Bruce Springsteen Teams Up with The Killers for New “Dustland” Single Before Broadway Show Returns

Share

Bruce Springsteen, as he promised last week, has teamed up with The Killers for a new single.

“Dustland” may be the first of many different singles that Bruce is featured on this year including some tracks with John Mellencamp.

Bruce will commence his “Springsteen on Broadway” beginning June 26th, with scalpers having a field day, selling tickets for $3,000 or more and ripping off fans left and right. Fun!

So what do you get when Bruce is matched with Brandon Flowers? Um, sounds a little like Meatloaf to me. Maybe it’s a tribute to Jim Steinman.

LYRICS:

Dustland fairytale beginning
Just another white trash
County kiss
In Sixty one
Long brown hair and foolish eyes
He looks just like you want him to
Some kind of slick chrome American prince
A blue jean serenade
Moon River what’d you do to me
But I don’t believe you
Saw Cinderella in a party dress but
She was looking for a night gown
I saw the devil wrapping up his hands
He’s getting ready for the show down
I saw the minute that I turned away
I got my money on a pawn tonight
A change came in disguise of revelation
Set his soul on fire
She said she’d always knew he’d come around
And the decades disappear like sinking
Ships, but we persevere God gives us hope
But we still fear
What we don’t know
The mind is poison

Castle in the sky
Sit stranded vandalized
The drawbridge is closing
Saw Cinderella in a party dress but
She was looking for a night gown
I saw the devil wrapping up his hands
He’s getting ready for the show down
I saw the ending when they turned the page
I threw my money and I ran away
Straight to the Valley of the Great Divide
Out where the dreams all hide
And where the wind don’t blow
Out here the good girls die
And the sky don’t snow
Out here the bird don’t sing
Out here the field don’t grow
Out here the bell don’t ring
Out here the bell don’t ring
Out here the good girls die

Now Cinderella don’t you go to sleep
It’s such a bitter form of refuge
Ah don’t you know the kingdom’s under siege
And everybody needs you
Is there still magic in the midnight sun
Or did you leave it back in sixty-one
In the cadence of a young man’s eyes
Out where the dreams all hide
