"Johnny America" as written by and John Ondrasik....
Show me a better bike than the one I got
If it makes any difference you can keep the lot
There's plenty of space in the parking lot

A head full of hopes
A pocket full of dreams
Handle bars coming apart at the seams

There goes Johnny America
Riding hard up Mission Hill
Some think he'll make it to the top today
Some say he never will
Though he's just a child at heart
He's old enough to fall
Nobody in 100 years
Can touch him faults and all

What you going to say about my little man
Take another shot, do the best you can
They're selling out souls in the grandstand

His cap peeled back
Got blood on his knees
Fighting back tears
Tearing through the breeze

There goes Johnny America
Riding hard up Mission Hill
Some think he'll make it to the top today
Some say he never will
Though he's just a child at heart
He's old enough to fall
Nobody in 100 years
Can touch him faults and all

He's come to far to fall

There goes Johnny America
Riding hard up Mission Hill
Some think he'll make it to the top today
Some say he never will

GO!
Go Johnny!
Go Johnny!

There goes Johnny America
Riding hard up Mission Hill
Some think he'll make it to the top today
I say he will.

    General CommentCouldn't agree more careysent - it's one of my favs too.. I love that bit at the end where the scale keeps going up and up - and he says 'go johnny go..' it gives me goosebumps!

    General CommentI can't believe no ones commented this. Everyone of FFF's albums has one song that's just upbeat and makes you wanna smile. In the battle for everything i think its disneyworld. In Two lights its johnny america. Its just a great song about when no one believes there's always someone cheering you on believeing in everything.

    General Commenti agree with careysent too but i also think that its talking more about america. hes using metaphores to describe america. hes saying that even with all of all faults, like the different views on the war, we are still the greatest country in the world "faults and all"
