U2 – American Soul (Lyric Video)


It’s not a place
[?] dreams get me sleepin’
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American soul
You close your eyes to look around
Will you be our sanctuary
[Verse 2: Bono]
Let it be unity, let it be community
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American soul
You and I are rock and roll
There’s a moment in our life where a soul can die
Came here looking for American soul
[Verse 1: Bono]
For one day they will have to stand up to themselves
[Refrain]
For every welcome that is sought

[Chorus: Bono]
You are rock and roll
That offers grace
For refugees like you and me
This country is to me a sound
You are rock and roll
The end of a dream, the start of what’s real
You are rock and roll
It had your heart to call her home

It’s not a place
Blessed are the liars

Could be too late, but we still gotta try
American soul, American soul
You and I are rock and roll
This country is to me a thought
It’s not a place

Look around, look around
There’s a promise in the heart of every good dream
It’s a call to action, not to fantasy
[?]
Came here looking for American soul
[Chorus: Bono]
Of drum and bass

Refu-Jesus
Dream on [?]
[Bridge 2: Bono]
[Chorus: Bono]
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
Put your hands in the air
And the person in a country when you believe the lie
For the truth can be awkward
Blessed are the bullies
You are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
A country to receive us
Look around, it’s a sound

It’s a sound

[Verse 3: Bono]
This is a dream the whole world owns
The lie (the lie, the lie)
[Intro: Kendrick Lamar]
The pilgrim’s face
American, American
[Bridge 1: Bono]
Hold on the sky
Look around, look around
You and I are rock and roll
