All That Heaven Will Allow
Bruce Springsteen

I got a dollar in my pocket there ain't a cloud up above
I got a picture in a locket that says baby i love you
Well if you didn't look then boys then fellas don't go lookin' now
Well here she comes a-walkin' all that heaven will allow

Say hey there mister bouncer now all i wanna dance
But i swear i left my wallet back home in my workin' pants
C'mon slim slip me in man i'll make it up to you somehow
I can't be late i got a date with all that heaven will allow

Rain and storm and dark skies well now they don't mean a thing
If you got a girl that loves you and who wants to wear your ring
So c'mon mister trouble we'll make it through you somehow

We'll fill this house with all the love all that heaven will allow

Now some may wanna die young man young and gloriously
Get it straight now mister hey buddy that ain't me

'cause i got something on my mind that sets me straight and walking proud
And i want all the time all that heaven will allow

In Peace,

There is the mister, buddy reference again with another Mister Trouble thrown in.

Wasn't Tunnel of Love released when Springsteen was in the process of a divorce with Julianne Philips and an affair with Patti Scailfa?

Remember he was caught on the balcony of a hotel with his boxers on and Patti in the room.

I heard he paid Julianne a large sum of money so she couldn't talk. Don't know if this is true or not.

So, I guess he's singing about one of them.
