Rihanna – American Oxygen lyrics

[Chorus]
Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American oxygen


[Refrain]
American oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American Oxygen

[Verse 1]
Oh say can you see, this is the American Dream
Young girl, hustlin'
On the other side of the ocean
You can be anything at all
In America, America
I say, can't see
Just close your eyes and breathe


[Chorus]
Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American oxygen

[Refrain x2]
American oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American Oxygen

[Verse 2]
Oh say, you see, this is the American Dream
Young boy, hustlin'
Tryna get the wheels in motion
But he can be anything at all
In America, America
I say, can't see
Just close your eyes and breathe

[Chorus]
Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American oxygen

[Bridge x4]
This is the new America
We are the new America

[Chorus]
Breathe out, breathe in
American oxygen
Every breath I breathe
Chasin' this American Dream
We sweat for a nickel and a dime
Turn it into an empire
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American oxygen

[Refrain x2]
American oxygen
Breathe in, this feeling
American, American Oxygen

[Bridge x2]
This is the new America
We are the new America
