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 the money I make
All these chances I've taken
Just paying my rent in America
Won't just stand around, watch it go down
Won't just stand around, and watch it go down

Oh, maybe it's a long shot
maybe it's a fantasy
But given all that we've got
maybe we could live the 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 breathe in America
Watch them squeezing my neck
Watch them bullets connect
We still gonna fight in America
Won't just stand around, watch it go down
Won't just stand around, and watch it go down

Oh, maybe it's a long shot
maybe it's a fantasy
But given all that we've got
maybe we could live the 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… (x8)

In America, in America
My hope's right here in America
In America, in America
My hope, my prayer in America
