BETTER THAN EZRA


American Dream Lyrics

She was a Midwestern prom queen
Got her boyfriend headed out west
They ended up in the valley
In a one room apartment, a disconnected phone, yeah

Now five years later she's single
She's got two kids and a note
And if she gets a moment to herself
She can remember how everything used to go her way
She says

Where did the time go
When everything was simple and free?
I want to know what happened
Somebody woke me before I could have my American dream
Yeah, yeah, yeah

For twenty years he worked corporate
He planned to early retire
His CEO, he stole a billion dollars
Now he's working at Denny's hoping for a raise
He thinks

Where did the time go
When everything was simple and free?
I want to know what happened
Somebody woke me before I could have my American dream
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm a little bit rebel, I'm a bit patriot
I can see they're both sides of the coin
But still it gets a bit rough an' everything is screwed up
Guess it'­s just the American way

Sometimes I wonder how you are
You're up in New York City with a family
I think I could have been your guy
It's just a moment in time that is slipping on away

Where did the time go
When everything was simple and free?
I want to know what happened
Somebody woke me before I could have my American dream

Where did the time go?
(My American dream)
Where did the time go?
(My American dream)

Where did the time go?
(My American dream)
Where did the time go?
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

She was a Midwestern prom queen
Got her boyfriend headed out west
