Inspired by a Facebook post by John King (@notthatjohnking on twitter,) I quickly tweaked what he had written (just a touch) and added music. It became "If Springsteen Wrote My Life (Part I)" and inspired the entire "If Springsteen Wrote My Life"series. He's an old friend and a smart, funny guy.
I'm at the movies, the floor is all sticky
The kid right behind me is kicking my seat
His dad's on his cell phone, the previews are starting
I know in my heart I should get up and leave
By the time that I turn and get through "Excuse me"
The first punch is already done.
And if Springsteen wrote this, it'd sell millions son.
But I just got arrested and this ain't Born To Run...
