I could be here and now

One of These Things First :: Nick Drake
from the album, Bryter Layter (1970)

“I could have been your pillar,
could have been your door,
I could have stayed beside you,
could have stayed for more.
Could have been your statue,
could have been your friend,
a whole long lifetime could have been the end.
I could be yours so true.”

Born to Run :: Bruce Springsteen
from the album, Born to Run (1975)

Happy Birthday, Born to Run! 40 years!

“Just wrap your legs ’round these velvet rims,
and strap your hands ‘cross my engines,
together we could break this trap.
We’ll run till we drop,
baby we’ll never go back,
oh-oh, will you walk with me out on the wire,
`cause baby I’m just a scared and lonely rider,
but I gotta know how it feels;
I want to know if love is wild.”
