American Dream

American Dream

Casting Crowns



All work, no play may have made Jack a dull boy,
But all work, no God has left Jack with a lost soul.
But he's moving on full steam.
He's chasing the American dream,
And he's gonna give his family finer things

"Not this time, son. I've no time to waste.
Maybe tomorrow, we'll have time to play"
And then he slips into his new BMW
And drives farther and farther and farther away.

'Cause he works all day and tries to sleep at night.
He says things will get better;
Better in time

[Chorus]
So he works and he builds with his own two hands,
And he pours all he has in a castle made with sand.
But the wind and the rain are comin' crashing in.
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands.
His kingdom stands

Well his American Dream is beginning to seem
More and more like a nightmare
With every passing day.
"Daddy, can you come to my game?"
"Oh Baby, please don't work late."
Another wasted weekend,
And they are slipping away

'Cause he works all day and lies awake at night
He tells them things will get better;
Just take a little more time

[Chorus]
So he works and he builds with his own two hands,
And he pours all he has in a castle made with sand.
But the wind and the rain are comin' crashing in.
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands.
His kingdom stands

He used to say, "Whoever dies with the most toys wins."
But if he loses his soul, what has he gained in the end?
I'll take a shack on the Rock
Over a castle in the sand.

Now he works all day and cries alone at night.
It's not getting any better;
Looks like he's running out of time

[Chorus]
'Cause he worked and he built with his own two hands,
And he poured all he had in a castle made with sand.
But the wind and the rain are coming crashing in.
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands.
His kingdom stands

All they really wanted was you.
All they really wanted was you.
All they really wanted was you.

Think: What are YOUR priorities?
