I thought it was a good time for a Bruce tribute. Especially since I just learned that my counts today are a measly 1.8, a full unit off of my goal. While trying to process the news which seems both incredibly depressing, because I can't see myself leaving the hospital any time soon, and very positive, since I am getting better rather than worse, I thought of this song. Enjoy. 

By: Bruce Springsteen

Well it seems like I'm caught up in your trap again
And it seems like I'll be wearin' the same ol' chains
Good will conquer evil and the truth will set you free
And I know someday I'll find the key
Then I know somewhere I will find the key
Well it seems like I've been playin' the game way too long
And it seems the game I played has made you strong
Well when the game is over, I won't walk out the loser
And I know that I'll walk out of here again
And I know someday I'll walk out of here again

But now I'm trapped! Ooh yeah!
Trapped! Ooh yeah yeah!
Trapped! Ooh yeah!
Trapped! Ooh yeahhh!

Now it seems like I've been sleepin' in your bed too long
And it seems like you've been meanin' to do me harm
But I'll teach my eyes to see beyond these walls in front of me
And someday I'll walk out of here again
Yeah I know someday I'll walk out of here again


  1. One of my favorite Bruce songs! Hang in there, Tara!

  2. Your count may be going up ever so slowly, but try to remember that nothing in this cancer thing has gone as planned ~ except that chemo IS and WILL fight off every last speck of any cancer that may have thought they could hide. You are one tough cookie, and a funny one at that. Thanks for helping those of us fighting this battle put words to our feelings. It helps alot, know that while you may feel alone at times,as we all do, we are strong in numbers and will beat every last speck of cancer in our bodies. Here's to the end of November, a crappy month, and to a much healthier, happier December and holiday season.
