Mojave Rain

Sam's Town

Nobody ever had a dream 'round here
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me
Nobody ever pulls the seams 'round here
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me

I've got this energy beneath my feet
Like something underground's gonna come up and carry me
I've got this sentimental heart that beats
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me now

Why do you waste my time?
Is the answer to the question on your mind
And I'm sick of all my judges
So scared of what they'll find
But I know that I can make it
As long as somebody takes me home
Every now and then

Well, have you ever seen the lights?
Have you ever seen the lights?

I took a shuttle on a shock-wave ride
Where the people on the pen pull trigger for accolades
I took a bullet, and I looked inside and
Running through my veins
An American masquerade

I still remember Grandma Dixie's way
I'd never really known anybody to die before
Red white and blue upon a birthday cake
My brother, he was born on the fourth of July
And that's all

So why do you waste my time?
Is the answer, to the question on your mind
And I'm sick of all my judges
So scared of letting me shine
But I know that I can make it
As long as somebody takes me home!
Woo!

Every now and then
Every now and then...

You know, I see London, I see Sam's Town
Holds my hand and let's my hair down
Rolls that world right, off my shoulder
I see London, I see Sam's Town
Now!
