Across The Border
Bruce Springsteen Lyrics

Tonight my bag is packed
Tomorrow I'll walk these tracks
That will lead me across the border
Tomorrow my love and I
Will sleep beneath auburn skies
Somewhere across the border
We'll leave behind my dear
The pain and sadness we found here
And we'll drink from the Bravo's muddy water
Where the sky grows gray and wide
We'll meet on the other side
There, across the border

For you I'll build a house
High upon a grassy hill
Somewhere across the border
Where pain and memory
Pain and memory have been stilled
There, across the border
And sweet blossoms fill the air
Pastures of gold and green
Roll down into cool clear waters
And in your arms beneath open skies
I'll kiss the sorrow from your eyes
There, across the border

Tonight we'll sing the songs
I'll dream of you, my corazón
And tomorrow my heart will be strong
And may the saints blessing and grace
Carry me safely into your arms
There, across the border

For what are we
Without hope in our hearts
That someday we'll drink from God's blessed waters
And eat the fruit from the vine
I know love and fortune will be mine
Somewhere across the border

I feel bad for anyone who is not into Bruce.

The Iceman

I don't; if someone doesn't like him, then they're not missing out; Bruce's music wasn't meant for them. Also no one is a better person simply from liking him than one who doesn't like him, and vice-versa. Don't think otherwise; it's patronizing.

Moira Davis

agreed seen him twice in England

Jos Bruls

A great song from that great 1995 album "The Ghost of Tom Joad". Very emotional, very very Bruce.I think "across the border" really means the end of life, and what's on the other side - pastures of gold and green. It is a religious song, almost a gospel.

Nick Cox

Yikes I hope not but you mat be right,Bruce has some strange religious ideas.It resonates to me as a song for all the refugees in the world,especially relevant in these days with Trump's disgraceful border wall.


for me the boss is a candle in the window
