Scott Helman Lyrics – Afraid of America

Why?
Where your next door neighbour wants to be James Dean
Without the hard work and the bloody scene?
Open up the curtains and look at the roadwork
My friends are conforming but they’ve got a savings account
Everyone feels they’re destined for love
But destiny’s weird if it taught you to punch
If a bird could be jealous they would probably wanna run
Cause they’d forget what it’s like to fly

But I’ve got what I need
With you next to me
So why would we leave?

You say it’s not far away
Why you wanna play it safe?
We could wake up
Where dreams are made of
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America
Airforce ones and Chevrolets
Anytime you want it, babe
We could wake up
Where dreams are made of
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America yeah
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America

Adaptability, accountability
Accessibility, thinking politically
Kids on a livestream with tears in their eyes
Soho house and a beach side drive
Waterless cities (Wine on ice)
Fifty million dollars on a football game
Football fame, football fans
Don’t know If I wanna be a football man

Cause I’ve got what I need
With you next to me
So why would we leave?
(What I do know, is I love you)

You say it’s not far away
Why you wanna play it safe?
We could wake up
Where dreams are made of
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America
Airforce ones and Chevrolets
Anytime you want it, babe
We could wake up
Where dreams are made of
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America yeah
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America

Jesus loves you yes he does
I was born right in the sun
On a backroad in Boston
Gold in my hair and a streak on my cheek
I know we can make it, babe
Come here and say my name
On a backroad in Wisconsin
Gold in your hair we can make it in America

You say it’s not far away
Why you wanna play it safe?
We could wake up
Where dreams are made of
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America
Airforce ones and Chevrolets
Anytime you want it, babe
We could wake up
Where dreams are made of
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America yeah
I’m not scared of your love
I’m afraid of America
