Bruce Springsteen and Joe Grushecky--That's What Makes Us Great

Don’t tell me a lie
And sell it as a fact
I’ve been down that road before
And I ain’t goin’ back

And don’t you brag to me
That you never read a book
I never put my faith
In a con man and his crooks

I won’t follow down that path
And tempt the hands of fate
Aw, let’s turn this thing around
Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
That’s what makes us great

In the quiet of the night
I lie here wide awake
And I ask myself
Is there a difference I can make?

Nothing else needs to be said.
