Man I'm just tired and bored with myself

This song is excactly how I feel about myself and my life...



Dancing in the Dark
(Bruce Springstein cover)

from Hey Baby, I'm Just About Starving Tonight

I get up in the evening
and I ain't got nothing to say
I come home in the morning
I go to bed feeling the same way
I ain't nothing but tired
Man I'm just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

Message keeps getting clearer
radio's on and I'm moving 'round the place
I check my look in the mirror
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man I ain't getting nowhere
I'm just living in a dump like this
There's something happening somewhere
baby I just know that there is

You can't start a fire
you can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

You sit around getting older
there's a joke here somewhere and it's on me
I'll shake this world off my shoulders
come on baby this laugh's on me

Stay on the streets of this town
and they'll be carving you up alright
They say you gotta stay hungry
hey baby I'm just about starving tonight
I'm dying for some action
I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write this book
I need a love reaction
come on now baby gimme just one look

You can't start a fire sitting 'round crying over a broken heart
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
You can't start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Hey baby

Dancing In The Dark by Bruce Springsteen

Album: Born In The U.S.A.
Date: 1984
U.S. Chart: 2
U.K. Chart: 4
Bruce Springsteen

This won Springsteen his first Grammy. In 1985, it got the award for Best Male Vocal.

The video featured Courtney Cox as an adoring fan who gets to dance on stage with Bruce. She landed a role on the sitcom Family Ties soon after.

In the 1985 Rolling Stone reader's poll, this was voted Single of the Year

This was the last song written for Born In The U.S.A.
Springsteen wrote this about his difficulty writing a hit single and his frustration trying to write songs that will please people. Ironically, it was a hit single.

Springsteen wrote this after his manager, Jon Landau, demanded a hit single from the album. After a brief altercation, he complied and wrote this that same night. Springsteen had over 70 songs written for Born In The U.S.A., but his manager, Jon Landau, wanted a guaranteed hit to ensure superstar status for Springsteen.
