Living Proof
Bruce Springsteen Lyrics


Well now on a summer night, oh in a dusky room
Come a little piece of the Lord's undying light
Crying like he swallowed the fiery moon
In his mother's arms it was all the beauty I could take
Like the missing words to some prayer that I could never make
Oh, in a world so hard and dirty so fouled and confused
Searching for a little bit of God's mercy
I found living proof

Well, I put my heart and soul, babe, I put 'em high upon a shelf
Right next to the faith, the faith that I'd lost in myself
I went down into the desert city
Just tryin' so hard to shed my skin
I crawled deep into some kind of darkness
Lookin' to burn out every trace of who I'd been
You do some sad, sad things baby
When it's your you 're tryin' to lose
You do some sad and hurtful things
I've seen living proof

You shot through my anger and rage
To show me my prison was just an open cage
There were no keys no guards
Oh, just one frightened man and some old shadows for bars

Well now all that's sure on the boulevard
Is that life is just a house of cards
As fragile as each and every breath
Of this boy sleepin' in our bed
Tonight let's lie beneath the eaves, babe
Just a close band of happy thieves
And when that train comes we'll get on board
And steal what we can from the treasures, treasures of the Lord
It's been along long drought baby
Tonight the rain's pourin' down on our roof
Oh, looking for a little bit of God's mercy
I found living proof
Oh living proof
I found living proof
Yeah, living proof
I found living proof
Oh living proof
I found living proof
Oh
Yeah I found living proof
I found living proof
I found living proof
Oh

Lookin' to burn out every trace of who I'd been
You do some sad sad things baby

ChVh19781984

C'mon zacc !

Well now on a summer night in a dusky room
ある夏の夜 薄暗い部屋で
Come a little piece of the Lord's undying light
主が放つ光の中から使者が訪れる
Crying like he swallowed the fiery moon ,
爛々とした月を飲み込んだように泣いている
In his mother's arms .
it was all the beauty I could take
私が知る全ての美しさを湛えた,彼の母親の腕の中で…
Like the missing words to some prayer that I could never make ,
忘れられた言葉を紡ぐ祈りのように…
In a world so hard and dirty , so fouled and confused
汚れもがき,混沌と腐敗した世界で…
Searching for a little bit of God's mercy
神の慈悲のカケラを探して
I found living proof
生きている証拠を見つけた

I put my heart and soul I put 'em high upon a shelf
私は魂と心を…高い棚の上に…
Right next to the faith the faith that I'd lost in myself
見失っていた信仰の…信仰の隣に置いた
I went down into the desert city
砂漠の町に行った時
Just tryin' so hard to shed my skin
疲れた肌を休ませ
I crawled deep into some kind of darkness
私は深い闇の底を這い蹲り…
Lookin' to burn out every trace of who I'd been
己のすべての痕跡を焼く尽くすために探した
You do some sad sad things
愛しい人よ,あなたは哀しい事をする…
When it's you you're tryin' to lose
あなたの全てを投げ出そうとする時
You do some sad and hurtful things
それは、悲しみ人を傷つける
I've seen living proof
生きている証拠を見てきた

You shot through my anger and rage
あなたは私の怒りという怒りを撃ち抜く…
To show me my prison was just an open cage
私の中の罪の檻には
There were no keys, no guards
もはや鍵も警備員もない
Just one frightened man and some old shadows for bars
そこにあるのは、怯えた男とバーに染み付いた古い影だけだ

Well now all that's sure on the boulevard
まあすべては…広い並木道にある、
Is that life is just a house of cards
そう,人生はトランプで建てた家みたいなもの
As fragile as each and every breath
ちょっとした吐息で壊れやすい
Of this boy sleepin' in our bed
私たちのベッドで眠っているこの少年の…
Tonight let's lie beneath the eaves
嘘の庇の下を今夜覗いてみよう
Just a close band of happy thieves
愉快な泥棒たちが演り終え…
And when that train comes we'll get on board
その列車が来て…それに乗り込む時
And steal what we can from the treasures, treasures of the Lord
主の宝物の中から盗んだんだ…
It's been a long long drought
それは随分と喉を渇わかしていたよ
Tonight the rain's pourin' down on our roof
雨が我々の屋根の上に降り注ぐ今夜
Looking for a little bit of God's mercy
神の慈悲のかけらを探して
I found living proof
生きている証拠を見つけた

Any other Catholics out there always trapped in a vortex of feeling a slurry of 1) gratitude for every blessing like functioning legs and not being homeless atm BUT AT THE SAME TIME 2) massive guilt because you haven't solved homelessness nor spend 247 helping people and have a too big carbon footprint???

This song to me expresses that.
"Like the missing words to some prayer that I could never make/
In a world so hard and dirty so fouled and confused/
Searching for a little bit of God's mercy/
I found living proof/
I put my heart and soul I put 'em high upon a shelf/
Right next to the faith the faith that I'd lost in myself./
I went down into the desert city/
Just tryin' so hard to shed my skin/
I crawled deep into some kind of darkness/
Lookin' to burn out every trace of who I'd been."

People didn't like these albums but Bruce's voice peaked on the early 90s

This was the performance that got me into Bruce to begin with and Lucky Town is a great album.

The energy coming out of that song....a live act masterpiece from the master of the live performance.

I was working out one day and listening to this I had a kind of out of body experience. Amazing.

This was the time when Mr Springsteen has got his children, happily married. I sat in the woods, drumming. But, miraculously, I sensed him there, always.
