I was bleeding when I wrote this song for you
something blue
I was needing some attention
some affection
something to do
I was sleeping in my nightmare
when I awoke
I wanted you there
just to lie here
right beside me
something new
someone like you

you're my american muse
I tell myself I can have what it is I want
I tell myself that everyday
I tell myself I will have what it is I want
and baby I want you

soon you're leaving
won't be seeing much of you for a while
my love's leaving deep inside you
don't be scared
this love is rare
don't look for meaning in these reasons
just be grateful you were there
summer romance in november
just remember
