American Girls - Counting Crows

She comes out on Fridays every time
Stands out in a line
I could have been anyone she'd seen
She waits another week to fall apart
She couldn??t make another day
I wish it was anyone but me
I could have been anyone you see
She had something breakable just under her skin
American girls are weather and noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle up to my hands
Making me feel so incredible
She comes out of closets every night
But then she locks herself away
Where she could keep everything from me
I could have been anyone you see
She??s nothing but porcelain underneath her skin
American girls are weather and noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle right up to my hand
Making me feel so incredible
Little shiver shaking me everyday
But I could get this same thing anywhere
So if she goes away
well it's alright and I'm ok
hey, she said come back again tonight
I said I might I might I might
She said well that's alright
If it's alright, it's alright with you
If it's alright if it's alright with me
I waited for an hour last Friday night
She never came around
She took almost everything from me
I??m going through my closets
Trying on her clothes, almost everyday
She could give anyone but me
I wish it was anyone but me
Nothing but pins and ashes under my skin
American girls are weather and noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle right up to my hand
Making me feel so incredible
If I make you cry please tell me why
I can try again if you ask me to try
American girls are feathers and cream
Coming to bed so edible
American girls oh
American girls 2X
oh 4X
American girls oh
American girls 2X
oh 4X
You make me cry 5X
Hey Miss American girls
