American Hi-fi — Something Real lyrics

Starin' down the boulevard
Crescent Heights; the city lights the way
To another wasted day
Shiny cars and shooting stars
California dreamin' in my ear
I just wish that you were here
I'm dealin' with scars
Just tryin' to see who we are

Nobody said it would be easy
Fighting your way through another day
I think I know how you feel
Lookin' for somethin' that matters
Keepin' it together when it's all been shattered
We all want somethin' real

Summer's on a holiday
Pills to chase the blues away
Who knows just how far this story goes
So listen to the radio
Turn it up so you can sing along
Even though the notes are wrong
I'm buildin' up walls
And tryin' to break all the falls

Nobody said it would be easy
Fighting your way through another day
I think I know how you feel
Lookin' for somethin' that matters
Keepin' it together when it's all been shattered
We all want somethin' real

All your life you're wonderin'
We don't know what's happenin'
Somethin's gotta give
Fallin' through the atmosphere
See the world in black and white
These pictures comin' clear
How many times I wished that you were here

Nobody said it would be easy
Fighting your way through another day
I think I know how you feel
Lookin' for somethin' that matters
Keepin' it together when it's all been shattered
We all want somethin' real
(2x)

We all want somethin' real
We all want somethin' real
