Charted: 49
  • You know I adore you
    I'm crazier for you
    Then I was at sixteen
    Lost in a film scene
    Waving homecoming queens
    Marching band playing
    I'm lost in the lights

    American glory
    Faded before me
    Now I'm feeling hopeless
    Ripped up my prom dress
    Running through rose thorns
    I saw the scoreboard
    And ran for my life

    Ah, ah, ah
    No cameras catch my pageant smile
    I counted days, I counted miles
    To see you there
    To see you there
    It's been a long time coming but

    It's you and me
    That's my whole world
    They whisper in the hallway, "she's a bad, bad girl" (okay!)
    The whole school is rolling fake dice
    You play stupid games, you win stupid prizes
    It's you and me
    There's nothing like this
    Miss Americana and The Heartbreak Prince (okay!)
    We're so sad, we paint the town blue
    Voted most likely to run away
    With you

    My team is losing
    Battered and bruising
    I see the high fives
    Between the bad guys
    Leave with my head hung
    You are the only one
    Who seems to care

    American stories
    Burning before me
    I'm feeling helpless
    The damsels are depressed
    Boys will be boys, then
    Where are the wise men?
    Darling, I'm scared

    Ah, ah, ah
    No cameras catch my muffled cries
    I counted days, I counted miles
    To see you there
    To see you there
    And now the storm is coming, but

    It's you and me
    That's my whole world
    They whisper in the hallway, "she's a bad, bad girl" (okay!)
    The whole school is rolling fake dice
    You play stupid games, you win stupid prizes
    It's you and me
    There's nothing like this
    Miss Americana and The Heartbreak Prince (okay!)
    We're so sad, we paint the town blue
    Voted most likely to run away
    With you

    And I don't want you to (go)
    I don't really wanna (fight)
    'Cause nobody's gonna (win)
    I think you should come home

    And I don't want you to (go)
    I don't really wanna (fight)
    'Cause nobody's gonna (win)
    I think you should come home

    And I don't want you to (go)
    I don't really wanna (fight)
    'Cause nobody's gonna (win)
    I just thought you should know

    And I'll never let you (go)
    'Cause I know this is a (fight)
    That someday we're gonna (win)

    It's you and me
    That's my whole world
    They whisper in the hallway, "she's a bad, bad girl"
    Oh, I just thought you should know
    You should know

    It's you and me
    There's nothing like this
    Miss Americana and The Heartbreak Prince (okay!)
    We're so sad, we paint the town blue (paint it blue)
    Voted most likely to run away
    With you

    I don't really wanna (fight)
    'Cause nobody's gonna (win)
    I think you should come home

    And I'll never let you (go)
    'Cause I know this is a (fight)
    That someday we're gonna (win)
    Just thought you should know

    You and me
    That's my whole world
    They whisper in the hallway, "she's a bad, bad girl"
