She told me she could be the one
Told me that she cared
She told me she’d be by my side
No matter how things fared
She told me that she loved me
Said she needed me
She told me that I made her happy
Close my eyes so I can’t see

She hides from me, she lies to me
She goes to school, she’s beautiful
Her hair is blonde, she’ll sing a song
If you ask nicely
Her stares are icy
And she was the American Ideal

She told me she’d take care of me
Never go away
She told me that she’d help me if
The world got in the way
She told me that she loved me
Forced me to believe
She told me that I made her happy
But never dreamed the dream

She loves me and she runs from me
She’s never there, as if I care
And with a frown she’ll break you down
If you ask nicely
She’ll break you nightly
And she was the American Ideal

Nothing real.
