Lyrics
I used to see you on every T.V
Your smiling face looked back at me
I used to see you on every T.V
Your smiling face looked back at me

Then they caught you with the girl next door
People's money piled on the floor
Accusations that you try to deny
Revelations and rumors begin to fly

Now you think about reaching out
Try to get some help from above
Now you think about reaching out
Try to get some help from above
Reporters crowd around your house
Going through your garbage like a pack of hounds
Speculating what they may find out
It don't matter now, you're all washed up

You wake up in the middle of the night
Your sheets are wet and your face is white
You tried to make a good thing last
How could something so good, go bad, so fast?

American dream, American dream
American dream, American dream

Don't know when things went wrong
Might have been when you were young and strong
Don't know when things went wrong
Might have been when you were young and strong

Reporters crowd around your house
Going through your garbage like a pack of hounds
Speculating what they may find out
It don't matter now, you're all washed up

Don't know when things went wrong
Might have been when you were young and strong
American dream, American dream
Don't know when things went wrong
Might have been when you were young and strong
American dream, American dream
