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, yeah, and if she had to die...
Tryin', she had one little promise she was gonna keep
Oh yeah, 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 the balcony
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by out on 441, like waves crashing on the beach
And for one desperate moment there, he crept back in her memory
God, it's so painful when something that's so close is still so far out of reach

Oh yeah, alright, take it easy, baby, make it last all night
She was an American girl
