here in america lyrics

Because it's not safe in the towns. Somewhere Hey girl, help me if you can I'm coming to you with my heart in my hand Give me love, I'm starved for affection All I need is just a little direction Somewhere in America Somewhere cross the sea Somewhere in America She waits for me I need a teacher who can use a pet Give me a lesson in etiquette If there is anyone who'd like to try Maybe she'd like to come And teach me tonight Somewhere in America Somewhere cross the sea Somewhere in America She waits for me She waits for me Same old story, same old song and dance What good is the glory, can't find romance I know she is waiting Ooh, somewhere in the heartland And if she's out there tonight I wish she would raise her hand Hey girl, help me if you can I'm coming to you with my heart in my hand Give me love, I'm starved for affection All I need is just a little direction Somewhere in America Somewhere baby Somewhere cross the sea Somewhere in America, America She waits for me She waits for me Somewhere in America Somewhere in America Somewhere in America. I'm not talkin' religion, I'm talkin' 'bout Jesus, Put all your plans on the shelf, Let's stop marching for peace, and start marching for Jesus And peace will take care of itself. My InterpretationTo me, Kathy is not with Paul in this song. If you have no idea who Kathy is I Googled her because she features rather prominently in Simon's writings , then this is a beautiful love song. You place your hand on His Bible, when you swear to tell the Truth His name is on our greatest Monuments, and all our money too, And when we Pledge allegiance, there's no doubt where we stand, There is no separation, we're one Nation under Him.

I like to be in America Okay by me in America Everything free in America For a small fee in America Buying on credit is so nice One look at us and they charge twice I have my own washing machine What will you have not to keep clean Skyscrapers bloom in America Cadillacs zoom in America Industry boom in America Twelve in a room in America Lots of new housing with more space Lots of doors slamming in our face I'll get a terrace apartment Better get rid of your accent Life can be bright in America If you can fight in America Life is all right in America If you're a white in America Here you are free and you have pride Long as you stay on your own side Free to be anything you choose Free to wait tables and shine shoes Everywhere grime in America Organized crime in America Terrible time in America You forget I'm in America I think I'll go back to San Juan I know a boat you can get on Bye Bye Everyone there will give big cheer!

This song also shows a great deal of how the late 60s generation was paranoid about their surroundings and especially the government. But i dont think the america i would find today would be any help to the chaos. I am thinkin' 'bout the days We led ourselves astray In more than many ways Here, within the time we've spent Wonderin' what we meant By livin' all those years By livin' all those years We are here with nothing to do today It's something we can't explain And tomorrow, where will we be tomorrow? G G D His name is on our greatest monuments, and all our money too. I'm not talking to congress or you politicians Or Panthers or Muslims or Nixon or Birch, I'm addressing this song to the church.

Saints and children we have gathered here to hear the sacred story And I'm glad to bring it to you with my best rhyming and rhythm 'Cause I know the thirsty listen and down to the waters come And the Holy King of Israel loves me here in America And if you listen to my songs I hope you hear the water falling I hope you feel the oceans crashing on the coast of north New England I wish I could be there just to see them, two summers past I was And the Holy King of Israel loves me here in America And if I were a painter I do not know which I'd paint The calling of the ancient stars or assembling of the saints And there's so much beauty around us for just two eyes to see But everywhere I go I'm looking And once I went to Appalachia for my father he was born there And I saw the mountains waking with the innocence of children And my soul is still there with them wrapped in the songs they brought And the Holy King of Israel loves me here in America And I've seen by the highways on a million exit ramps Those two-legged memorials to the laws of happenstance Waiting for four-wheeled messiahs to take them home again But I am home anywhere if You are where I am And if you listen to my songs I hope you hear the water falling I hope you feel the oceans crashing on the coast of north New England I wish I could be there just to see them, two summers past I was And the Holy King of Israel loves me here in America.
