For You (Remaster) - Bruce Springsteen

Princess cards she sends me with her regards

 

Barroom eyes shine vacancy

To see her you gotta look hard

 

Wounded deep in battle

I stand stuffed like some soldier undaunted

 

To her Cheshire smile

I'll stand on file she's all I ever wanted

 

But you let your blue walls

Get in the way of these facts

Honey get your carpetbaggers off my back

You wouldn't even give me time to cover my tracks

You said "Here's your mirror

And your ball and jacks"

But they're not what I came for

And I'm sure you see that too

I came for you for you I came for you

But you did not need my urgency

I came for you for you I came for you

But your life was one long emergency

And your cloud line urges me

 

And my electric surges free

 

Crawl into my ambulance

Your pulse is getting weak

 

Reveal yourself all now to me girl

While you've got the strength to speak

 

'Cause they're waiting for you

At Bellevue with their oxygen masks

 

But I could give it all to you now

If only you could ask

 

And don't call for your surgeon

Even he says it's too late

It's not your lungs this time

It's your heart that holds your fate

Don't give me my money honey

I don't want it back

You and your pony face and your Union Jack

Well take your local joker

And teach him how to act

I swear I was never that way

Even when I really cracked

 

Didn't you think I knew

That you were born with the power of a locomotive

Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound

And your Chelsea suicide with no apparent motive

You could laugh and cry in a single sound

 

Oh bright

 

And your strength is devastating

 

In the face of all these odds

 

Remember how I kept you waiting

 

When it was my turn to be the god

 

You were not quite half so proud

When I found you broken on the beach

 

Remember how I poured salt

On your tongue and hung just out of reach

 

And the band they played the homecoming theme

As I caressed your cheek

 

That ragged jagged melody

She still clings to me like a leech

 

But that medal you wore

On your chest always got in the way

Like a little girl with a trophy

So soft to buy her way

We were both hitchhikers

But you had your ear tuned to the roar

Of some metal-tempered engine

On an alien distant shore

So you left to find a better reason

Than the one we were living for

And it's not that nursery mouth

That I came back for

It's not the way you're stretched out on the floor

'Cause I've broken all your windows

And I've rammed through all your doors

And who am I to ask you to lick my sores

 

And you should know that's true

I came for you for you I came for you

But you did not need my urgency

I came for you for you I came for you

But your life was one long emergency

And your cloud line urges me

 

And my electric surges free
