I get up in the evening
and I ain't got nothing to say
I come home in the morning
I go to bed feeling the same way
I ain't nothing but tired
Man I'm just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can't start...

    Working class love, middle class love, all kind of love, can't start a fire without a spark, need a love reaction if it just a fuck, at least its a fuck.

    I just sent the video to my young son who is struggling with girls, boredom frustration. I grew up with the song, the Boss in the 80s. I think it's about finding a guy just wanting something different, a spark as he says. if that ends up being just a shared dance in the dark with someone, he would be content. It doesn't have to be a romance, or a life long commitment, Just a moment to share with someone in the dark shadows of life.

    I think it's about depression. Or maybe about winning against depression. He needs to do something because if not he'll continue to feel "worthless". He wants to be happy again, but he is not happy with the way he is now (wanting to change the way he looks-he is inside). He's so tired of those feelings he even has considered suicide but he won't if he finds suport in whoever he's signing to.

    My brother swears it's about a hit man. I don't think so.
