"Prove It All Night" as written by and Bruce Springsteen....
I've been working real hard, trying to get my hands clean
We'll drive that dusty road from Monroe to Angeline
To buy you a gold ring and pretty dress of blue
Baby just one kiss will get these things for you
A kiss to seal our fate tonight

A kiss to prove it all night
Prove it all night
Girl there's nothing else that we can do
So prove it all night
Prove it all night
And girl I'll prove it all night for you

Everybody's got a hunger, a hunger they can't resist
There's so much that you want, you deserve much more than this
But if dreams came true, oh, wouldn't that be nice
But this ain't no dream we're living through tonight
Girl, you want it, you take it, you pay the price

Prove it all night
Prove it all night
Prove it all night girl and call the bluff
We'll prove it all night
Prove it all night
Girl I'll prove it all night for your love

Baby, tie your hair back in a long white bow
Meet me in the fields out behind the dynamo
You hear their voices telling you not to go
They've made their choices and they'll never know
What it means to steal, to cheat, to lie
What it's like to live and die

Prove it all night
Prove it all night
Girl there's nothing else that we can do
So prove it all night
Prove it all night
And girl I'll prove it all night for you

I'll prove it all night
I'll prove it all night
I'll prove it all night
I'll prove it all night
I'll prove it all night
I'll prove it all night
I'll prove it all night
I'll prove it all night

    Song MeaningI look at this one even differently than both dasquien and Rolling_Beatle.

    It's a song about a guy and a girl who look at each other and say, 'there's no one better, let's get married' ("Buy you a gold ring"). Neither is a virgin nor particularly innocent ("and a [wedding] dress of blue).

    All it'll take for him to act on the notion is her agreement ("Just one kiss will get these things for you")

    There's no one better ("there's nothing else we can do"), and he's saying, 'forget your go-nowhere/do-nothing friends, take the chance with me, and I'll show you it was the right choice' by making love all night - proving it all night. That's in these lines: "You hear the voices telling you not to go,
    They made their choices and they'll never know,
    What it means to steal, to cheat, to lie,
    What it's like to live and die."

    General CommentThis is a great song.

    I think it's about a boy who is passionate about breaking away from a cautious and mundane existence who is working hard to make a better life for himself. At the same time he wants his girl to take the risk of believing in him even though what he's doing goes against what everyone else is doing.

    ... and if she takes the leap of faith and believes in a better future with him, he will work hard to prove that her faith in him was worth it.

    Beautiful romantic song about chasing dreams and having a better life - no-one does this better than The Boss - just awesome!!
