Stolen Car


Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

I met a little girl and I settled down In a little house out on the edge of town We got married, and swore we'd never part Then little by little we drifted from each other's heart At first I thought it was just restlessness That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep In the end it was something more I guess That tore us apart and made us weep And I'm driving a stolen car Down on Eldridge Avenue Each night I wait to get caught But I never do She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote When our love was young and bold She said last night she read those letters And they made her feel one hundred years old And I'm driving a stolen car On a pitch black night And I'm telling myself I'm gonna be alright But I ride by night and I travel in fear That in this darkness I will disappear Alternate version on Tracks: I met a little girl and I settled down In a little house out on the edge of town We got married and swore we'd never part Then little by little we drifted from each other's heart Now I'm driving a stolen car on a pitch-black night And I'm doin' my best to make it through Well I'm just sittin' down here at the Stanton light I wanna get caught but I never do At first I thought it was just restlessness That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep In the end it was something more I guess That tore us apart and made us weep And I'm driving a stolen car waitin' on that little red light I keep tellin' myself everything's gonna be alright But I ride by night and I travel in feat That in this darkness I might just disappear She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote When our love was young and we were bold She said last night she read those letters And they made her feel a hundred years old There's a river that runs by that little town down into the sea It was there in the shade I laid my body down As she flowed on so effortlessly Now there's a party tonight out off the county line There'll be dancing down at Seven Trees From these banks I can see those party lights shine Maybe she's there, maby she's looking for me Last night I dreamed I made the call I swore to return to stay forevermore Once again we stood on the wedding steps at Victory Hall And walked arm in arm through the chapel door I can remember how good I felt inside When the preacher said "Son you may kiss the bride" But as I leaned over to touch her pretty lips I felt it all slip away through my fingertips And I'm driving a stolen car through a pitch-black night I keep telling myself everything's gonna be alright But I ride by night and I travel in fear No matter what I do or where I drive Nobody ever sees me when I ride by
