Bruce Springsteen


Growin' Up

I stood stonelike at midnight suspended in my masquerade
I combed my hair till it was just right and commanded the night brigade
I was open to pain and crossed by the rain and I walked on a crooked crutch
I strolled all alone through a fallout zone and came out
with my soul untouchedI hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they
said "Sit down" I stood upOoh-ooh growin' up
The flag of piracy flew from my mast my sails were set wing to wing
I had a jukebox graduate for first mate she couldn't
sail but she sure could sing
I pushed B-52 and bombed 'em with the blues with my gear
set stubborn on standing
I broke all the rules strafed my old high school never
once gave thought to landing
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they
said "Come down" I threw upOoh-ooh growin' up
I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere and
you know it's really hard to hold your breath
I swear I lost everything I ever loved or feared I was the cosmic kid
Well my feet they finally took root in the earth but
I got me a nice little place in the stars
I swear I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they
said "Sit down" I stood upOoh-ooh growin' upOoh-ooh growin' up
