Looking For America

Recommended Posts

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

It's just a dream I had in mind

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.

 

 

Also I think it’s “our friends said we would jive”

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


There's things I wanna say to you, but I'll just let you live

These two lyrics are so heart-wrenching.
