tonight: springsteen

...live, baby!

(at the time warner arena, formerly known as the charlotte bobcats arena)

the game plan is to get uptown at about 6:30, and scalp tickets.  ..according to reports, he'll play the entire "born to run" album as part of the show.

lyrics below:

in the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway american dream
at night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
sprung from cages out on highway 9, chrome wheeled, fuel injected and steppin' out over the line

baby this town rips the bones from your back, it's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
we gotta get out while we're young
'cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

wendy let me in i wanna be your friend i want to guard your dreams and visions
just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims and strap your hands across my engines
together we could break this trap we'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back
will you walk with me out on the wire
'cause baby i'm just a scared and lonely rider but i gotta find out how it feels
i want to know if love is wild girl i want to know if love is real

beyond the palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
the girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors and the boys try to look so hard
the amusement park rises bold and stark kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
i wanna die with you wendy on the streets tonight in an everlasting kiss

the highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
everybody's out on the run tonight but there's no place left to hide
together wendy we'll live with the sadness i'll love you with all the madness in my soul
someday girl i don't know when
we're gonna get to that place where we really want to go and we'll walk in the sun
but till then tramps like us, baby we were born to run

c'mon, wendy
tramps like us, baby we were born to run
