    "Badlands" Lyrics

    Bruce Springsteen

    Lights out tonight
    trouble in the heartland
    Got a head-on collision
    smashin' in my guts, man
    I'm caught in a cross fire
    that I don't understand
    But there's one thing I know for sure girl
    I don't give a damn
    For the same old played out scenes
    Baby I don't give a damn
    For just the in-betweens
    Honey, I want the heart, I want the soul

    I want control right now
    you better listen to me baby
    talk about a dream
    Try to make it real
    you wake up in the night
    With a fear so real
    You spend your life waiting
    for a moment that just don't come
    Well, don't waste your time waiting

    Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
    Let the broken hearts stand
    As the price you've gotta pay
    Keep pushin' till it's understood
    and these badlands start treating us good

    Workin' in the fields

    till you get your back burned
    Workin' 'neath the wheels
    till you get your facts learned
    Baby I got my facts
    learned real good right now
    You better get it straight darling
    Poor man wanna be rich,
    rich man wanna be king
    And a king ain't satisfied
    till he rules everything
    I wanna go out tonight,
    I wanna find out what I got

    Well I believe in the love that you gave me
    I believe in the faith that could save me
    I believe in the hope
    and I pray that some day
    It may raise me above these


    mmmmmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmm

    For the ones who had a notion,
    a notion deep inside
    That it ain't no sin
    to be glad you're alive
    I wanna find one face
    that ain't looking through me
    I wanna find one place,
    I wanna spit in the face of these badlands
