why can’t everything be as real as You are to me
why doesn’t everyone say just what they mean
why must we hide behind smiles we strain to find
why can’t everything be exactly as it’s meant to be

the American dream
so fleeting, no meaning
but I’ve got a reason
the American dream
so fleeting, no meaning
but I’ve got a reason to live

walking down the street, they’re filling the coffee shops
sipping their usual cup, society’s pick-me-up
faces all the same, i nod at what’s her name
it’s just another day, they’re all the same

the American dream
so fleeting, no meaning
but I’ve got a reason
the American dream
so fleeting, no meaning
but I’ve got a reason to live

I’ve got reason to live

the American dream
so fleeting, no meaning
but I’ve got a reason
the American dream
so fleeting, no meaning
but I’ve got a reason to live
