  • With her killer graces and her secret places that no boy can fill
    With her hands on her hips, oh
    And that smile on her lips because she knows that it kills me
    With her soft French cream
    Standing in that doorway like a dream
    I wish she'd just leave me alone
    Because French cream won't soften them boots
    And French kisses will not break that heart of stone
    With her long hair falling
    And her eyes that shine like a midnight sun
    Whoa-oh, she's the one
    She's the one

    That thunder in your heart at night when you're kneeling in the dark
    it say's you're never gonna leave her
    But there's this angel in her eyes that tells such desperate lies
    and all you want to do is believe her
    And tonight you'll try just one more time to leave it all behind
    And to break on through
    Oh, she can take you, but if she wants to break you
    she's gonna find out that ain't so easy to do
    And no matter where you sleep tonight or how far you run
    Whoa-oh, she's the one
    She's the one

    Oh oh, and just one kiss
    She's fill them long summer nights with her tenderness
    That secret pact you made
    Back when her love could save you from the bitterness
    Oh, she's the one
    Oh, she's the one
    Oh, she's the one
    Oh, she's the one
    Oh, she's the one
    Oh, she's the one Writer/s: Bruce Springsteen

  • Fifi from Venice FloridaMy favorite Bruce Springsteen song. Although not completely complimentary to the girl. It speaks to me of a motivated young musician not ready to settle down and give up his quest to become a successful rockstar songwriter performer. That would 'break' him so he goes ahead onward into his fate without her. A lovely song with the Bo Diddley beat, and great to dance to. I give it a 99%!
  • Derek from Great Barrington, MaBeen listening to this live for 30 years. It never, ever gets old.
  • Lisa from Pgh, PaHeard this song was written about Bruce's girlfriend at the time, Karen Darvin.
  • João Sousa from Porto, PortugalIt may very well be the best on Born To Run. It is that damn good.
  • Brian from Chalfont, PaThis song is very underated!!! Talk about a singing with emotions. The pure rawness of the vocals says it all.
  • Curtis from Cornwall On Hudson , NyAmen...on any other album it would be the best track!
  • Grayson from Cleveland, Ohvery underated song.
