lyrics

POSTCARD FROM AMERICA

I got a postcard from America
You know she’s having a real
Hard time And all the things
She’s been working on she’s
Got to leave them all behind

Standing on the road
To freedom, everyone is
Looking out you take a
Beating without reason
And you just want to shout
All the news and endless lying
You never wanna lose
Your soul you hang on and
You don’t stop trying
Oh no no oh no

Cause I’m never gonna never
Gonna Never gonna let you
Down No I’m never gonna
Never gonna Never gonna
Let you down Oh no never
Gonna let you down, Oh no
Never gonna let you down.

Oh that’s not my America
At least that’s not what
I recall you know my heart
Belongs to America
I’d hate to ever see her fall

Chorus

Here I am I will meet you like
The morning sun
Take my hand I will help you
Till the work is done
I can see darkness falling
On your amber waves
Trust in me won’t you trust me
When you hear me say

Chorus

Well I’m looking for my soul
and I can’t go back
Well I’m looking everywhere
In a night so black
Yeah I’m looking everywhere
but I lost it along the way

Maybe I lost it in a busy life
I was too distracted
To see what’s right
Maybe I lost it
Somewhere along the way
