  • Got a one ticket down a two-way street
    Got the wind in my hair and there's dust on my feet
    I'm just trying to make it in America
    Only thing to my name is in old t-shirt
    Faded 1985 from the Stones concert
    And I'm dying to make it in America
    And I'm singing the words to my favorite song
    With the rag top down and my glasses on
    And I'm driving straight through America

    I wanna taste the sun
    Cause baby I'm born to run
    I gotta feeling that I'm not the only one
    And I, I wanna show some skin
    Yeah, baby I need the ocean
    And you can't stop me now I've got my heart in motion
    And I wanna make it in America
    Make it in America

    I can see my stars sunset and vine
    Gonna carve my name in the Hollywood sign
    Yeah, I gotta, gotta make it in America
    See me wearing a smile even if I'm broke
    I'll be singing the words from a song I wrote
    And I called it make it in America


    I wanna taste the sun
    Cause baby I'm born to run
    I gotta feeling that I'm not the only one
    And I, I wanna show some skin
    Yeah, baby I need the ocean
    And you can't stop me now I've got my heart in motion
    And I wanna make it in America
    Make it in America

    I can feel the sweat dripping down my face
    I can hear my heart as it starts to race
    And sometimes it's worth such a lonely place
    If a just push on I know that

    I wanna taste the sun
    'Cause baby I'm born to run
    I gotta feeling that I'm not the only one
    And I, I wanna show some skin
    Yeah, baby I need the ocean
    And you can't stop me now I've got my heart in motion
    And I wanna make it in America
