Artist: Bruce Springsteen
Album: Plugged

Well now on a summer night 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
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
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
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
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 of the Lord
It's been along long drought baby
Tonight the rain's pourin' down on our roof
Looking for a little bit of God's mercy
I found living proof

You ought to find God's mercy. If you didn't, I'd be disturbed. It's you, if you choose to be. You can stop for one second and do one small thing to help someone (carry a bag) that will make an immeasurable difference in their day and give them faith that not everyone is an asshole. That's what this song is about, giving and being thankful for what you have. I'll be living proof. I owe it to some folks. Do the same. You'll like this song even more if you do.

The song is about having his first son.

To me the song is about proof that there is more than just yourself and your own indulges. I have found living proof that there is more to life than me and what I have done, there is something to believe
