I'm America's sweetheart,

I'm America's sweetheart, try'na get away
Try'na get away.

You make it hard to leave, but it's easier for me to stay
You make it hard to leave,
+
I am so afraid
But it's easier for me to stay.
+
And I've had it up to here with the fighting, baby
I am so afraid.
+
We're not fooling anyone these days
  +
I don't wanna stray, but, boy, I'm so afraid
   
And I've had it up to here,
+
But it's not love that keeps me here
With the fighting, baby,
+
And it's not what you want to hear, so
We're not, fooling anyone,
 
These days, I don't wanna stray.
 
But, boy, I'm so afraid.
 
   
But it's not love,
+
I'm goin' back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
That keeps me here,

Never coming back, boy
And it's not what,

No matter what you do, I'll say, "'Cause I'm so afraid."
You want to hear.

Thought that I could make you,
 
Change, I'm so afraid.
 
   
But it's not love,

We were just teenagers when we fell in love
That keeps me here.

Drivin' in your fast car, lookin' at the stars above
  +
But it was not enough
  +
You should never come between a woman and her dream
  +
And a man that never knew his place

There's no easy way to come back from where you came
   
We were just teenagers,

But it's not love that keeps me here
When we fell in love.

There's no easy way, to come back,
 
From where you came.

And it's not love, it's just the fear
That keeps me here,

Lyrics Edit

Version one Edit

I'm America's sweetheart, try'na get away
You make it hard to leave, but it's easier for me to stay
I am so afraid
And I've had it up to here with the fighting, baby
We're not fooling anyone these days
I don't wanna stray, but, boy, I'm so afraid

But it's not love that keeps me here
And it's not what you want to hear, so

I'm goin' back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never coming back, boy
No matter what you do, I'll say, "'Cause I'm so afraid."

And I've had it up to here with the panic and the fear
There's nothin' in your heart, thought that I could make you change
I'm so afraid

But it's not love that keeps me here

We were just teenagers when we fell in love
Drivin' in your fast car, lookin' at the stars above
But it was not enough
You should never come between a woman and her dream
And a man that never knew his place
There's no easy way to come back from where you came

But it's not love that keeps me here
And it's not what you want to hear, so, baby

Now I'm goin' back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never comin' back, boy
No matter what you do I'll say, "'Cause I'm so afraid."

Oh, I've had it up to here with the panic and the fear
Nothin' in your heart, boy, I thought that I could make you change
But I'm so afraid

And it's not love, it's just the fear
That you've put down for all these years
But I'm leavin' now

I'm goin' back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never coming back, boy, no matter what you do or say
I am done being afraid

Oh, I've had it up to here with the panic and the fear
There's nothing in your heart, I thought that I could make you change
But I'm so afraid

Oh, it's not love that keeps me here
It's not love that keeps me here
I'm done being afraid
I am done being afraid

Oh, oh, oh

Version two Edit

I'm America's sweetheart, try'na get away
You make it hard to leave, but it's easier for me to stay
Boy, I'm so afraid
And I've had it up to here with the fighting, baby
We're not fooling anyone these days
I don't wanna stray, but, boy, I'm so afraid

But it's not love that keeps me here
And it's not what you want to hear, so

I'm goin' back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never comin' back, boy
No matter what you do, I'll say, "'Cause I'm so afraid."

And I've had it up to here with the panic and the fear
There's nothin' in your heart, thought that I could make you change
I'm so afraid

We were just teenagers when we fell in love
Drivin' in your fast car, lookin' at the stars above
But it was not enough
You should never come between a woman and her dream
And a man that never knew his place
There's no easy way to come back from where you came

So I'm goin' back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never comin' back, boy
No matter what you do, I'll say, "'Cause I'm so afraid."

Oh, I've had it up to here with the panic and the fear
Nothin' in your heart, boy, I thought that I could make you change
But I'm so afraid

And it's not love, it's just the fear
That you've put down for all these years
But I'm leavin' now

I'm goin' back to Santa Monica, New York to L.A.
Never comin' back, boy, no matter what you do or say
I am done bein' afraid

Whoa, I've had it up to here with the panic and the fear
There's nothing in your heart, I thought that I could make you change
I am so afraid

Oh, it's not love that keeps me here
It's not love that keeps me here
I'm done being afraid
I am done being afraid

Oh, oh, oh
