Sam's Town
by The Killers



Nobody ever has 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 your mind
And I'm sick of all my judges
Their so scared of what they'll find.
But I know that I can make it it
As long as somebody takes me home
Every now and then

Oh, have you ever seen the light?
Have you ever seen the light?

I took a shuttle on a shock wave ride
Where people on the ground pull the trigger for acolades
I took a bullet and I looked inside
And running through my veins an american mascarade

I still remember grandma Dixie's wake
I'd never really known anybody that died before
Red white and blue on a birthday cake
My brother he was born on the 4th of July
And that's all

So why do you waste my time, is the answer to the question on your mind
And I'm so sick of all my judges,
Their so scared to let 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
Holds my hand and lets my hair down
Rolls that world right off my shoulders
You know I see London, I see Sam's Town now
