Lyrics

American Lightning

Written By: Alex Holz

Denise is never giving in
It's make or break it in Boston
I wrote a letter and gave on up
And wondered if she ever loved me
Now, or then?
The heart is just as strong as the pen

Katie's never coming back
Lost her head and got off track
Moved out to the middle west
and I never saw her again
Counting down from ten
The world's a better place I'm sure

They say
You can't push lightning
You've got to find a way to escape

If you don't look around
The world won't strike you down

Alana oh where you gone?
Miss California
I never trusted you in the first place
Made of mistakes and rhymes
But the trouble is, she wins
Almost every time

I'll fly
Fitted for the sun
Kamikaze test pilot
But you can call me Icarus

They say
You can't push lightning
You've got to find a way to escape

If you don't look around
The world won't strike you down
