Sam's Town (Abbey Road Version)[Live]

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 seems '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

So why do you waste my time?
Is the answer, to the question on my 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 people of the pen pulled the 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 ways
I'd never really known anybody had died 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 my 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

Every now and then
Every now and then

You know
I see London
I see Sam's Town
Hold my hand and
Let my hair down
Rolls that world right
Off my shoulders
I see London
I see Sam's Town now
