American Girl

The Third Three Years - 2:40
(Originally by Tom Petty)

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 trying
She had one little promise
She was gonna keep.

Oh yeah, all right,
Take it easy baby,
Make it last all night.
She was an American girl.

It was kind of cold that night.
She stood alone on her balcony.
She could hear the cars roll by
Out on 441
Like waves crashing over the beach.
And for one desperate moment there,
He crept back in her memory.
God it's so painful,
Something that's so close,
And still so far out of reach.
