She came out west
To find the sun
She lost her name
But found a new one
Amy goes to school all day
But at night in the neighborhood
They call her
Amphetamine

She is perfect in that fucked up way
That all the magazines
Seem to want to glorify these days

She looks like a teenage anthem
She looks like she used to be happy with
The girl inside

She looks so bored sometimes
She has that super pale skin
And those soft green eyes
She looks like she
Could have been happy
In a better life

She came out west
Just to break away clean
From her family and her friends
And a little girl's dream
All she wants to do every night
Is to sit beside my window
And listen to the sirens

She is perfect in that fucked up way
That all the magazines
Seem to want to glorify these days

She looks like a teenage anthem
She looks like she should have been happy
In another life

In another life

She came out west
Just to break the spell
After three long years'
In a marriage from hell
Six months clean
Living sober and right
The doctors tell her
Everything will be alright

Yeah you just take your pill
And everything will be alright

She looks like a teenage anthem
She looks like a magazine girl
She looks like a teenage anthem
Like she used to be happy
In another world

She looks like a teenage anthem
She is happy with the girl inside
She looks like a teenage anthem
And looks like she could have been
Happy in another life

In another life
Happy in another life

Met her at a party
And I took her home
She is the saddest girl
That I have ever known
She wakes me up
In the middle of the night
Just to tell me
Everything will be alright
Amy smiles at me and tells me
Everything will be alright

I tell myself the same damn thing

Everyday

Everything will be alright
