"I used to change the pronoun from “she” to “he” whenever I did a cover and it’s been so interesting to discover how a song can take on an entire different meaning when sung by a woman to a woman." - Alice Pisano

Lyrics


She comes out on Fridays every time
And stands out in a line
I could've been anyone she'd seen
She waits another week to fall apart,
She couldnt make another day
I wish it was anyone but me
I could've been anyone you see
She had something breakable just under her skin

American girls all weather and noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle up to my hand
Making it feel so incredible

She comes out of closets every night
But then she locks herself away
Where she could keep everything from me
I could've been anyone you see
She's nothing but porcelain underneath her skin

American girls are weather and noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle right up to my hand
Making me feel so incredible

I waited for an hour last Friday night, she never came around
She took almost everything from me
I'm goin' through my closets, tryin' on her clothes almost everyday
I could've been anyone you see
I wish it was anyone but me
There's nothin but pills and ashes under my skin

American girls are weather and noise
Playing the changes for all of the boys
Holding a candle right up to my hand
Making me feel so incredible
If I made you cry, please tell me why
I'll try again if you let me try
American girls are feathers and cream
Come into bed so edible
