                      DANCING IN THE DARK
                         Bruce Springsteen

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
                    C#m    E                C#m                     B
I ain't nothing but tired      Man I'm just tired and bored with myself
          Abm   B         Abm                   F#
Hey there baby    I could use just a little help

F#                                                       E
You can't start a fire, you can't start a fire without a spark
               C#m  E                   C#m             B
This gun's for hire  even if we're just dancing in the dark

Messages keep 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 there is

(repeat chorus)

Abm                         B
    You sit around getting older
E                            F#              Abm
    There's a joke here somewhere and it's on me
    I'll shake the world off my shoulders
E                     F#
    Come on baby the laugh's on me

Stay on the streets of this town and they'll be carving you up all right
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

F#                                                         E
You can't start a fire sitting round crying over a broken heart
               C#m  E                     C#m              F#
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
               C#m  E                     C#m            B
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
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Hey baby (+ sax outro)
