No Surrender


Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

We busted out of class had to get away from those fools We learned more from a three-minute record than we ever learned in school Tonight I heart the neighborhood drummer sound I can feel my heart begin to pound You say you're tired and you just want to close your eyes and follow your dreams down We made a promise we swore we'd always remember No retreat, baby, no surrender Like soldiers in the winter's night with a vow to defend No retreat, believe me, no surrender Now young faces grow sad and old and hearts of fire grow cold We swore blood brothers against the wind Now I'm ready to grow young again And hear your sister's voice calling us home across the open yards Believin' we could cut someplace of our own With these drums and these guitars We made a promise we swore we'd always remember No retreat, believe me, no surrender Blood brothers in the stormy night with a vow to defend No retreat, believe me, no surrender Now on the street tonight the lights grow dim The walls of my room are closing in There's a war outside still raging, you say it ain't ours anymore to win We could sleep in the twilight by the river side With a wide open country in our hearts And these romanics dreams in our heads We made a promise we swore we'd always remember No retreat, baby, no surrender Like soldiers in the winter's night with a vow to defend No retreat, believe me, no surrender Alternate 3rd verse (Live 1975-'85): Now on the street tonight the lights grow dim The walls of my room are closing in But it's good to see your smiling face and to hear your voice again We could sleep in the twilight by the river side With a wide open country in our hearts And these romanics dreams in our heads
