John Legend - In America Lyrics




In America, in America
I poured my sweat in America
This land is my land
It's America
I broke my back for America
All of money I make
All of these chances I take
Just paying my rent in America
Won't just stand around
Watch it go down
Won't just stand around
Watch it go down

But maybe it's a long shot
Maybe it's a fantasy
We've given it all that we've got
Maybe we can live a dream
Oh, oh
Can we build a new life was it ever meant that we...
Could make it in America
Make it in America

In America, in America
They say I'm free in America
In America, in America
I still can't breath in America
Watch them squeezing my neck
Watch them bullets connect
We still gon' fight in America
Won't just stand around
Can't watch it go down
Won't just stand around
Watch it go down

But maybe it's a long shot
Maybe it's a fantasy
We've given it all that we've got
Maybe we can live a dream
Oh, oh
Can we build a new life was it ever meant that we...
Could make it in America
Make it in America

We'll make it in America
We'll make it in America
We'll make it in America
We'll make it in America
We'll make it in America
We'll make it in America
We'll make it in America
We'll make it in America

In America, in America
My hopes right here in America
In America, in America
My hope, my prayer in America

    Underground!!! I remember when I first heard this song in the previews , I couldn't hear the lyrics because I was too busy trying to see what was going to happen in season 2. When I finally listened to what he was saying, I could not stop the tears. I literally cry every time I hear this song. It is so true & people will NEVER understand how we feel until they're in our shoes. Such a fantastic song for a fantastic show. I hope we're able to make it to season 3.
