  • When the night's quiet and you don't care anymore
    And your eyes are tired and there's someone at your door
    And you realize you want to let go
    And the weak lies in cold walls you embrace you
    At your insides and baby I ain't no liar, I walk
    Streets of fire
    Streets of fire
    Streets of fire
    Streets of fire
    Now I'm wandering, a loser down the tracks
    An' I'm lyin', but babe I can't go back
    'Cause in the darkness I hear somebody call my name
    And when you realize how they tricked you this time
    And it's all lies but I'm strung out on the wire, in these

    Streets of fire
    Streets of fire
    Streets of fire

    I live now, only with strangers
    I talk to only strangers
    I walk with angels that have no place
    And don't look at my face
    Don't come to my place
    'Cause I'm strung out on my wire, cross

    Streets of fire
    Streets of fire
    Streets of fire
    Streets of fire, oh yeah Writer/s: Bruce Springsteen

  • Brian from Chalfont, PaYou have got to love a person who sticks to his ethics and does not sell out.
  • Steve from Torrance, CaBruce's objection to the use of his song in the 1984 movie was due to the fact that the producers wanted the song remade with a younger, hipper vocalist. Had they used the original version, permission would have been granted.
