"American Soul" Lyrics

U2 feat. Kendrick Lamar

[Intro: Kendrick Lamar]
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

[Verse 1: Bono]
It's not a place
This country is to me a sound
Of drum and bass
You close your eyes to look around

[Pre-Chorus: Bono]
Look around
Look around
Look around
It's a sound
Look around
Look around
It's a sound

[Verse 2: Bono]
It's not a place
This country is to me a thought
That offers grace
For every welcome that is sought

[Chorus: Bono]
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul

[Verse 3: Bono]
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

[Refrain]
Hold on, brother John
Too many mothers weeping
Dream on, brother John
In your dreams you can't be sleeping

[Chorus: Bono]
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul

[Bridge: Bono]
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

[Chorus: Bono]
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
