Bruce Springsteen, how do you do it?

I get up in the evening,

and I ain’t got nothing to say (those who know me know that i usually have something to say)

I come home in the morning,

I go to bed feeling the same way

I ain’t nothing but tired, (I just want to sleep, all the time)

man I’m just tired and bored with myself (I need something exciting. Some change. Something)

Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can’t start a fire, (I love starting fires, real and metaphorical)

you can’t start a fire without a spark

This gun’s for hire

even if we’re just dancing in the dark (I can't dance, but i don't think that should stop me from trying)

Message keeps getting clearer,

radio’s on and I’m moving round the place

I check myself out in the mirror

I wanna change my clothes my hair my face

Man I ain’t getting nowhere just sitting in a dump like this

There’s something happening somewhere (yes, but where? And what?)

baby I just know that there is

You can’t start a fire...

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 baby this laughs on me (it generally is)

Stay on the streets of this town (I was told yesterday that i shouldn't stay in Waco, that I should leave. Where I will go, who knows??)

and they’ll be carving you up alright

They say you got to stay hungry (I've been hungry all day, I wish i had some food in my carrel)

hey baby I’m just about starving tonight (okay, so i'm not THAT hungry. I'm such a spoiled American. *hangs head in shame*)

I’m dying for some action (I could use a little bit of excitement around here. any ideas??)

I’m sick of sitting ’round here trying to writeThis book (AMEN! I'm sick of sitting here trying to write this thesis!)

I need a love reaction (I wouldn't be oppossed to that).

come on now baby give me just one look

You can’t start a fire.. (This weekend while I'm camping i'll get to start a fire)

Go to Washington, D.C. You know you want to...

You know, I kinda do want to. That would be fun.
