Bruce Springsteen: Dancing In The Dark



In this musical video clip, Bruce Springsteen performs “Dancing in the Dark,” from the 1984 album Born in the USA, before an appreciative crowd in Barcelona, Spain, in 2002. I went to a Springsteen concert in 1977; and he puts on a great show, a consummate performer who gives and gives. It shows that he loves what he does.

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 laughs on me

Dancing in the Dark
by Bruce Springsteen

I get up in the evening, and I ain't got nothing to say
I come home in the moring, 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 just keep getting clearer, radio's on and I'm moving round the place
I check my look in the mirror wanna change my clothes my hair my face
Man I ain't getting nowhere I'm just livin in a dump like this
There's something happening somewhere baby I just know that there is

(Chorus)

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 laughs on me
Stay on the streets of this town and they'll be carving you up alright
They say you got to 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 baby give me just one look

(Chorus)
You can't start a fire, sittin' 'round cryin' over a broken heart
This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark

You can't start a fire, worryin' 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
