Tonight down on Union Street
I'm thinking back baby to you and me
The way you used to be
Your words come back to me
From passing cars
Voices sing out
And empty bars
Where guitars ring out
We'd walk and talk about
Who'd be the ones to get out

You said
None but the brave
No one baby but the brave
Those strong enough to save
Something from what they gave.

None but the brave
No one baby but the brave

In my dreams these nights I see you my friend
The way you looked back then
On a night like this
I know that girl no longer exists
Except for a moment in some stranger's eyes
Or in the nameless girls in cars rushing by
That's where I find you tonight
And in my heart you still survive

None but the brave
No one baby but the brave
Those strong enough to save
Something from the love they gave.

None but the brave
No one baby but the brave

Now tonight once more
I search every face on that crowded floor
Looking for, I don't know what for
Just waitin' to see you come walkin' through that door
There's a girl standing by the band
She reminds me of you and I ask her to dance
As the drummer counts away
I take her hand, we move away

Tonight, now I see old friends
Caught in a game they've got no chance to win
Gettin' beat and then playin' again
'Til their strength gives out or their heart gives in

Now who's the man who thinks he can decide
Whose dreams will live and who's shall be pushed aside
Has he ever walked down these streets at night and looked into the eyes of

None but the brave
No one baby but the brave
Those strong enough to save
Something from the love they gave

None but the brave
No one baby but the brave

    General CommentI think this one's about young aspiring bands who leave their lives (friends, significant others, etc) behind in search of that lucky break. Sounds like a lonely process that would be too much for a lot of bands... but thank God the E-Streeters stuck with it and got their break.

    General Commentthe "brave" are those who continue to live and go on with life, even after their dreams have disappeared or been broken or they have failed in reaching their
    goals
