Bruce Springsteen lyrics -- Bruce Springsteen shows -- Bruce Springsteen records

Song title: Two for the road


Two for the road

It’s one for the money, one for the show
I got one kiss for you honey so come on let’s go
I didn’t see it coming but girl now I know
It takes one for the running but two for the road

One thousand dreams whispered in the dark
But a dream’s just a dream in one empty heart
It takes more than one to rev it up and go
So let’s get it running, we’re two for the road

Two one-way tickets and a diamond ring
Hell it don’t matter what the rain might bring
When this world treats you hard and cold
I’ll stand beside you, we’re two for the road

When you’re alone my love will shine the light
Through the dark and starless night
I’ll hold you close and never let you go
Come on now honey, we’re two for the road
I’ll stand beside you and I’ll never go
Come on now girl, we’re two for the road

Notes: B-side of Tunnel of Love.
