American Movie

Written By: Ben Hazlewood

American Movie

Pull up by her house
She kisses Daddy goodbye
Comes up to me
Comes up to me and she says hi
This ain’t the line
But I guess I’ll play along
Once again the script’s gone wrong
Drives down the block
Meets other friends
Ditches me again, again and again
All I’ve wanted all my life is to be an
American movie

I keep thinking time after time
I just wish that she was mine
She means everything to me
But this ain’t no
American movie

I held her hand as we walk down the street
This is another game I can’t beat
She smiles, pretends she doesn’t notice me
Feel I’m sinking, hell what’s happening
Suddenly she’s gone and the scene’s all wrong
Where is my
American movie

No-one’s directing
Not everything does as planned
Not everyone
Not everyone is thin and tanned
There’s no theme song
I can’t sing along
But I still think about her all day long
She’s the one
And I would walk so far
Just to make her
My one and only co-star

I held her hand as we walk down the street
This is another game I can’t beat
She smiles, pretends she doesn’t notice me
Feel I’m sinking, hell what’s happening
Suddenly she’s gone and the scene’s all wrong
Where is my
American movie

Fly away
Get out of this day
Fly away
I never liked you anyway

I held her hand as we walk down the street
This is another game I can’t beat
She smiles, pretends she doesn’t notice me
Feel I’m sinking, hell what’s happening
Suddenly she’s gone and the scene’s all wrong
Where is my
American movie
