Song of the Week: Trapped

I saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at the American Airlines Center in Dallas the other night.  Fantastic show with many great performances.  One of the highlights for me was the song "Trapped."  I dedicate it here to the many doubters, skeptics, nonbelievers, and disaffected Mormons who feel trapped in the LDS church because of social or family pressure to maintain a facade of testimony.

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
Then I know someday I'll find the key
Then I know somewhere I'll find the key
Well it seem 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 a loser
And I know that I'll walk out of here again
And I know that someday I'll walk out of here again

But now I'm trapped...Oh yeah!
Trapped...Oh yeah yeah!
Trapped...Oh yeah!
Trapped...Oh yeah!

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

(Chorus)

Well it seem like I've been playin' the game way too long
And it seems the game I played has made you strong

Because I'm trapped...Oh yeah!
Trapped...Oh yeah yeah!
Trapped...Oh yeah yeah!
Trapped...Oh yeah!

I'm trapped...Oh yeah yeah!
Trapped...Oh yeah yeah
Trapped...Oh yeahhhhhh
Trapped....oh yeahhhh
I'm trapped.

Leave it to The Boss to put into words how I feel....he is one of my favorites.

INTJ Mom

A neighbor was expressing these same sentiments to my husband recently. He converted his wife to Mormonism when they were dating and now she's totally gung ho into it. The guy indicated that he wasn't so into it anymore but he's stuck because of his wife, so he tries not to think about it. He's one of the fellows that's mentioned to DH that he thinks DH is lucky I'm not into religion.

You've not blogged for almost two months. We want to know how you're doing. Hope "all is swell!"

I too have become concerned. Sometimes the church can be vindictive. Hope that is not the case and all is going well with you.
