No Surrender Lyrics

Artist: Bruce Springsteen


Well, we bursted out of class
Had to get away from those fools
We learned more from a 3-minute record, baby
Than we ever learned in school
Tonight I hear the neighborhood drummer sound
I can feel my heart begin to pound
You say you're tired and you just want to close your eyes
And follow your dreams down

Chorus:
Well, we made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Like soldiers in the winter's night
With a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender

Well, now young faces grow sad and old
And hearts of fire grow cold
We swore blood brothers against the wind
Now I'm ready to grow young again
And hear your sister's voice calling us home
Across the open yards
Well maybe we'll cut someplace of own
With these drums and these guitars

'Cause we made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Blood brothers in the stormy night
With a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender

Now on the street tonight the lights grow dim
The walls of my room are closing in
There's a war outside still raging
You say it ain't ours anymore to win
I want to sleep beneath
Peaceful skies in my lover's bed
With a wide open country in my eyes
And these romantic dreams in my head

Once we made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Blood brothers in a stormy night
With a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender

Ohhhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhhh

Bruce played this on Sat in Cardiff.... it's our anthem from the early '80's,the words are still emotive and a reminder to keep the dream alive - no retreat, no surrender. Thanks Bruce... and yes, it is 'busted'!

A very under-rated song in the boss' catalogue

I love Bruce and even more so after Hard Rock Calling last summer in London. I only 'found' this song when downloading a load of his other stuff recently. Wish I'd found it sooner, along with "Gypsy Biker".

Great, great song. I play it loud and my head swells at every turn. Probably the only Nigerian who loves it. Great, great song!!!!!!!

The Boss certainly lives up to his name with this one. My all time favourite song. Like the comment earlier says, a homerun when he belts it out live!
by Jens on 9/3/2011 5:26pm

by Doctawho on 10/21/2011 8:48am
Need chills up your spine?

Grab The Boss and The E Street Band live in London and listen to this baby, simply awesome and inspirational!!

They do not write songs like this anymore and they never will!!

My mission statement:

I want to sleep beneath
Peaceful skies in my lover's bed
With a wide open country in my eyes
And these romantic dreams in my head
by Vinko on 4/5/2012 7:17am
