National Anthem

Album: Handwritten (2012)
  • I never will forget you my American love
    And I'll always remember you, wild as they come
    And though if I saw you I'd pretend not to know
    The place where you were in my heart is now closed
    I already live with too many ghosts

    Now everybody lately is living up in space
    Flying through transmissions on invisible airwaves
    With everything discovered just waiting to be known
    What’s left for God to teach from his thrown?
    And who will forgive us when He's gone?

    So, take what you need now honey
    And do what you like
    Don’t worry about me Mama, I’m alright

    And I can't stand the weather, no I never liked the rain
    We drink on the job then we go home early
    And I remember she used to look so good in that dress
    Now she just screams how I promised her more than this
    Take it easy baby, it ain't over yet

    So, take what you need now honey
    And do what you like
    Don’t worry about me Mama, I'm alright

    And if there's something you need
    And if there's something you find
    Whatever gets you through the night
    Whatever gets you through the night

    I never will forget you my American love
    And I'll always remember you wild as they do come Writer/s: BRIAN FALLON
