Real debuted the Billboard Hot 100 on Aug. 30, 2008, the same date that the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China began, at number 92, along with four other tracks from the Team USA Soundtrack.

You read the news, it turns you inside out
And everybody feels the same as you
In uncertain times, the uncertain rules apply
Caught in the blind spot of being in love

Can you feel
Real like you are
Can you feel in love
When you're feeling alive
And the biggest chance that we can take is open arms and wide awake
Hold me now,
So we can feel alive
Tonight

I need to feel you there
I want to know where I belong
And I felt the sting, the sting of corrosion
And I need a safe place to close my eyes

Can you feel
Real like you are
Can you feel in love
When you're feeling alive
And the biggest chance that we can take is open arms and wide awake
Hold me now,
So we can feel alive

You, you were so lost
And it was so much more than you could bear
And I was caught in my defeat
You're alone and incomplete
Will this sound ever break down the wall

Can you feel
Real like you are
Can you feel in love
When you're feeling alive
And the biggest chance that we can take is open arms and wide awake
Hold me now,
So we can feel alive

(So I can feel alive...)
Tonight.

[] Note: John changed the first line to "You read the news, the stories never change" in the live versions he played after the Europe 2008 tour, probably because the original line also appears in Stay With You: "These streets, turn me inside out".
