She comes out on Fridays every time
I could've been anyone she'd seen
She couldn't make another day
I could have been anyone you see

Playing the changes for all of the boys
Making me feel so incredible
She comes out of closets every night
Where she could keep everything from me
she's nothing but porcelain underneath her skin
American girls all weather and noise
Holding a candle up to my hand

But I could get the same thing anywhere
Well, it's all right and I'm OK
And I said "I might, I might, I might"
If it's alright with you

She never came around
I'm going through my closet,
I could've been anyone you see
There's nothing but pills and ashes under my skin
American girls all weather and noise
Holding a candle up to my hand

Cause I'll try again if you let me try
Coming into bed so edible
American girls oh
American girls

American girls
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You make me cry,
you make me cry
You make me cry
Oh, oh, oh, yeah
