lyrics

Verse 1:
I know that I’m not your DREAMGIRL
And you show me that by giving me no MERCY
I liked the way you seemed to be in the beginning
and not THE STONE you’re becoming

Hook 1:
Cause YOU MIGHT DIE TRYING to get back with me
If you continue not answering
I’m on email #34
guess I’m under THE DREAMING TREE
Do you know what sorry means
I guess we’ll have to see
Don’t go please stay with me

Chorus:
You’re such an AMERICAN BABY
Come on LOVER LAY DOWN
Let’s WORK IT OUT
You’ve got no need to worry cause
ever since Brokeback Mountain
it’s okay to be TRIPPING BILLIES
Stayin on GREY STREET
up on the ROOFTOP
scraping out the JIMI THING

Verse 2:
I know we got off on the wrong foot
And you wish a bus would CRASH INTO ME
I’ve got SO MUCH TO SAY I see how you’re putting
all the THE SPACE BETWEEN YOU AND ME

Hook 2:
We’re TWO STEPs away each and EVERYDAY
but I don’t wanna SAY GOODBYE
IF ONLY i could get you to stay
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY
Hey WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
FUNNY THE WAY IT IS

Chorus:
You’re such an AMERICAN BABY
Come on LOVER LAY DOWN
Let’s WORK IT OUT
You’ve got no need to worry cause
ever since Brokeback Mountain
it’s okay to be TRIPPING BILLIES
Stayin on GREY STREET
up on the ROOFTOP
scraping out the JIMI THING

Chorus:
You’re such an AMERICAN BABY
Come on LOVER LAY DOWN
Let’s WORK IT OUT
You’ve got no need to worry cause
ever since Brokeback Mountain
it’s okay to be TRIPPING BILLIES
Stayin on GREY STREET
up on the ROOFTOP
scraping out the JIMI THING

Bridge:
It’s like I’ve said in my past to my ex
Forever is forever
And I don’t want us to end
Before we got together

Chorus:
You’re such an AMERICAN BABY
Come on LOVER LAY DOWN
Let’s WORK IT OUT
You’ve got no need to worry cause
ever since Brokeback Mountain
it’s okay to be TRIPPING BILLIES
Stayin on GREY STREET
up on the ROOFTOP
scraping out the JIMI THING

Chorus:
You’re such an AMERICAN BABY
Come on LOVER LAY DOWN
Let’s WORK IT OUT
You’ve got no need to worry cause
ever since Brokeback Mountain
it’s okay to be TRIPPING BILLIES
Stayin on GREY STREET
up on the ROOFTOP
scraping out the JIMI THING
