“Darkness on the Edge of Town” by Bruce Springsteen

Well, everybody’s got a secret, Sonny, something that they just can’t face. Some folks spend their whole lives trying to keep it. They carry it with them every step that they take.

Well, they’re still racing out at the Trestles,
But that blood it never burned in her veins,
Now I hear she’s got a house up in Fairview,
In a style she’s trying to maintain.

Tell her there’s a spot out ‘neath Abram’s Bridge,
And tell her, there’s a darkness on the edge of town.
There’s a darkness on the edge of town.

Well, everybody’s got a secret, Sonny,
Something that they just can’t face,
Some folks spend their whole lives trying to keep it,
They carry it with them every step that they take.
Till someday they’ll just cut it loose
Cut it loose or let it drag ’em down,
Where no one asks any questions,
or looks too long in your face,
In the darkness on the edge of town.
In the darkness on the edge of town.

Well now some folks are born into a good life,
And other folks get it anyway, anyhow,
Well now I lost my money and I lost my wife,
Them things don’t seem to matter much to me now.
Tonight I’ll be on that hill ’cause I can’t stop,
I’ll be on that hill with everything I got,
With

I’ll be there on time and I’ll pay the cost,
For wanting things that can only be found
In the darkness on the edge of town.
In the darkness on the edge of town.
