Point Blank

The River - 10/10/1980

Bruce Springsteen

Do you still say your prayers little darling
Do you go to bed at night
Praying that tomorrow, everything will be allright
But tomorrows fall in number
In number one by one
You wake up and you're dying
You don't even know what from
Well they shot you point blank
You been shot in the back
Baby point blank
You been fooled this time, little girl, that's a fact
Right between the eyes, baby, point blank
Right between the pretty lies that they tell
Little girl you fell

You grew up where young girls they grow up fast
You took what you were handed and left behind what was asked
But what they asked baby wasn't right
You didn't have to live that life
I was gonna be your Romeo you were gonna be my Juliet
These days you don't wait for Romeos, you wait on that welfare check
And on all the pretty things that you can't ever have
And on all the promises
That always end up point blank,
Shot between the eyes
Point blank
Like little white lies you tell to ease the pain
You're walking in the sights, girl of point blank
And it's one false move and baby the lights go out

Once I dreamed we were together again
Baby you and me
Back home in those old clubs
The way we used to be
We were standing at the bar it was hard to hear
The band was playing loud and you were shouting something in my ear
You pulled my jacket off and as the drummer counted four
You grabbed my hand and pulled me out on the floor
You just stood there and held me, then you started dancing slow
And as I pulled you tighter I swore I'd never let you go
Well I saw you last night down on the avenue
Your face was in the shadows but I knew that it was you
You were standing in the doorway out of the rain
You didn't answer when I called out your name
You just turned and then you looked away
Like just another stranger waiting to get blown away
Point blank,
Right between the eyes
Point blank,
Right between the pretty lies you fell
Point blank,
Shot straight through the heart

Yeah point blank,
You've been twisted up till you've become just another part of it
Point blank,
You're walking in the sights
Point blank,
Living one false move, just one false move away
Point blank,
They caught you in their sights
Point blank,
Did you forget how to love, girl did you forget how to fight
Point blank,
They must have shot you in the head
Cause point blank,
Bang bang baby you're dead
Rcites tu toujours tes prires petite
Vas-tu au lit le soir
En priant que demain tout ira bien
Mais les lendemains sgrnent
Les uns aprs les autres
Tu tveilles et tu meurs,
Tu ne sais pas mme de quoi
Parce quils tont tire bout portant,
Tu as t tire dans le dos
Petite bout portant
Tu tes faite avoir cette fois-ci fillette, cest un fait
Juste entre les yeux petite, bout portant
Juste entre les jolis mensonges quils racontent
Fillette tu tombes

Tu as grandi l o les jeunes filles mrissent vite
Tu as pris ce quoi tu avais droit et laiss derrire toi ce quils rclamaient
Mais ce quils rclamaient petite ntait pas correct
Tu navais pas vivre cette vie
Je devais tre ton Romo, tu devais tre ma Juliette
A prsent tu nattends pas de Romo, tu attends ce droit au bien-tre
Et toutes ces jolies choses que tu nauras jamais
Et toutes ces promesses
Qui finissent toujours bout portant
Tire en plein entre les yeux
A bout portant
Comme ces petits mensonges que tu racontes pour adoucir la souffrance
Tu marches dans la ligne de mire petite dun coup bout portant
Un faux mouvement et petite tout steint

Une fois jai rv que nous tions de nouveau ensemble
Chrie toi et moi
De retour chez nous dans ces vieux clubs
Comme au bon vieux temps
Nous tions au bar, ce ntait pas facile de sentendre
Le groupe jouait fort et tu me criais quelque chose loreille
Tu as t ma veste et comme le batteur comptait quatre
Tu as attrap ma main et mas entran sur la piste
Tu restais simplement l immobile et me tenais, puis tu tes mise danser lentement
Et comme je te serrais plus prs contre moi, jai jur de ne jamais te laisser partir
Et je tai vue cette nuit sur lavenue
Ton visage tait dans lombre mais je savais que ctait toi
Tu attendais sous le porche, labri de la pluie
Tu nas pas rpondu quand jai cri ton nom
Tu tes juste dtourne et a regard ailleurs
Tout comme fait un tranger attendant de svanouir
A bout portant
En plein entre les yeux
A bout portant
Tout comme les jolis mensonges que tu balances
A bout portant
Touch en plein dans le cur

Ouais bout portant
Tu as t happe jusqu ce que tu fasses partie du jeu
A bout portant
Tu marches dans la ligne de mire
A bout portant
Partir dun faux mouvement juste dun faux mouvement
A bout portant
Ils ton prise dans leur viseur
A bout portant
As tu oubli comment aimer, petite as tu oubli comment te battre
A bout portant
Ils ont du tavoir la tte
Parce qu bout portant
Bang Bang petite tes morte
