Dancing In The Dark by Bruce Springsteen

I Play a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s classic hit Dancing In The Dark, from the Van.

I bet loads of you haven’t really listened to the lyrics of this song, or if you have it was only so you could scream along to them in the car!

That was the case for me anyway, until I covered this song and realised how heartfelt these lyrics were.

I hope you enjoy.

Lyrics:

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

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 look in the mirror

I want to change my clothes, my hair, my face Man

I ain’t getting nowhere I’m just living in a dump like this

There’s something happening somewhere

Baby I just know that there is

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

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 this laugh’s on me

Stay on the streets of this town

And they’ll be carving you up alright

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 sitting ’round crying over a broken heart

This gun’s for hire

Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

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

Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

Hey baby
