American Dreaming Lyrics

Artist: Dead Can Dance
Album: Toward the Within

I need my conscience to keep watch over me
To protect me from myself
So I can wear honesty like a crown on my head
When I walk into the promised land

We've been too long American dreaming
And I think we've all lost the way
Like some somnambulistic maniacal in the dark

I'm in love with an American girl
Well she's my best friend
I love her surreptitious smile
That hides the pain within her
And we'll go dancing beside desert waters
Where love is so wastefully spent
& dine upon the crumbs of faith
most lovers often reject.
spare a thought for the unfortunate man
who must choose between love and desire

We've been too long American dreaming
I think we've all lost the way
Like some somnambulistic maniacal in the dark.
