Life itself Lyrics:

Life Itself
We met down in the valley, where the wine of love and destruction flows
There in that curve of darkness where flowers of temptation grow
I left the rest for the others it was you and nothing else
You felt so good to me baby, as good as life itself

You were life itself, rushing over me
Life itself, the wind in the black elms
Life itself, in your heart and in your eyes
I can’t make it without you

I knew you were in trouble, anyone could tell
You carried your little black book from which all your secrets fell
You squandered all your riches, your, your beauty and your wealth
Like you had no further use for, for life itself

You were life itself, rushing over me
Life itself, the wind in the black elms
Life itself, in your heart and in your eyes
I can’t make it without you

Why are things that we treasure most slip away in time
‚Til to the music we grow deaf and to god’s beauty blind
Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart
‚Til we fall away in our own darkness
Stranger to our own hearts

And to life itself, rushing over me
Life itself, the wind in the black elms
Life itself, in your heart and in your eyes
I can’t make it without you

So here’s one for the road
Here’s one to your health
And to life itself, rushing over me
Life itself, the wind in the black elms
Life itself, in your heart and in your eyes
I can’t make it without you

Life itself
Life itself
Life itself
Life itself

Nachricht von Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen hat auf seiner Homepage folgende Nachricht veröffentlicht:

Dear Friends and Fans,

Some notes on the beginnings of Working on a Dream. During the last weeks of mixing Magic, we recorded a song called „What Love Can Do.“ It was sort of a „love in the time of Bush“ meditation. It was a great track but felt more like a first song of new record rather than something that would fit on Magic. So our producer Brendan O’Brien said, „Hey, let’s make another one right now!“ I thought, no, I haven’t done that since my first two records came out in the same year. And usually I don’t write that quickly. But that night I went back to my hotel in Atlanta and over the next week, I wrote several songs („This Life,“ „My Lucky Day,“ „Life Itself,“ along with „Good Eye“ and „Tomorrow Never Knows“) that formed the beginnings of our new album. Excited by the sounds we made on Magic I found there was more than enough fuel for the fire to keep going. Brendan and I demo’d these songs before we left the studio and agreed we’d somehow find time during the touring year to get this record made.

Over the past 10 years with Brendan, our ability to get records done and to work on a variety of projects at the same time (Yes, we can multi-task!) has allowed us to get a steadier stream of our best music out to our fans. This is something I’ve always wanted to do. We found time to book sessions, get the band while it was hot off the road, write and record a new record, while giving our audience what I hope was some of the best E Street shows we’ve ever done. We’re excited about you hearing this music and I just wanted to drop a line about how it all started. Have a great holiday and we’ll see you in the New Year!
