Wake up with somebody near you And at someone else's place You took acid and looked in the mirror Watched the beard crawl around on your face Oh, the revolution was here That would set you free from those bourgeoisie In the morning everything's clearer When the sunlight exposes your age
But that's okay And that's okay
Grab your clothes and head to the doorway If you dance out, no one complains Find the place where you can be boring Where you won't need to explain That you're sick in the head and you wish you were dead Or at least instead of sleeping here you prefer your own bed, come on You just suck at self-preservation Versus someone else's pain
So you feel drained And insane And insane
He was leather and you were screaming Swinging chains against the stage And you couldn't know he was leaving But now more will go with age, you know So get up and stop your complaining You know that you're the only one who's been destroying all the fun Look what happened when you were dreaming Then punch yourself in the face So you kiss and you clutch but you can't fight that feeling That your one true love is just awaiting your big meeting So you never even asked for names You just look right through them as if you already came It's a drug of the heart and you can't stop the shaking 'Cause the body wants what it's terrible at taking, oh And you can't remember the meaning But there's no going back against this California feeling
Dream (Sha-bang, sha-bang) American dream (Sha-bang, sha-bang) American dream (Sha-bang, sha-bang) American dream (Sha-bang, sha-bang, oh oh)

Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
