american soul

Bono said to Rolling Stone Magazine that this song was a 'letter to America'.

Lyrics



Blessed are the bullies
For one day they will have to stand up
To themselves
Blessed are the liars
For the truth can be awkward

It's not a place
This country is to me a sound
Of drum and bass
You close your eyes to look around

Look around
Look around
Look around
It's a sound
Look around
Look around
It's a sound

It's not a place
This country is to me a thought
That offers grace
For every welcome that is sought

You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul

It's not a place
This is a dream the whole world owns
The pilgrim's face
It had your heart to call her home


You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul

American
American
Put your hands in the air
Hold on the sky
Could be too late
But we still gotta try
There's a moment in our life where a soul can die
And the person in a country when you believe the lie
The lie
There's a promise in the heart of every good dream
It's a call to action, not to fantasy
The end of a dream, the start of what's real
Let it be unity
Let it be community
For refugees like you and me
A country to receive us
Will you be our sanctuary
Refu-jesus

You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul
American Soul
American Soul
