VERSE 1:
 She was an American girl raised on promises
 She started 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

VERSE 2:
 Yeah it was kind of cold that night
 She stood alone on the balcony
 She could hear the cars roll by down on 441 like waves crashin' on the beach
 And for one desparate
 Moment there, crept back to her memory
