lyrics

she called your name / but not in one word / she never could keep quiet / someone always heard / you thought you saw a light / you felt some hope return / but she still closed the door / and left your heart to burn / you got in the car to flee / from this place all was dead / you tried to get away from / all of those thoughts in your head / but when you reached the coast / you knew right then and there / that you would need to find a ship / to take you back over there / america / you’re full of promise / only when away / but upon return / to those states / i don’t wanna stay / so you casted off to sea / the horizon ahead / and while heading out you heard / that which you thought was dead / though by the time it came / rolled in a terrible storm / but not one of wind and rain / rather it was a brainstorm / thoughts whipped in new dimensions / you were sure to implode / and as the i of it rolled in / its true nature showed / it was her calling your name / that belle cracked a toll / you discovered there was no escape / on your heart she had a hold / america / you’re full of promise / only when away / but upon return / to those states / i don’t wanna stay
