Anonymous asked: I'm watching (and listening!) to Bruce live in Rio and there's a very real chance that I will fall behind on several projects that I need to have finished by Monday morning. It's all worth it, though, because Bruce's music makes me feel alive, makes me realize why I'm willing to have these deadlines to begin with.

Sorry to be so late posting your msg!

Glory Days, Yeah they’ll pass you by….
Happy 64th Birthday, Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen! (23 September 1949)

Anonymous asked: I honestly feel bad for people who don't understand Bruce like we do. The talent, the honesty, the rawness and the message...if you don't have that in your life you're not even living. I've grown up listening to Bruce from my parents and I totally get why I've seen my dad sit and cry to his songs. The music is real. It sums up your life. And more importantly it gives you perspective and hope.


The sky was falling and streaked with blood I heard you calling me, then you disappeared into the dust Up the stairs, into the fire Up the stairs, into the fire I need your kiss, but love and duty called you someplace higher Somewhere up the stairs, into the fire May your strength give us strength May your faith give us faith May your hope give us hope May your love give us love

The sky was falling and streaked with blood
I heard you calling me, then you disappeared into the dust
Up the stairs, into the fire
Up the stairs, into the fire
I need your kiss, but love and duty called you someplace higher
Somewhere up the stairs, into the fire

May your strength give us strength
May your faith give us faith
May your hope give us hope
May your love give us love

Anonymous asked: No confession. I come from a small shit town in the San Joaquin Valley in California. The wrong color, the wrong social class. But I made it. Not as big as Bruce, but I made it. Even though I have, I will always, to some extent, feel like an outsider. More inclined to talk to the hired help than the other guests. And Bruce's songs, well, I get them: there, but for the grace of God, go I. Live in Europe now, saw him this year for the first time. Sealed the deal for me.

Thank you for this moving submission. 

 

Three years ago my best friend went away from me, I wasn’t as cool as her, she thought I was useless.
I found myself completely alone. There was nobody here with me… Except him and his music. He helped me through that loneliness. And now, it may sound stupid, but he’s probably the person I believe in the most. Because I know he’s never gonna leave, he’ll always have a kind word for me. He’s my only true savior. My only true best friend.

There is so much going on in my life right now, I’m moving from my hometown all by myself, I’m starting a new school where I don’t know anyone, I’m starting a whole new life. All by myself. But Bruce and his music gives me hope and comfort and for that I am just eternally grateful to him.

Anonymous asked: I suffer from depression,anxiety and borderline disorder. I'm recovering from years of selfharming,being bullied and from being anorexic and bulimic. I owe my life to Bruce and his music. He's like the dad I never had. He has taught me so many things. He has been there since I was a kid. Whenever I feel alone I put on his music. He is the soundtrack of my life. I've seen him live 2 times and that were the happiest nights of my life. Thank you Bruce. Not enough space to write what you mean to me.
