Where did you go, American girl?
A diamond in the hot New Jersey night,
The sweetest memories can break a man's heart,
Did you spread your wings and take flight?

What did I do, American girl?
Hope you know that I never intended,
To let you down or hurt you at all,
But least said, soonest mended.

I'm sorry,
I'm sorry that I let things get so out of control,
I'm sorry that I hit a wall,
I'm sorry that I lost what we had.
I'm sorry if I made you sad,
American girl.

What did you say, American girl?
Is it too late to salvage anything?
I hope you knew my intentions were good,
The clues are hiding there within.

What can I do, American girl?
What can I do to make everything okay?
I never lied, you know, my heart was truly yours,
What can I do? What can I say?

I'm sorry,
I'm sorry that I let things get so out of control,
I'm sorry that I hit a wall,
I'm sorry that I lost what we had.
I'm sorry if I made you sad,
American girl.

There's a township on the East Coast with a harbour,
There's an ocean with the city named alike,
In the distance Liberty is calling out to me,
But I just wait and count the cars on the turnpike.

I'm sorry,
I'm sorry that I let things get so out of control,
I'm sorry that I hit a wall,
I'm sorry that I lost what we had.
I'm sorry if I made you sad,
American girl.
