    don't you know that ain't no broken bottle
    that i picked up in my headlights
    on the other side of the nevada line
    where they live hard die young
    and have a good lookin' corpse every time

    She had nothing left to say
    So she said she loved me
    And I stood there grateful for the lie
    I'll drink enough of anything
    To make this girl look new again
    Drunk, drunk, drunk in the garden and the graves

    Sometimes I want to fall asleep
    And die off in a dream
    The music takes me back to my old past
    when I was young an' feelin' mean...

    Almost everything Dylan wrote But here are a couple that move me !

    There's a black Mercedes rollin' through the combat zone
    Your servants are half dead; you're down to the bone
    Tell me, tall man, where would you like to be overthrown
    Maybe down in Jerusalem or Argentina?

    There you stood on the edge of a feather
    Expecting to fly
    While I laughed I wondered whether
    I could wave goodbye
    Knowing that you'd gone.

    Bruce Springssteen's "Darkness on the Edge of Town" album is filled with great lyrics. Here's a line (or two) from each track...

    Poor man wanna be rich, rich man wanna be king
    And a king ain't satisfied till he rules everything (from Badlands)

    You know it's never over it's relentless as the rain
    Adam raised a Cain (Adam Raised a Cain)

    You're born with nothing
    and better off that way
    Soon as you've got something they send
    someone to try and take it away (Something in the Night)

    In Candy's room there are pictures of her heroes on the wall
    But to get to Candy's room you gotta walk the darkness of Candy's hall (Candy's Room)

    Some guys they just give up living
    And start dying little by little piece by piece
    Some guys come home from work and wash up
    Then go racin' in the street (Racing in the Street)

    The dogs on Main Street howl 'cause they understand
    If I could take one moment into my hands
    Mister I ain't a boy no I'm a man
    And I believe in a promised land (The Promised Land)

    Through the mansions of fear, through the mansions of pain
    I see my daddy walking through them factory gates in the rain (Factory)

    And the weak lies and the cold walls you embrace
    Eat at your insides and leave you face to face with
    Streets of fire (Streets of Fire)

    I've been working real hard, trying to get my hands clean
    Tonight we'll drive that dusty road from Monroe to Angeline
    To buy you a gold ring and pretty dress of blue
    Baby just one kiss will get these things for you (Prove It All Night)

    Well if she wants to see me
    You can tell her that I'm easily found
    Tell her there's a spot out 'neath Abram's Bridge
    And tell her there's a darkness on the edge of town (Darkness on the Edge of Town)

    Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
    There's still time to change the road you're on.
    And it makes me wonder.
