She's American

Album: I Like It When You Sleep... (2016)
  • A big town
    Synthetic apparitions of not being lonely
    Look, he's having a breakdown
    Oh what a let down, a shame, I think he might die
    Oh, she's dancing enthralling, I guess I gotta wait my turn
    I said, don't fall in love with the moment
    She said I've got a lot to learn

    You know I'm in love with this city
    But the green is turning brown
    And I just look pathetic now

    If she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
    And we're so intelligent, she's American
    If she says I've got to fix my teeth
    Then she's so American (she's American)
    And if she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
    And we're socially relevant, she's American
    If she says I've got to fix my teeth
    Then she's so American (she's American)

    She's inducing sleep to avoid pain
    And I think she's got a gun divinely decreed and custom made
    She calls on the phone like the old days, expecting the world
    Don't fall in love with the moment
    And think you're in love with the girl

    There's no more water in this city
    But be careful or you'll drown
    You think you've got it figured out

    If she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
    And we're so intelligent, she's American
    If she says I've got to fix my teeth
    Then she's so American (she's American)
    And if she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
    And we're socially relevant, she's American
    If she says I've got to fix my teeth
    Then she's so American (she's American)

    Well, your face has got a hold on me
    But your brain is proper weird
    Are you feeling the same?
    You just keep nodding at me looking vacant

    She's American
    She's American
    If she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
    And we're so intelligent, she's American
    If she says I've got to fix my teeth
    Then she's so American (she's American)
    If she likes it 'cause we just don't eat
    And we're socially relevant, she's American
    If she says I've got to fix my teeth
    Then she's so American (she's American) Writer/s: GEORGE DANIEL, ROSS MACDONALD, ADAM HANN, MATTHEW HEALY
