My America

  • Darlin', darlin', the moon went out tonight
    And I'm caught like a doe in your headlights
    Oh yeah, alright, I'm yours to knock around
    I'm a little too starstruck to wanna fight

    Oo-e-oo-ee, it's a cold hearted world
    oo-e-oo-ee-oo , I'm gonna be your girl
    It's a little too late to cry
    You're my America

    Not quite, snow white, it came down all night
    And put a filter of ash on the sunrise
    Oh yeah, alright, move a little bit closer
    Lay your big dirty hands on my innocence

    Oo-e-oo-ee, it's a cold hearted world
    oo-e-oo-ee-oo , I'm gonna be your girl
    It's just a little too late to cry
    You're my America

    Ooh, heaven laughs at us now, baby
    But we'll be shootin' it down, honey
    It's a little too late to hope and pray for a miracle
    You're my America

    Hey rockstar, you're my America
    Hey rockstar, you're my America
    You're my America, aah ha Writer/s: NATHAN PETER LARSON, NICLAS PATRIK FRISK, NINA PERSSON
