Indigo Girls — American Tune lyrics

Manys a time I've been mistaken
And many times confused
Yes and I've often felt forsaken
And certainly misused
Oh but I'm all right
I'm all right
I'm just weary to my bones
Still you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant
So far away from home
So far away from home

I don't know a soul whos not been battered
I don't have a friend feels who at ease
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered
Or driven to its knees
Oh but its all right
Its all right
Weve lived so well so long
Still when I think of the road were traveling on
I wonder whats gone wrong
I can't help it I wonder
Whats gone wrong

And I dreamed I was dying
I dreamed that my soul
Rose unexpectedly
And looking back down at me
Smiled reassuringly
And I dreamed I was flying
High up above
My eyes could clearly see
The statue of liberty
Sailing away to sea
And I dreamed I was dying

Oh we come on a ship they call the mayflower
We come on a ship that sailed the moon
We come in the ages most uncertain hour
And sing an american tune
Oh but its all right
Its all right
You can't be forever blessed
Still tomorrows going to be another working day
And I'm trying to get some rest
That's all I'm trying
To get some rest
