"She's American" as written by and Adam Hann Daniel George Bedford....
A big town
Synthetic apparitions of not being lonely
Look, he's having a breakdown
Oh what a let down, a shame, I think he might die
Oh, she's dancing enthralling, I guess I gotta wait my turn
I said, don't fall in love with the moment
She said I've got a lot to learn

You know I'm in love with this city
But the green is turning brown
And I just look pathetic now

If she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
And we're so intelligent, she's American
If she says I've got to fix my teeth
Then she's so American (she's American)
And if she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
And we're socially relevant, she's American
If she says I've got to fix my teeth
Then she's so American (she's American)

She's inducing sleep to avoid pain
And I think she's got a gun divinely decreed and custom made
She calls on the phone like the old days, expecting the world
Don't fall in love with the moment
And think you're in love with the girl

There's no more water in this city
But be careful or you'll drown
You think you've got it figured out

If she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
And we're so intelligent, she's American
If she says I've got to fix my teeth
Then she's so American (she's American)
And if she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
And we're socially relevant, she's American
If she says I've got to fix my teeth
Then she's so American (she's American)

Well, your face has got a hold on me
But your brain is proper weird
Are you feeling the same?
You just keep nodding at me looking vacant

She's American
She's American
If she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
And we're so intelligent, she's American
If she says I've got to fix my teeth
Then she's so American (she's American)
If she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
And we're socially relevant, she's American
If she says I've got to fix my teeth
Then she's so American (she's American)

    My InterpretationThere's lots in here, but the line that really resonates with me is "Don't fall in love with the moment And think you're in love with the girl." As a fellow Brit who's foolishly/naively fallen in love with a couple of American girls, it resonates.

    Maybe the things you love about her are facets of her geography, and not her personality. And maybe you forgive too many things you wouldn't do otherwise - "You know I'm in love with this city, But the green is turning brown
    And I just look pathetic now".

    And maybe she seems to give him the attention he craves, but that's because he's "socially relevant". He's the British guy she can impress her friends with. But, "Oh, she's dancing enthralling, I guess I gotta wait my turn".

    All us naive yankophiles want the romantic transatlantic relationship that 90s films pretended is possible (see Notting Hill, The Holiday, Serendipity). In reality, she's just a girl - American or not, she has all the imperfections of a human being.

    Just because she's American doesn't mean she's right for you. If she is right, she will genuinely care about you as a person, and not just use you as a social accessory, a shoulder to cry on, or both.

    The lesson is: see who she is underneath her cultural norms, before you fall in love with America instead of the girl.
