American Heart

Album: single release only (2012)
  • It beats like a drum down in New Orleans
    Sings like a Motown melody
    It dreams like California
    Bigger than a Texas sky
    It bleeds, it scorns, but it shines when times get hard
    You can't break an American heart

    She's up before the sun, on the run
    Another dollar another day another cup of coffee
    Thank you Lord
    For giving me one more
    She still leans on her dreams but it seems
    Sometimes she's the only one who still believes that life is hard
    So she takes it on with an American heartWriter/s: JIM BEAVERS, JONATHAN SINGLETON
