  • [Verse 1]
    Is this just an illusion
    That I made inside my head to get me by?
    Twenty years in debt
    Twenty years in the government
    Twenty years can never get me by

    [Pre-Chorus]
    And I feel you close
    Feel you close like you wanted me to
    Feel you close
    Like you wanted me to
    Believe in you

    [Chorus]
    Rise to the top of the world, America
    America, don't you cry
    Lift me up
    Give me strength to press on
    Rise to the top of the world
    America
    America, don't you cry
    Lift me up
    Give me strength to press on

    [Verse 2]
    From farmers in fields
    To the tallest of the towers that fall and rise
    1-7-7-6
    The names upon the list
    For all the ones that gave until they died
    Don't you hold back
    I can see in your mind, and your mind will set you free

    [Pre-Chorus]
    And I feel you close
    Feel you close like you wanted me to
    Feel you close
    Like you wanted me to
    Believe in you

    [Chorus]
    Rise to the top of the world, America
    America, don't you cry
    Lift me up
    Give me strength to press on
    Rise to the top of the world
    America
    America, don't you cry
    Lift me up
    Give me strength to press on

    [Chorus]
    Rise to the top of the world, America
    America, don't you cry
    Lift me up
    Give me strength to press on
    Rise to the top of the world
    America
    America, don't you cry
    Lift me up
    Give me strength to press on
