Bruce Springsteen Livin’ in the Future Lyrics

sponsored links
A letter come blowin' in
On an ill wind
Somethin' 'bout me and you
Never seein' one another again

And what I knew had come
Stars struck deaf and dumb
Like when we kissed
That taste of blood on your tongue

[Chorus: x 2]
Don't worry, darlin'
No baby, don't you fret
We're livin' in the future
And none of this has happened yet

Woke up election day
Sky's gunpowder and shades of grey
Beneath the dirty sun
I whistle my time away

Then just about sun down
You come walkin' through town
Your boot heels clickin' like
The barrel of a pistol spinnin' round


The earth it gave away
The sea rose towards the sun
I opened up my heart to you
It got all damaged and undone

My ship Liberty sailed away
On a bloody red horizon
The grounds keeper opened the gates
And let the wild dogs run

Alone I limp through town
A lost cowboy at sundown
Got my monkey on a leash
Got my ear tuned to the ground

My faith's been torn asunder
Tell me is that rollin' thunder
Or just the sinkin' sound
Of somethin' righteous goin' under


None of this has happened yet
None of this has happened yet
None of this has happened yet
None of this has happened yet

Na na na na, na na na na-na [Repeat until fade]
