• Bor to Run

    Thunder road

  • The screen door slams, Mary's dress sways
    Like a vision she dances across the porch. As the radio plays
    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
    Hey that's me and I want you only
    Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again
    Don't run back inside, darling you know just what I'm here for
    So you're scared and you're thinking
    That maybe we ain't that young anymore
    Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
    You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
    Oh and that's alright with me
    You can hide `neath your covers and study your pain
    Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
    Waste your summer praying in vain
    For a saviour to rise from these streets
    Well now I'm no hero, that's understood
    All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood
    With a chance to make it good somehow
    Hey what else can we do now?
    Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair
    Well the night's busting open
    This two lanes will take us anywhere
    We got one last chance to make it real
    To trade in these wings on some wheels
    Climb in back, Heaven's waiting on down the tracks
    Oh-oh come take my hand
    We're riding out tonight to case the promised land
    Oh-oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road,
    Lying out there like a killer in the sun
    Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
    Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold, Thunder Road
    Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
    And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
    From your front porch to my front seat
    The door's open but the ride it ain't free
    And I know you're lonely and there's words that I ain't spoken
    But tonight we'll be free, all the promises'll be broken
    There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
    They haunt this dusty beach road
    In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
    They scream your name at night in the street
    Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
    And in the lonely cool before dawn
    you hear their engines roaring on
    But when you get to the porch they're gone
    On the wind, so Mary climb in
    It's a town full of losers and I'm pulling out of here to win.
