lyrics

She had a true American heart
with stars in her eyes and a head full of dreams
wanting much more than she had at the start
it was so, so great

Talk to me dear in that mid-western tongue
subtle and sweet, clever and true
the bell of the ball is not always the one
that I want
I want

oh a songbird is singin' our song
this sun is the one that I want
to feel when I'm gone
to feel when Im gone

I know this is not the elegant life
with dust bowls and valleys
and a heat that won't end
the bell of the ball does not always end up
with her prince charming

oh a songbird is singin' our song
this sun is the one that i want
to feel when i'm gone
to feel when i'm gone
to feel when I'm gone
