Protection
   ------Bruce Springsteen

Night after night
I keep holding on
You say you love me
Then you leave me so lonely
Baby I don't believe a single thing you're sayin'
I think it's all some evil game you're playin'

Still all day long all I do is think about you
You got me believin' that I can't live without you
Well if you want it, here's my confession
Baby I can't help it, you're my obsession

Protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love
Protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love

The phone rings in the middle of the night
When I pick it up, you won't answer
A knock on the door, I rush down the stairs
When I open up, there's noone there
Out in the darkness I feel your eyes on me.
I lay in bed and feel your hands upon me.
Well lets get of, just my imagination.


You keep me in doubt,
believe I can't live without your
protection

Protection, that's what I need
more protection, baby, from your love
Protection, that's what I need
more protection, baby, from your love

We stand alone, at my window
And stare out, at the shadows down below
I feel your fingers on my face
I want to stay, I want to run away

Protection, that's what I need
I need protection, baby, from your love
Protection, that's what I need
more protection, baby, from your love

I stand alone at my windowI see you waiting
in the shadows down below
I feel your fingers on my face
I know I wanna stay but
I wanna run away

Protection, that's what I need
more protection, baby, from your love
Protection, that's what I need
more protection, baby, from your love

Protection, that's what I need
more protection, baby, from your love
Protection, that's what I need
more protection, baby, from your love
