Everyday America - Sugarland

Grew up on a title
Learned to small even when I was fallin down
Daddy had a hard and and mama always had hope
And me and my sister couldnt wait to get out
Fell in love out of high hope
Good man for the bad year
Visions of sugarplums and boxes of roses
All my girlfriends cried and I was outta here

[chorus:]
Whoa, whoa everybody's dreamin big
Whoa, whoa everybody's just gettin by
That's how it goes in every day america
A little town with a great big light

Joey stares at a trophy
Took us all away to stay back in '85
Shining home and a dusty reminder
He felt so scared never felt so alive
We found his toys in the backyard
Daddy's boys, you know how they like to fight
When they sleep, he swears they're angels
He wouldnt trade a day for those friday nights

[chorus:]
Whoa, whoa everybody's dreamin big
Whoa, whoa everybody's just gettin by
That's how it goes in every day america
A little town with a great big light

We can laugh
We can cry
We're all just lookin for the reasons why
In a place of dark can we see the light
Either way it'll be alright

[chorus 2x:]
Whoa, whoa everybody's dreamin big
Whoa, whoa everybody's just gettin by
That's how it goes in every day america
A little town with a great big light

A little town with a great big light
