歌詞

My girl America is just a youth in this world Her smile is more precious than the sparkle of pearls And though her age reads she's just a young girl Age behind her eyes show the pain that she's swirled Through the hand that's been dealt though it's quiet as kept The weight was all felt last night when she slept And as she crept into the dreams of the things of her past seems to have grown so fast way beyond her own class though they're right there with her hers brothers and her sisters A natural born leader even when her peers diss her My girl she's at a crossroads people praying for her Some are preying on her magazine ads sex drama smoking marajuana Longing for a father to call her daughter She's part of a generation longing for reconciliation And this future that they're facing and this poison that they're tasting My girl I know this love that you're chasing My girl America's crying when she's lying on her bed at night I can see that she's screaming when she's dreaming for her freedom My girl America's dying while she's trying just to stop this fight Don't stop believing my girl America Boys with hungry eyes have been beating her door Telling her that's what's she's for trying to rob her at her core Then leave calling her a whore but still she knows there's more I know she knows there's more because there's a voice she can't ignore Cause it was founded in the foundations from the day of her creation In God we trust engraved in the treasures of her nation And the void the boys can't fill With the tipping of the bottle or the popping of the pill But still most of her friends don't care as they glare Ready to drown the funnel as they frown down the tunnel They stumble and they tumble breaking down into rubble My girl America stop can't you see It's not the circumstances that determine who you're gonna be But how you deal with these problems and pains that come your way It's for you that I pray with hope for a brighter day So I say your deliverance is coming My girl America's crying when she's lying on her bed at night I can see that she's screaming when she's dreaming for her freedom My girl America's dying while she's trying just to stop this fight Don't stop believing my girl America Faith like a child from your first birth You left it in the dirt on your worst hurt And I see each tear and every scar The hands that have held you where you are And I can see we've strayed so far A king born under that morning star As a crown of thorns was placed to erase Each tear that's touched your face His palms and sides were pierced with speres He hung in love just to draw you near My girl out of this whole world Can't you see this is where we started My girl America's crying when she's lying on her bed at night I can see that she's screaming when she's dreaming for her freedom My girl America's dying while she's trying just to stop this fight Don't stop believing my girl America My girl America's crying when she's lying on her bed at night I can see that she's screaming when she's dreaming for her freedom My girl America's dying while she's trying just to stop this fight Don't stop believing my girl America His palms and sides were pierced with speres He hung in love just to draw you near My girl out of this whole world Can't you see this is where we started Where we started where we started my girl America
