American Girl

Well, she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn’t help thinking that there was a little more to life
Somewhere else
After all it was a great big world – With lots of places to run to
And if she had to die – Tryin, she
Had one little promise she was gonna keep

Oh yeah – alright – Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night (Make it last all night)
She was an American girl

Well, it was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on the balcony
Yeah – she could hear the cars roll by – Out on four forty one like
Waves crashing on the beach
And for one desrate moment there – He crept back in her memory
God, its so painful when something that’s so close
Is still so far out of reach

[Chorus]
