[Springsteen Video] – Jesus Was An Only Son

Bruce Springsteen played a great live version of Jesus Was An Only Son for the WH1 Storytellers.



Jesus was an only son
As he walked up Calvary Hill
His mother Mary walking beside him
In the path where his blood spilled
Jesus was an only son
In the hills of Nazareth
As he lay reading the Psalms of David
At his mother’s feet

A mother prays, “Sleep tight, my child, sleep well
For I’ll be at your side
That no shadow, no darkness, no tolling bell,
Shall pierce your dreams this night.”

In the garden at Gethsemane
He prayed for the life he’d never live,
He beseeched his Heavenly Father to remove
The cup of death from his lips

Now there’s a loss that can never be replaced,
A destination that can never be reached,
A light you’ll never find in another’s face,
A sea whose distance cannot be breached

Well Jesus kissed his mother’s hands
Whispered, “Mother, still your tears,
For remember the soul of the universe
Willed a world and it appeared.”

All The Way Home 06.06.2005


Come è possibile che siano passati già sei anni dal mio tour preferito?

I know what it’s like to have failed, baby
With the whole world lookin’ on
I know what it’s like to have soared
And come crashin’ like a drunk on a bar room floor

Now you got no reason to trust me
My confidence is a little rusty
But if you don’t feel like bein’ alone
Baby, I could walk you all the way home

Well now our old fears and failures
Baby, they do linger
Like the shadow of that ring
That was on your finger
Those days they’ve come and gone
Baby, I could walk you all the way home

Love leaves nothin’ but shadows and vapor
We go on, as is our sad nature
Now it’s some old Stones’
Song the band is trashin’
But if you feel like dancin’
Baby, I’m askin’

It’s comin’ on closing time
Bartender, he’s ringin’ last call
These days I don’t stand on pride
And I ain’t afraid to take a fall

So if you’re seein’ what you like
Maybe your first choice he’s gone
Well that’s all right
Baby, I could walk you all the way home

Baby, I could walk you all the way home

Ma quanto bella è questa canzone?

The Skulls met the Pythons
Down at the First Street station
Alliances have been made in alleyways
All across the nation
These boys live off the milk of a silver jet
And the love of sweet young women
Now the Pythons are down from old Englishtown
And they’re looking to do some livin’
Well the leader of the Pythons
Is a kid they just call Zero
Now Terry’s pop says these kids are some kind of monsters
But Terry says “No, pop, they’re just plain heroes”

Zero and Terry they found a love that burnes like wildfire
Now Terry’s daddy understood that this Zero was no good
A child, a thief and a liar
Well from out of the darkness that breaks the dawn
Zero rode like twilight
He said “Tonight’s the night, Blind Terry, come on”
Terry come on, tonight is the night
Pack your bags, baby

And together they ran like reindeers through the street
Like tomorrow the earth was gonna catch on fire
Now Terry’s dad hired some troopers to kill Zero and bring Terry back home
They crawled up in the night
Like firelight

Now snow-white troopers from the council of crime
Rode silver foxes through Terry’s field
Oh they met the Pythons down on Route 9 but they refused to yield
The Pythons fought with buzz guns
And the troopers with swords like light
And Zero and Terry they ran away
And the gang fought all through the night

Well now some folks say Zero and Terry got away
Other said they were caught and brought back
But still young pilgrims to this day
Go to that spot way down by the railroad track
Where the Troopers met the Pythons
Old timers cry on a hot August night
If you look hard enough, if you try
You’ll catch Zero and Terry and all the Pythons

Oh just hiking them streets of the sky
Just walkin’, hiking the streets of the sky
Just hiking the streets of the sky
Hey Zero
