American Pearl – Amphetamine Girl lyrics

She only wanted to feel alive inside
Three years of dyin' left her less than satisfied
Her daddy told her "girl get out while you're young
Do like your daddy says and not like your daddy done"
If she don't burn out then I guess she'll fade away
Hand of the devil don't tread on me
Don't run away with my amphetamine girl
Hand of the devil I'm comin' clean
Just don't run away with my amphetamine girl
She met the coolest junkie boy and paid his rent
He looked like jesus smokin' white trash cigarette
He said "now trust me love you can't get hooked on this"
Now they don't sleep at night there's somethin' they might miss
If she don't burn out then I guess she'll fade away
