Alec Benjamin – 1994 lyrics
[Kid's Choir Intro]

[Verse 1]
And this is where I broke my wrist
Where I thought I could fly
Thinking I was Superman
So you know you can't cry
Cause I wanted to be just like them
And save my city from crime
I wanted to be just like them, just like them, just like, them

Campbell's chicken noodle soup
When you stay home from school
Remember watching MTV
When there was still music for you
Just a kid on Cholla Street
From my city built in the sand
My father said "you'll be a man, be a man, be a man"

[Chorus]
I was born in 1994
I was born in 1994
I was, I was born
In 1994


[Verse 2]
I guess Santa Claus is just not real
And Batman can't fly
And nobody’s invincible
Because I know people die
I saw it on the news one day
When the towers fell down
September's not the same place now
Same place now, same place, now

Now tell me what
you wanna be
Because you grow up too fast
Cut my hair and sag my jeans
And never show up to class
Get ready cause it's time to leave
So pack up your bags
And go be who you wanna be, wanna be, wanna be

[Chorus]
I was born in 1994
I was born in 1994
I was, I was born
In 1994

[Bridge]
My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty
My country tis of thee, be who you wanna be
My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty
My country, my country, my country, my
...

[Chorus](2x)
I was born in 1994
I was born in 1994
I was, I was born
In 1994

    This song is amazing. Everything about it is true. I was not born in 1994 but it somehow can relate to me I guess that when you are younger you believe in all these things that turn out to be a lie like in the lyrics. Santa clause is just not real, batman just can't fly, and also people aren't invincible and you have to live with all these lies and this song is so realistic. I am not 100% sure this is correct but I feel like Alec Benjamin wrote this as he was understanding life like Santa isn't real, Batman can't fly, people aren't invincible they all die and a great example was when the twin towers fell because when they did there was a lot and a lot of people who died that day.
