3/4/08 Song of the Day

American Girl--Tom Petty

Well she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinkin 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
Yeah, and if she had to die
Tryin she had one little promise
She was gonna keep

Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

It was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on her balcony
She could the cars roll by
Out on 441
Like waves crashin on the beach
And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God it's so painful
Something that's so close
And still so far out of reach

Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

NO ASSISTING FURNITURE REMOVALS!!!!!!!!!

i was listening to it/singing it in the car and trying to remember why that was making me feel creepy. then finally i did: because the girl that gets kidnapped by buffalo bill in silence of the lambs was singing it in her car, before she decided to help the creepy man move a sofa into his van :/

a bit. it's nice to change things up ;)

This is a bit of a change of pace from day previous's song... :g
