Last night I stood at your doorstep
Trying to figure out what went wrong
You just slipped something into my palm and you were gone

I could smell the same deep green of summer
'Bove me the same night sky was glowin'
In the distance I could see...

    I want to know what is it that gets pressed into his palm.

    Springsteen says this is a song about a guy who comes back to his town and recognizes nothing and is recognized by nothing. With your permission Bruce, I'd like to expand. To me, it's about a soldier returning home from war and realizing that nothing from his previous life, no matter how secure and comforting it was before, is the same. War changes everything and it will be a long walk home before things are ever the same again.
