Verse 1

Well she was an

American girl.

Raised on


She couldn't help

thinking that there was


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,


take it easy baby

make it last all night

She was

an American


Verse 2

Well it was kinda cold that night

She stood alone on the balcony

Yeh, she could hear the cars roll by,

out on four-fortyone like waves crashing on the beach

And for one des'rate moment there

he crept back in her memory

God it's so painful when something that's so close is still so far to reach. **
