She comes out on Fridays every time
Stands out in a line
I could've 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
It could've been anyone you see
She had something breakable just under her skin
American girls, all weather & noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle up to my hand
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, all weather & noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle up to my hand
Making me feel so incredible
Little shivers shaking me every day
But I could get the same thing anywhere
So if she goes away
Well it's alright and I'm okay
"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 with you, then 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
I could've been anyone you see
I wish it was anyone but me
Theres nothing but pills and ashes under my skin
American girls, all weather & noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle right up to my hand
Making me feel so incredible
If I made you cry, please tell me why
Cause I'll try again if you let me try
American girls all feathers & cream
Come into bed so edible
