Wrecking ball lyrics: You’ve got it

You’ve got it certainly sounds a little out of place on the album at first. But of course, if your mind is open, it grows on you. I am at the moment listening to Tracks, and I think it would have fitted perfectly there. A nice song, nothing wrong with it, but not with the same power as the previous songs on Wrecking Ball. And maybe that is the reason for its inclusion, just to break the tension.
As a writer of romantic novels, I assume the it to be that elusive something that attracts a person to another, that something that you cannot really explain. The quality that makes you fall in love with this person and not the other, although the latter might be a much better proposition and even a better person.

As usual, thanks to Blogness on the edge of town for the picture and the three-sentence review, as well as to www.springsteenlyrics.com for the lyrics.

Favourite lines:
Can’t tell you what they made it of, but I know it when I taste it
and
You’ve got it in your bones and blood, yeah, you’re real as real ever was

No one ever found it, ain’t no school ever taught it
No one ever made it, ain’t no one ever bought it
Baby you’ve got it, baby you’ve got it
Come on and give it to me

Ain’t no one can break it, there ain’t no one can steal it
Ain’t no one can fake it, you just know it when you feel it
Baby you’ve got it, baby you’ve got it
Come on and give it to me

Yeah, you can’t read it in a book, and you can’t even dream it
Honey, it ain’t got a name, you just know it when you see it
Baby you’ve got it, yeah, baby you’ve got it
Come on and give it to me

Well, now listen up, your reckless love is precious so don’t waste it
Can’t tell you what they made it of, but I know it when I taste it
Baby you’ve got it, yeah, baby you’ve got it
You’ve got it in your bones and blood, yeah, you’re real as real ever was
Baby you’ve got it, yeah, baby you’ve got it
Come on and give it to me
