HIGH HOPES

Live 14 Jan 2014 version


[Jimmy Fallon spoken intro:] Alright everybody, performing the title terack from their brand new album High Hopes, please welcome Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!

[Spoken intro:] This is for Stevie, in Norway, we miss you.

Monday morning runs to Sunday night
A scream slow me down before the new year dies
Well it won't take much to kill a loving smile
And every mother with a baby crying in her arms, singing
Give me help, give me strength
Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
Give me love, give me peace
Don't you know these days you pay for everything
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes

From the city, coming from the wild
I see a breathless army breaking like a cloud
Smother love, they're gonna shoot your hopes
Before the meek inherit they'll learn to hate themselves
Give me help, give me strength
Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
Give me love, give me peace
Don't you know these days you pay for everything
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes

Yeah!

Give me help, give me strength
Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
Give me love, give me peace
Don't you know these days you pay for everything
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes

Tell me someone now, what's the price
I wanna buy some time and maybe live my life
I wanna have a wife, I wanna have some kids
I wanna look in their eyes and know they'll stand a chance

Give me help, give me strength
Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
Give me love, give me peace
Don't you know these days you pay for everything
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes

Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes
Got high hopes

[Jimmy Fallon spoken outro:] Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, they'll be playing anoyther song after the break, come on back everybody!

For his only TV appearance to promote the High Hopes album, Bruce Springsteen appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on 14 Jan 2014, the album's official release date. He first performed GOVERNOR CHRISTIE TRAFFIC JAM with Jimmy Fallon as part of a comedy skit, and then, after a 15-minute interview with Fallon, he joined the extended E Street band (including Tom Morello and Patti Scialfa, but not Steven Van Zandt) and performed three songs from the new album: HIGH HOPES, HEAVEN'S WALL, and JUST LIKE FIRE WOULD.
