clearer Radio's on and I'm moving 'round the place I check my looks in the mirror I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face Man, I ain't getting nowhere just living in a dump like this There's something happening somewhere Baby I just know that there is


You sit around getting older There's a joke here somewhere and it's on me I'll 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 night They say you gotta stay hungry Hey baby I'm just about starving tonight I'm dying for some action I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write this book I need a love reaction Come on now baby gimme just one look


You 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...
