Yeah, she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She could not 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
There was one little promise that she was gonna keep

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

Yeah, it was kinda cold that night
As she stood alone on the balcony
And she could hear the cars roll by
On the highway, like waves crashing on the beach
And for one precious moment there
He crept back in her memory
God, it's so painful
Something that's so close
But still so far out of reach

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

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

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