America is an English-American folk rock band, that originally consisted of Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek. The three members were barely out of their teens, when they became a musical sensation during 1972, scoring No. 1 hits and winning a Grammy for best new musical artist. Their recording success stretched throughout the 1970s; some of the band's best known songs are "A Horse with No Name", "Sister Golden Hair" (both of which reached No. 1), "Ventura Highway", "Tin Man", "Daisy Jane", and "Lonely People". George Martin produced seven of their albums. more »

When the deep blue night is running close on your track 
And you can feel the green monkey crawlin' across your back 
Don't take me so real that you forget how to feel 
Don't let the threat of the dagger turn your heart into steel 

Smell the perfume of the silent dream 
Fly the ocean, read a story to me 
Speak the wisdom of a redwood tree 
Speak to me 

So you think that star cluster shining bright in the sky 
Will speak the fate of your evening, tell the truth to your lie 
Don't let the features you read control the tickets you buy 
Soon as you learn that you live, you're just beginning to die 

[Chorus: x2]
