Evan & Jaron – American Girl lyrics

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 trying to
One little promise she was gonna keep

Oh ya, alright
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

Well it was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on a balcony
She could hear the cars roll by
Out on 4/41, like waves crashing on the beach

And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in a memory
God, it's so painful
Something that's so close
Is still so far out of reach
(Music solo)
I am an American girl
Oh ya, I'm an American girl
I am an American girl
I'm an American girl
Oh ya, I'm an American girl
Take it easy, babe
I'm an American girl.
