Bruce Springsteen – Badlands lyrics

There’re lights out tonight, trouble in the heartland
Got a head-on collision, smashin’ in my guts, man
I'm caught in a crossfire, that I don't understand

But there's one thing I know for sure, girl
I don't give a damn for the same old played out scenes
Honey, I don't give a damn, for just the in-betweens

Honey, I want the heart, I want the soul, I want control right now
You better listen to me, baby
Talk about a dream; try to make it real
You wake up in the night, with a fear so real
You spend your life waitin’ for a moment, that just don't come
Well, don't waste your time waiting

Badlands, you’ve gotta live it every day
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you’ve gotta pay
Keep pushin’ until it's understood
And these badlands start treating us good

Workin’ in the field
Till you get your back burned
Workin’ 'neath the wheels
Till you get your facts learned

Baby, I got my facts, learned real good right now
You better get it straight, darling
Poor man wanna be rich, rich man wanna be king
And a king ain’t satisfied, till he rules everything
I wanna go out tonight, I wanna find out what I got

Now, I believe in the love that you gave me
I believe in the faith, that could save me
I believe in the hope and I pray that someday it
Will raise me above these

Badlands, you’ve gotta live it every day
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you’ve gotta pay
Keep pushin’ till it's understood
And these badlands start treating us good
Whoa, whoa, whoa

(Guitar & Sax Solo)

Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmm
Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmm
Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmm
Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmm

For the ones who had a notion, a notion deep inside
That it ain’t no sin to be glad you're alive
I wanna find one face, that ain’t looking through me
I wanna find one place, I wanna spit in the face of these

Badlands, you’ve gotta live it every day
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you’ve gotta pay
Keep pushin’ until it's understood
And these badlands start treating us good

A-whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Badlands, a-whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Badlands, a-whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Badlands, a-whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Badlands, a-whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Badlands, a-whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
