​American Girl

This song is by Divit.

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, if she had to die trying
She'd have one little promise she was going to 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 her 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
