Take One Moment Into My Hands

Amid Monday mornings, train strikes, sleepy eyes and too much work to do... sometimes only Springsteen will do.

My ex-boyfriend used to say it was funny that a multi-millionaire rockstar was still going for the 'working all day in my daddy's garage' schtick, but I say that's not the point.

Also, I think it was my favourite writer Emma Forrest (a true Bruce lover), who pointed out that 'mister, I ain't a boy, I'm a man' is the most immature phrasing ever, totally something a boy rather than a man would say.   Which only adds to its charm.

We love him.  Well, women do, anyway.

And when you're leaving the house before 7am on a Monday, it's Bruce that you need in your ears.  For such times 'The Promised Land' is still the best.

Working all day in my daddy's garage
Driving all night chasing some mirage
Pretty soon little girl I'm gonna take charge
The dogs on Main Street howl
'Cause they understand
If I could take one moment into my hands
Mister I ain't a boy, no, I'm a man
And I believe in a promised land
I've done my best to live the right way
I get up every morning and go to work each day
But your eyes go blind and your blood runs cold
Sometimes I feel so weak I just want to explode
Explode and tear this whole town apart
Take a knife and cut this pain from my heart
Find somebody itching for something to start

Oh, yes please, Bruce.  Yes please.
