American Dream  Casting Crowns

[D]All work no play[Bm] may have made Jack a dull [D]boy
But all work no [Bm]God has left Jack with a lost [D]soul
But he's moving[D] on full steam
[Bm]He's chasing the American dream[D]
And he's gonna give his family[Bm] finer things
verse 1
[D]Not this time [Bm]son I've no time to waste[D]
Maybe Tomo[Bm]rrow we'll have time to play [D]
And then he slips into [Bm]his new BMW[D]
And drives farther and far[Bm]ther and farther away[E]
Pre-chorus 1
[E]'Cause he works all d[G]ay and tries to sleep at ni[D]ght
[E]He says things will get better[G]; better in time[D]
[D]'Cause he works and[Gm] he builds with his o[Bm]wn two hands
[D]And he pours [Gm]all he has in a c[Bm]astle made with sand
[D]But the wind a[Gm]nd the rain are[Bm] comin' crashing in
[D]Time will tell[Gm] just how long his kingdom s[D]tands[D] [Bm] [Gm]
His kingdom sta[D]nd[Bm]s[Gm]
Verse 2
[D]His American dream i[Bm]s begining to seem
[D]More and More like a nightmare[Bm]
with every passing day[D]
"Daddy, can you come to my game?"[Bm]
"Oh Baby, please don't work late."[D]
Another wasted weekend[Bm]
And they are slipping away[E]
Pre-Chorus 2
[E]'Cause he works all da[G]y and lies awake at night [D]
[E]He tells them things will get[G] better
It'll just take a little more time[D]
Verse 3
[D]He used to say, "Who ever died [Bm]with the most toys wins."
[D]But if he loses his soul, [Bm]what has he gained in the end
[D]I'll take a shack on a rock
[Bm]Over a castle in the sand[E]
Pre-chorus 3
[E]Now he works all day a[G]nd cries alone at night [D]
[E]It's not getting any better [G]
Looks like he's running out of time
[D]All they really wanted was you
[D]All they really wanted was you
[D]All they really wanted was you
