An American Dream

This song is by Love and Rockets and appears on the album Express (1986).

This song has been covered by Film School under the title "An American Dream".
And I was dreaming in my sleep
Saw through you all
And I was dreaming still on my feet
Saw through you all

And I saw what you could be
And you just don't feel free
And I saw what you could be
But you just won't be real to me

So let's blame this excess
On an American dream
So let's blame the success
Of an American dream

Are you confused by the chaos
In everyone's wandering eyes?
Do you dream of running naked
In warm rain?

Are you confused by the chaos
It's no, it's no surprise?
We all stand next to Jesus
Close to Satan we're both the same

These birds can't fly away, away
These birds can't fly away, away

So let's blame this excess
On an American dream
So let's blame the success
Of an American dream

Of an American dream
Of an American dream
Of an American dream

Feeling so high and low
It's the American dream
It's the American dream
It's the American dream
It's the American dream

America
America
America
America
America
