歌詞

Roulette (Album Version) - Bruce Springsteen (布魯斯·斯普林斯汀)

 

We left the toys out in the yard

 

I took my wife and kids

And left my home unguarded

 

We packed what we could into the car

 

No one here knows how it started

But suddenly everything was just so out of control

Now I want some answers

Mister I need to know

I hear all the talk but

I don't know what you're saying

But I think I got a good idea of the game

That you're playing

Roulette that's the name now

Roulette that's the game now

Roulette I don't believe what they're saying

Roulette and everybody's playing

 

I grew up here on this street

 

Where nothing moves

Just a strange breeze

 

In a town full of worthless memories

 

There's a shadow in my backyard

 

I've got a house full of things

That I can't touch

Well all those things

They won't do me much good now

I was a fireman out at ricers

I did my job

Mister I've been cheated

I feel like I've been robbed

I'm the big expendable

My life's just canceled null and void

But what are you goanna do about your new boy

Roulette you're playing with my life

Roulette with my kids and my wife

Roulette every day the stakes get bigger

Roulette a different finger on the trigger

 

Down by the river that talks

 

The night speaks in searchlights

And shortwave radio squawk

 

The police patrol the streets

 

But I've left behind the man I used to be

 

Everything he believed in

And all that belonged to me

I tried to find my way out to somewhere

Where I thought it be safe

They stopped me at the roadblock

They put up on the interstate

They put me in detention

But I broke loose and then I ran

They said they want to ask me a few questions

But I think they had other plans

Now I don't know who to trust

And I don't know what I can believe

They say they want to help me

But with the stuff they keep on saying'

I think those guys just wanna keep on playing

 

Roulette with my life

 

Roulette with my kids and my wife

Roulette the bullets in the chamber

Roulette who's the unlucky stranger

Roulette surprise you're dead

Roulette the guns to your head

Roulette the bullets spinning in the chamber

Roulette pull the trigger feel the click

No further danger
