Took a trip to San Francisco, our friends said we would jive

Didn't work so I left for Fresno, it was quite a scenic drive

Pulled over to watch the children in the park

Used to only worry about them after dark

 

I'm still looking for my own version of America

One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly

No bombs in the sky, only fireworks when you and I collide

It's just a dream I had in mind

It's just a dream I had in mind

It's just a dream I had in mind

 

Took a flight to New York City, I missed that Hudson river line

Took the train back to Lake Placid, that's another space in time

We used to go in drive-ins and listen to the blues

So many things that I think twice about before I do

Oh to watch the children in the park
Used to only wait back then after dark

Oh better watch the children in the park
Used to only worry bout them after dark.

i know i've mentioned this already but i really hope this is a nod to simon and garfunkel's song america. also its relationship to the film almost famous, for me it's such a perfect continuation. it's like she's taken the idealistic idea of looking for america and applied it to the present

These lyrics are gorgeous and her mentioning Lake Placid make me shed a tiny tear. The bombs and fireworks lyric is also incredible. Beautiful

These two lyrics are so heart-wrenching.

This is really beautiful, just as I meantioned on Norman Fucking Rockwell thread, it would be really nice if she release as a charity single and all the funds going for institutions agaisn't guns\helping the families from these tragedies.
