They were married in September back in 1969
They travelled, these two Indians,
To find some peace of mind
They stood for love and freedom
They were children of their time oh oh

They lived in a world that was cold and uncaring
They swore they would change it
With loving and shareing
They'll never live like their parents have done
Their innocence shone like the sun

American hearts, so filled with emotion
American hearts, so easily broken

Now they've got a family and a cottage in the hills
He's always working late to pay the mortgage and the bills
And she has trouble sleeping
So the doctor gives her pills oh oh

Who are these strangers who used to be lovers
Now they've got nothing to say to each other
Too far apart to discuss their mistakes
They filed for divorce and it breaks their
American hearts, so fiiled with emotion
American hearts, so easily broken

Ah - American hearts
Ah - American hearts, American hearts

Now that it's over they'll each go on living
Never forgetting but somehow forgiving
They'll care for their children protect them with pride
And that's how their dream will survive in
American hearts, so filled with emotion
American hearts, so easily broken

American hearts, so filled with emotion
American hearts, so easily broken
