Bruce Springsteen – The Ties That Bind lyrics

You’ve been hurt
And you're all cried out you say
You walk down the street
Pushin' people outta your way

You packed your bags
And all alone you wanna ride
You don't want nothin'
Don't want no one by your side

You're walkin' tough, baby
But you're walkin' blind
To the ties that bind
The ties that bind
Now, you can't break the ties that bind

Cheap romance
It's all just a crutch
You don't want nothin'
That anybody can touch

You're so afraid of being somebody's fool
Not walkin' tough, baby, not walkin' cool

You walk cool, but darlin'
Can you walk the line
And face the ties that bind
The ties that bind
Now you can't break the ties that bind

Whoa, ooo
I, I’d rather feel the hurt inside
Yes, I would darlin'
Than know, than know the emptiness
Your heart must hide
Yes, I would darlin'
Yes, I would darlin'
Yes, I would baby
