Ben Lee – American Television lyrics

Back in the day, when I was a teenager
Out on my own fall in love with strangers.
Oh no desire, what are you putting me through?
You look beautiful in 1992.
I'm watching, what do I want to be?
Baby, I'm in love with possibility.
Give me s**, and give me patience.
I can't wait, I can't wait. Change the station.
I'm watching american television.
Back in the day waiting for a sign to move.
I got nothing to say, I got something to prove.
Oh me, oh my, teenagers get bored.
You look beautiful in 1994.
I'm dreaming, it's not a fantasy.
Baby, I'm in love with reality.
Give me joy, give me emotion.
I can't wait, I can't wait, change the program.
I'm watching american television.

Here we are, now we are the boulevard.
Dropped off our fear at the junkyard.
Oh man, we can turn it up load.
You look beautiful, right here, right now.
I'm still watching, what do I want to be?
Baby I'm in love with possibility.
Give me s**, indecision.
I'm watching american television.
I'm watching, what do I want to be?
I'm watching america.
