American Dream - Silverstein

It was on our wedding day
When my heart began to stray
Never thought I'd make
Such a big mistake
Throw my life away

I've gone days without food
I've went weeks without sleep
Keeping this in
I've got cuts that cant close
I've got wounds that wont heal
It's all your fault

I've been shattered and wrecked
My hands covered in blood
Scars on my skin
I forgot how to feel now im weak with deceit
My skin is paper thin
We get through this feelin' it, keepin' it, holdin' it in
We go through this over and over again

I'd go years without tears in a life with no fear
A life without you
Now im breaking my back as i cover my tracks
My skin is paper thin
Once again

We get through this feelin' it, keepin' it, holdin' it in
We go through this over and over again
I've gone days without food
I've went weeks without sleep
Keeping this in
I've got cuts i cant close
I've got wounds that wont heal
It's all your fault

My American dream wasn't ever to lie, steal or cheat
He wont leave her for this
What's the point?
I wish they would die

We get through this feelin' it, keepin' it, holdin' it in
We go through this over and over again
Over again

We get through this feelin' it, keepin' it, holdin' it in
We go through this over and over again
Over and over again

This was not a test
This was all for real

This was not a test
This was all for real

This was not a test
This was all for real

This was not a test
This was all for real
