Verse 1:

When the sun fell low in the blood red sky yeah
Every house called out as we passed them by yeah
She would grab my hand as the trees leaned in yeah
Oh I'm still racing home from the place I've been

Chorus:

It was all I knew, I was waiting for the big one
And I stay forever (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)
American secrets (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)
Had a dream it was ours and we just didn't know yet

Verse 2:

We would drive by right through every lonely street yeah
Smell the truth in her hair felt the world in my feet yeah
But we were just two kids in a beat up car
Oh I'm still driving home from the things I've done

Chorus:

It was all I knew, I was waiting for the big one
And I stay forever (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)
American secrets (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)
Had a dream it was ours that we just didn't know yet (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)
American secrets (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)
Had a dream it was ours that was lost in the regrets

Bridge:

We were caught on the inside
Left it all on that bedside
Give me one more minute with those baby blues
We pull up
Oh she looks back and waves as I wait too long
I can picture her room as the lights go on
I'm still dancing alone with the way it was
I'm still dancing alone with the way it was
Give me one more, give me one more
Give me one more minute with my baby
Give me one more, give me one more
Give me one more minute with American secrets
Give me one more, give me one more
Oh she looks back and waves as she slips inside
Every hope in the world in those bright blue eyes
I'm still dancing alone with the way it was

Got my mind made up
And I'm coming back for you
I can hear your voice calling and I'll be there soon
I can see you there in the bedroom by those stairs
Oh I've always been running but I don't know where
And ohhh oh oooh and ohhh oh oooh
It took 25 years but I finally see
Not the boy I was in the car that you saw leave
I'm still not the man that I thought I'd be
But when those trumpets sound when the good Lord calls my name
Oh I'm gonna be with you
Oh I'm gonna be with you
And ohhh oh oooh
And ohhh oh oooh
It took 25 years but I finally see
And ohhh oh oooh
And ohhh oh oooh
It took 25 years but I finally see
It took 25 years but I finally see
It took 25 years but I think I see
