I'm America's sweetheart
Tryin' to get away
You make heart delay, but it's easier for me
Stay, why I'm so afraid
And I had it up to here with the fightining
Baby we're not fooling anyone these days
I don't wanna stray
But I'm so afraid

But it's not love that keeps me here
And it's not what you want to hear
So I'm going back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never coming back no matter what you do I'll say
'Cuz I'm so afraid
And I had it up to here, with the panic and the fear
There's nothing in your heart
Thought that I can make it change
But I'm so afraid
But it's not love that keeps me here

We were just teenagers when we fell in love
Driving in your fast car, looking at the stars above
But it was not enough
You should never come between a woman and a dream
And a man who never knew his place
There's no easy way, to come back from where you came

But it's not love that keeps me here
And it's not what you want to hear
So baby now I'm going back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never coming back no matter what you do I'll say
'Cuz I'm so afraid
And I had it up to here, with the panic and the fear
Nothing in your heart
Boy I thought that I can make it change
But I'm so afraid
But it's not love it's just the fear
You've put down for all these years

But I'm leaving now
I'm going
Back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never coming back when no matter what you do I'll say
I am done beeing afraid

And I had it up to hill, with the panic and the fear
There's nothing in your heart
I thought that I can make it change
But I'm so afraid
Oh it's not love that keeps me here
It's not love that keeps me here
I'm done beeing afraid
I am done beeing afraid
Oh oh oh
