Thunder Road

This song is by Counting Crows.

This song is a cover of "Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen.
Well the screen door slams, Mary's dress waves,
And like a vision she dances across the porch,
While the radio plays,
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely,
Hey that's me and I want you only,
Don't turn me home again,
'Cause I just can't face myself alone again.
Don't run back inside darling,
You know just what I'm here for,
So you're scared and you're thinking,
That maybe we ain't that young any more,
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night,
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright,
And that's alright with me.

You can hide 'neath your covers,
And study your pain,
Make crosses from your lovers,
Throw roses in the rain,
Waste your summer praying in vain,
For a savior to rise from these streets,
Well listen I ain't no hero,
That's understood,
All the redemption I can offer, girl,
Is beneath this dirty hood,
With a chance to make it good somehow,
What else can we do now?

Except roll down the window,
And let the wind blow back your hair,
This night's busting open,
These two lanes will take us anywhere,
Oh we got one last chance to make it real,
We can trade in these wings on some wheels,
Climb in back, heaven's waiting down on the tracks,
Oh come take my hand,
We're riding out tonight to face the promised land,
Oh thunder road,
You know lying out there like a killer in the sun,
And oh I know it's late, we can make it if we run,
We can make it if we run, we can make it if we run.

Yeah so we got this guitar,
We learned how to make it talk, the car's out back,
If you're ready to take that long, long walk,
From your front porch to my front seat,
The door's open but the ride it ain't free,
Tonight you were lonely, for words that I ain't spoken,
But tonight we'll be free,
All the promises will be broken,
There were ghosts in the eyes,
Of all the boys you sent away,
And they haunt this dusty beach road,
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets,
We got one last chance to make it real,
We got one last chance to make it real.
