America (The Easy Answers of You And Me)

What should America be?

A country fo you? Or for me?

Most would say "The greatest nation in the world"

That's an easy answer, for a not-so-easy girl

But why? What makes us great?

Our money? Or lucky fates?

Representative Democracy?

If you can define that, youe doing better than me.

We should be a nation of tolerance

And not selectively

For I am you

America is you

And you are me
