American Dream (MKTO)

(Do something with your life) Ooh. (With your life) We broke down trying to leave town Flying down the road to change We were born to run, Cali here we come Escape from nowhere USA Say goodbye to white picket fences Say hello to palm trees and Benzes They say you gotta fall to have it all Yeah We don’t want two kids and a wife I don’t want a job, I just want a life Sometimes the underdogs rise and the mighty fall This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know ‘Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago The world is spinning too fast for you and me So tell me whatever happened to the American Dream I know a girl I met her last night She was fresh off the plane She whispered in my ear, “Baby, come here. I’ll do anything to make a name.” Honey, take my hand follow me ‘cause I don’t wanna hurt you but he does I just wanna give you some real advice (Listen baby, mmm) Never take candy from a stranger And keep your eyes open for danger ‘Cause this right here is the twisted paradise This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know ‘Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago The world is spinning too fast for you and me So tell me whatever happened to the American Dream This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know So baby, let's live and die before we're getting old You know that nothing is the way it used to be So tell me whatever happened to the American Dream Na na na... We were born to run, Cali here we come Gettin' out of here, baby Let's get out of here This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know ‘Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago The world is spinning too fast for you and me So tell me whatever happened to the American Dream This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know So baby, let’s live and die before we’re getting old You know that nothing is the way it used to be So tell me whatever happened to the American Dream Na na na.
