This is the life that I wanted to live
So many things that I wanted to give
And I’d give them all back for you
This is the sound of my dreams coming true
Now I’m one step further from you
But I’d walk right back for you
I’m bathed in shining lights,
Famous friends and crazy nights

This is American fame
All of the praise and the blame
All of the crowds and the press
All I feel is loneliness
This is American bliss
All it took was a kiss
All I gave was my heart
And it’s tearing my world apart
It’s tearing my world apart

Suddenly life is moving so fast
I hope my fifteen minutes will last
But I’d turn the clock right back for you
Sometimes I find myself saying your name
But when I see you it won’t be the same
Still I’d walk right back for you
I’m bathed in shining lights
Famous friends and crazy nights

This is American fame
All of the praise and the blame
All of the crowds and the press
All I feel is loneliness
This is American bliss
All it took was a kiss
All I gave was my heart
And it’s tearing my world apart
And it’s tearing my world apart

It’s tearing my world apart, ooh yeah
Oh, my world apart

American Fame Lyrics

Tim Halperin – American Fame Lyrics

This is the life that I wanted to live
So many things that I wanted to give
And I’d give them all back for you
This is the sound of my dreams coming true
Now I’m one step further from you
But I’d walk right back for you
I’m bathed in shining lights,
Famous friends and crazy nights

This is American fame
All of the praise and the blame
All of the crowds and the press
All I feel is loneliness
This is American bliss
All it took was a kiss
All I gave was my heart
And it’s tearing my world apart
It’s tearing my world apart

Suddenly life is moving so fast
I hope my fifteen minutes will last
But I’d turn the clock right back for you
Sometimes I find myself saying your name
But when I see you it won’t be the same
Still I’d walk right back for you
I’m bathed in shining lights
Famous friends and crazy nights

This is American fame
All of the praise and the blame
All of the crowds and the press
All I feel is loneliness
This is American bliss
All it took was a kiss
All I gave was my heart
And it’s tearing my world apart
And it’s tearing my world apart

It’s tearing my world apart, ooh yeah
Oh, my world apart
