All the Way Home
Bruce Springsteen
Devils and Dust

I know what it's like to have failed baby
With the whole world lookin' on
I know what it's like to have been so sure
Wake up and find it all gone

Now you've got no reason to trust me
And tonight my confidence is a little rusty
It's getting late
And if you don't feel leavin' alone
Well maybe I can walk you baby
All the way home

Our old fears and failures
Well they do linger (oh yes they do)
Like the shadow of that ring
That was on your finger
Well those days darling,
Those days are dead and gone
Oh I could walk you baby
All the way home

Now there's things no one can rearrange
We both have yesterdays that we can't change
It's closing time - bartender's ringing last call
These days I don't stand on pride and
I've learned how to take a fall
Now the time has come
And if your first choice - he's gone
Well that's alright baby
'Cause I can walk you all the way home
All the way home
All the way home

In Peace,

Don't know about you, but it's odd to me that a married man can write love songs that aren't about his wife.

Springsteen isn't the only musician who does this, but he seems to have one of the largest collections of love songs with and without female names.

Sometimes, the names seem as though they could be male or female.

Such is the case with Jesse, Frankie, and Bobbie, which is used in Devils and Dust.
