In the fading light, she stumbles and falls
Too tired to cry, too proud to call
In a movie scene, played over again
Might as well just pretend

Dream of America
At least anywhere but here
Singing your freedom song
When there's no-one to hear
You're leaving some day
And you'll put on your black beret

Strangers pass you by, alone in your room
Don't need no-one, you're leaving soon
Turning out the light, case in the hall
Waiting for you to make the call
Just look to the west-side
With a whispered prayer, the saints don't reply
Might as well close your eyes

Dream of America
At least anywhere but here
Singing your freedom song
When there's no-one to hear
You're leaving some day
And you'll put on your black beret

Dream of America
At least anywhere but here
Singing your freedom song
When there's no-one to hear
You're leaving some day
And you'll laugh at the words they say...

Slipping away...
And do you feel better now?
Do you feel better now?
You're leaving someday soon...
