You 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 want to ride You don't want nothin', don't need 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
I would rather feel the hurt inside, yes I would darlin' Than know the emptiness your heart must hide Yes I would, darlin', yes I would, darlin' Yes I would, baby
Oh, you sit and wonder just who's gonna stop the rain Who'll ease the sadness, who's gonna quiet your pain It's a long dark highway and a thin white line Connecting baby, your heart to mine We're runnin' now but darlin' we will stand in time To face the ties that bind The ties that bind Now you can't break the ties that bind You can't forsake the ties that bind Oh

Jenn from Buffalo, NyMy dad asks me if i know what songs mean, and he told me wut this song means, he said, that a son can't leave behind what he knows, his family, and his memories.
Gene from San Diego, CaMan, this song is pretty intense. Love it.
Tim from Farmington, CtI'm a huge Bruce fan, but I've often wondered if the title and the line that specifically says "baby, can you walk the line" is a Johnny Cash reference, since in "Walk the Line" Johnny Cash "left the ends out for the tie that binds"...
Anyone have any idea?
Johnny from Los Angeles, CaBruce Springsteen can write songs like a madman!
Don from San Antonio, TxI've heard the demo track with the reverb on the drums that was mentioned above...completely crushing!!
This song rocks devastatingly. When this, "Two Hearts" and "Hungry Heart" rally together, buildings fall. I hate to say it, but I was not impressed with any of the recent live performances of this song. Yawn. It deserves a better performance!
