Born To Run Lyrics By Bruce Springsteen

    in the day we sweat it out on the streets
    of a runaway american dream
    at night we ride through mansions of glory
    in suicide machines
    sprung from cages out on highway 9
    chrome wheeled fuel injected and steppin’ out over the line
    oh baby this town rips the bones from your back
    it’s a death trap it’s a suicide rap
    we gotta get out while we’re young
    cause tramps like us baby we were born to run
    yes girl we were

    wendy let me in i wanna be your friend
    i want to guard your dreams and visions
    just wrap your legs ’round these velvet rims
    and strap your hands across my engines
    together we could break this trap
    we’ll run till we drop baby we’ll never go back
    oh will you walk with me out on the wire
    cause baby i’m just a scared and lonely rider
    but i gotta know how it feels
    i want to know if love is wild babe
    i want to know if love is real
    oh can you show me


    beyond the palace hemipowered drones
    scream down the boulevard
    the girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
    and the boys try to look so hard
    the amusement park rises bold and stark
    kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
    i wanna die with you wendy on the streets tonight
    in an everlasting kiss

    4 the highways jammed with broken heroes
    on a last chance power drive
    everybody’s out on the run tonight
    but there’s no place left to hide
    together wendy we can live with the sadness
    i’ll love you with all the madness in my soul
    oh someday girl i don’t know when
    we’re gonna get to that place
    where we really want to go and we’ll walk in the sun
    but till then tramps like us
    baby we were born to run

    oh honey tramps like us
    baby we were born to run
    come on with me tramps like us
    baby we were born to run
