Well, she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinking
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's gonna die tryin'
She had one little promise she was gonna keep

Oh yeah, alright
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
(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 four forty one
Like waves crashing on the beach

For one desperate moment
There he crept back in her memory
God, it's so painful when something that's so close
Can feel so far out of reach
