Lyrics English

There was a little red book with a beaten up cover
The history of America's dreams
And with a candle light he'd read it every night
Until he was sure what it means
They said "darlin' you don't know how hard I tried"
Oh I will be an astronaut and I'll get there if I die
Because this is America
This is America
Where dreams come true
Oh this is America
This is America
And I'm a dreamer too
It was the 1960s he was a child
His father took him over the shore
And they both had planned on being rocket men
But his father got shot in the war
He said "father, I know it slow, so now i'm a family man."
But when I touch my feet on the moon
I know you'll understand
Because this is America
This is America
Where dreams come true
Oh this is America
This is America
And I'm a dreamer too
He's working 9 to 5, but he's still got a vision
He thinks about it all the time praying god'll listen
He's a minimum wage
He says "at least i'm paid"
I say "there isn't much to live for livin' this way" 'cause
He got told
There was soul in America
He got there and felt the cold in America
And now he's on a mission
To release the inner vision fly to the moon and get praised on the television
In America
Only in America
Where dreams come true
Oh this is America
This is America
And I'm a dreamer too
Oh darlin' you don't know how hard I tried
Oh I will be an astronaut and I'll get there if I die
Because this is America
This is America
Where dreams are true
Oh this is America
This is America
And I'm a dreamer too
Oh the rain is falling
Space is calling
Don't see it as no time left
'Cause I wont resign these dreams of mine
While it's there left in my chest
Because this is America
This is America
Where dreams come true
Oh this is America
This is America
I'm a dreamer too
