BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN lyrics - Before The Fame

Marie

Original and similar lyrics
Marie, she comes to me in the twilight When the wind blows down across the river So cold, the fishermen cry She rapes me in a rage of rainbow violence Till my bare nerves, they sing Like the strings of a violin And the room seeps into a savage silence Soaked in colours, red as blood, blue as night And Marie she skins me alive Carves her initials in my side Lures me with her purrs and cuts me with her knife And the horses pound like thunder They bolt like lightning on her range She feels she's going under and she zeros in the rein She's so strange Well, Marie, you know, she's the queen of all the stallions And I'm her prince of mules And one of her principal fools Marie, she's got the claws of a falcon And she's perched on my shoulder, and slowly digging in But she, oh she can be so strange sometimes Like at night ... Or when the neighbors come to dine Marie, she skins me alive Burns her initials in my hide and then leaves me all alone Branded to the bone And my heart pounds like her horses Oh, stampeding on the range Marie knows all the sources And she shoots me with her pain And for her, I take it, Lord, down in my veins And I watch her dance like some berserk fairy All across the concrete prairies of Bleecker Street Marie, she can be so strange But she's the only lonely cowgirl on my range

Regrets

Black Train Jack
Up in the morning got to get outside A few hours early to get some overtime The sun splashes on the wall right after dawn Charge his battery got to last all night Coffee and a cigarette starts his day off right In Central Park a dog runs across the lawn Regrets Work every day just trying to stay ahead Slaving like an animal he wishes he was dead Uptown downtown through the underground New York subways make a certain sound Everybody's got somewhere to go He thinks to himself as he looks to check the time The latent images in other peoples minds Autumn mornings have thoughts all their own This cannot be what life is for He's fighting a war Just to remain alive On the way home he stops At the local video store Because he rented Annie Hall On the night before He's got a burritto in his bag He's staying in tonight Because what's the use in going out On a Tuesday night This cannot be what life is for He's fighting a war Just to remain alive Happiness should not be a dream Or only a scheme Who's foundation is based on lies Next day got to do it again there is no end Until the day he dies Find something that you will enjoy And do it now boy Because this is our only life

Dry County

JON BON JOVI "Keep The Faith"
Across the border they turn Water into wine Some say it's the devil's blood They're squeezing from the vine Some say it's a saviour In these hard and desperate times For me it helps me to forget That we're just born to die I came here like so many did To find the better life To find my piece of easy street To finally be alive And I know nothing good comes easy And all good things take some time I made my bed I'll lie in it To die in it's the crime You can't help but prosper Where the streets are paved with gold They say the oil wells ran deeper here than anybody's known I packed up on my wife and kid And left them back at home Now there's nothing in this paydirt The ghosts are all I know Now the oil's gone The money's gone And the jobs are gone Still we're hangin' on Down in dry county They're swimming in the sand Praying for some holy water To wash the sins from off our hand Here in dry county The promise has run dry Where nobody cries And no one's getting out of here alive In the blessed name of Jesus I heard a preacher say That we are God's children And He'd be back someday And I hoped that he knew Something as he drank his cup of wine I didn't have too good of a feeling As I head out to the night I cursed the sky to open I begged the clouds for rain I prayed to God for water For this burning in my veins It was like my soul's on fire And I had to watch the flames All my dreams went up in ashes And my future blew away Now the oil's gone And the money's gone And the jobs are gone Still we're hangin' on Down in dry county They're swimming in the sand Praying for some holy water To wash the sins from off our hand Here in dry county The promise has run dry Where nobody cries And no one's getting out of here alive Men spend their whole lives Waiting praying for their big reward But it seems sometimes The payoff leaves you feeling Like a dirty whore If I could choose the way I'll die Make it by the gun or knife 'Cause the other way there's too much pain Night after night after night Down in dry county They're swimming in the sand Praying for some holy water To wash the sins from off our hand Here in dry county The promise has run dry Where nobody cries And no one's getting out of here alive

I See God In You

JOSH WILSON "Carry Me"
Lily Grace lives next door, The ripe young age of ninety-four, I see her in her garden everyday. Still sings at the Sunday choir, Reads up King James line by line, And tells me "Son, Jesus is the way." Her husband passed in '85, But she still keeps their love alive. Kisses his photograph every night, Says "I'll see you soon." Ooh... Lily Grace, I see God in you. I met him right before a show, His mom said, "This is Gabriel. The doctors say he shouldn't be alive." Some my call him special needs, But Jesus calls him royalty, Just look and you'll see heaven in his eyes. He was quiet as the dawn, 'Til I started my first song. He clapped his hands and danced all night long, Like there was nothing wrong. Ooh... Gabriel, I see God in you. Ooh... Are you weary, are you weak, Filled with insecurities? Believe me, you are not the only one. I get scared to look inside myself, I know that darkness oh so well, I sometimes wonder if I'm too far gone. But even in my doubts I'll choose, To hold on to this truth. That God is making broken things brand new, Even me and you. Ooh... I see God in you. Ooh... yeah, I see God in you. I see God in you... oh oh, I see God in you. I see God in you... oh oh, I see God in you.

The Temptation Of Adam

JOSH RITTER "The Historical Conquests Of Josh Ritter"
"If this was the Cold War we could keep each other warm." I said on the first occasion that I met Marie We were crawling through the hatch that was the missile silo door And I don't think that she really thought that much of me I never had to learn to love her like I learned to love the Bomb She just came along and started to ignore me But as we waited for the Big One I started singing her my songs And I think she started feeling something for me We passed the time with crosswords that she thought to bring inside What five letters spell "apocalypse" she asked me I won her over singing "W.W.I.I.I." Oh, we smiled and we both knew that she'd misjudged me Oh Marie, it was so easy to fall in love with you It felt almost like a home of sorts or something And you would keep the warhead missile silo good as new And I'd watch you with my thumb above the button Then one night you found me in my army issue cot And you told me of your flash of inspiration You said fusion was the broken heart that's lonely's only thought And all night long you drove me wild with your equations Oh Marie, do you remember all the time we used to take Makin' love and then ransack the rations I think about you leaving now and the avalanche cascades And my eyes get washed away in chain reactions Oh Marie if you would stay then we could stick pins in the map Of all the places where you thought that love would be found But I would only need one pin to show where my love's at In a top-secret location three hundred feet under the ground Oh, we could hold each other close and stay up every night Looking up into the dark like it's the night sky Pretend this giant missile is an old oak tree instead And carve our name in hearts into the warhead Oh, Marie there's something tells me things just won't work out above That our love would live a half-life on the surface So at night while you are sleeping I hold you closer just because As our time grows short I get a little nervous Oh, I think about the Big One, W.W.I.I.I. Would we ever really care the world had ended You could hold me here forever like you're holding me tonight I think about that great big button and I'm tempted
