Ray Wilson - American Beauty

 

Tekst oryginalny

Lay down your life they said
Let me inside your soul
Always remember this
It's for the sake of us all

American Beauty, tell me what's going to become of me
What have you done to my head?
It feels like you're living inside of me
American Beauty, living a lie, I shouldn't be
I want to believe it instead
And never erase the memory

If I can't see, why not?
Have I been blinded by trust?
Or are you testing me, I feel this desperately
'Cause I seem to pray a lot
Am I lost in my fear
'Cause the more that I look, the less I believe
In something I don't want to see

American Beauty, tell me what's going become of me
What have you done to my head?
It feels like you're living inside of me
American Beauty, living a lie, I shouldn't be
I want to believe it instead
And never erase the memory

Do I believe in myself, or just don't know me
I've got the world at my feet and a family
The only fight I have's with people I don't know
And the truth is, I don't like where I'm going

American Beauty, tell me what's going become of me
What have you done to my head?
It feels like you're living inside of me
American Beauty, living a lie, I shouldn't be
I want to believe it instead
And never erase the memory
But what have you done to my head
I feel like you're living inside of me
I want to believe it instead
And never erase the memory
