Springsteen Lyrics Of The Week- "Local Hero"

"I was driving through my hometown, I was just kinda killing time."

On Monday I went home to see my parents, and on the bus ride to New Jersey I couldn't believe just how much the area I had grown up in had changed.  I guess it's to be expected, but as I moved on with my life so has everyone else. It sounds downright silly to think otherwise, but I guess I couldn't help but feel nostalgic, wishing certain privately owned stores and parts of town were still there instead of retail chains and McMansions.  I'm not sure what exactly Bruce is singing about in this song, but I definitely was pumping this song in my iPod as I drove around.
