Springsteen wrote the lyrics in his home in New Jersey.He recalled,’One day i was playing my guitar on the edge of the bed and the words born to run came to me.At first i thought it was the name of a movie or something I’d seen on a car.I liked the phrase because it suggested a cinematic drama that i thought would work with the music that I’d been hearing in my head.’
‘In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream at night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines.’
