The Price You Pay

Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

You make up your mind, you choose the chance you take You ride to where the highway ends and the desert breaks Out on to an open road you ride until the day You learn to sleep at night with the price you pay Now with their hands held high, they reached out for the open skies And in one last breath they built the roads they'd ride to their death Driving on through the night, unable to break away From the restless pull of the price you pay (Chorus) Oh, the price you pay, oh, the price youpay Now you can't walk away from the price you pay Now they'd come so far and they'd waited so long Just to end up caught in a dream where everything goes wrong Where the dark of night holds back the light of day And you've gotta stand and fight for the price you pay (Chorus) Little girl down on the strand With that pretty little baby in your hands Do you remember the story of the promised land How he crossed the desert sands And could not enter the chosen land On the banks of the river he stayed To face the price you pay So let the games start, you better run you little wild heart You can run through all the nights and all the days But just across the county line, a stranger passing through put up a sign That counts the men fallen away to the price you pay And girl before the end of the day, I'm gonna tear it down and throw it away ______ Version alternative avec ce paragraphe inédit chanté en live : Now some say forget the past, and some say don't look back But for every breath you take well buddy you leave a track And though it don't seem fair, for every smile that plays A tear must fall somewhere
