Dancing in the Dark (Bruce Springsteen cover)

Is “Dancing in the Dark” about trying to get with a girl? Obviously it is. The lyrics are pretty clear. But I hear what I want to hear with songs, I guess. I didn’t really put that part together until I covered the song and actually thought about it.

Until then, I just kind of fixated on the title, being “sick of sitting ‘round here trying to write this book” and “there’s something happening somewhere, baby I just know there is.” I always just thought it was a song about feeling stalled and restless in general, which speaks to me. I guess the love thing’s pretty universal, too.
