Take 'Em As They Come  - Bruce Springsteen

    Last night I dreamed we was running through the outlands
    Tears streaming, your pretty face all a wreck
    (I held your daddy's gun in my tremblin' hands
    And down the highway another stranger comes
    You gotta take 'em baby when they come.

    Little girl put on your best dress
    'Cause we're goin' out on the town tonight
    (Better bring along your switchblades)
    'Cause for sure some fool's gonna wanna fight
    You've got to take 'em baby as they come


    You gotta take 'em, take 'em as they come, girl
    Take 'em as they come, girl
    Take 'em as they come, girl
    Take 'em baby as they come

    God save the rider in the black night
    Save the man who taught that it was right
    To do what they have done
    To become what we have become
    You gotta take 'em when they come
    Little girl, gone are the days
    Faded away into a clear blue night
    And all the vows that we made
    Lie shattered and broken in the morning light;
    You gotta take 'em when they come


    I know your heart is breaking
    I can feel it too
    Though my finger on the trigger's shakin'
    Here I swear to you
    If I could take all your sorrow so that you'd never cry, girl, or be blue
    (Come tommorow)
    That's what I'd do for you, pretty one
    I swear I'll take 'em baby when they come
