Aram's cover version

Well I'm riding down Kingsley figuring I'll get a drink
And I turn the radio up loud so I don't have to think
And I take her to the floor looking for a moment when the world seems right
And I tear into the guts, hmmm, of something in the night

Whoa, well you're born with nothing, and better off that way
Yeah soon as you've got something they send someone to try and take it away
Well you can ride this road 'till dawn without another human being in sight
Hmm just kids wasted on, hmmm, something in the night

Whoa nothing is forgotten or forgiven, when it's last time around
And I got stuff running 'round my head that I just can't live down

When we found the things we loved, crushed and dying in the dirt
We tried to pick up the pieces, get away without getting hurt
But they caught us at the state line, and burned our cars in one last fight
Left us running burned and blind, hmmm, chasing something in the night

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Liner Notes

Liner notes from the One Step Up / Two Steps Back: The Songs Of Bruce Springsteen tribute album:

Since my feet could reach the pedals, "Something In The Night" has been my quintessential, "ridin' alone in the car at night" song. Since I've lived on Kingsley Drive, the opening line of this song has become my car mantra every time I pull onto my street. Thanks Bruce for making it OK to keep a messy mind.
