American English


Songs when they're true, are all dedicated to you
In this invisible world I choose to live in
And if you believe that for now I understand
Why words mean so much to you
They'll never be about you

Verse 2
 Maybe you're young without youth
Maybe you're old without, knowing anything's true
I think you're young without youth....

Pre Chorus - drums begin, riff stops.

Then you contract the American dream
You never look up once
You've contracted American dreams
Em D (slide up to G)
I require you to stop and look up.


 Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world     

Verse 3 - same chords as above

Constantly searching to find something new
But what will you find when you think that nothing's true?
Maybe it's that nothing is new

Verse 4

So you let me hear songs that were written all about you
Because songs weren't written for you
They'll never be about you

(Pre Chorus)

(Chorus x 2)

Middle Part

 And I won't tell you what this means, cause you already know
And I won't tell you what this means, cause you already know...

Sooo, Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world

 You came along and found the weak spot - that you've always wanted
 Let yourself be everything that you've always wanted
(While this is sung - the chorus is sung)
 It doesn't have to be so silent - that you've always wanted
 No need for explanations - that you've always wanted


You'll find, what you find when you find there's nothing (x 2)

End on a G

C D Em G
