lyrics

She opens up her house door at five o' clock
Finishing a letter when she hears a knock
Old New England at a boil in a Le Creuset
Her nervous smile lighting up his atmosphere
He wonders, in that minute, how did he get here?
Both are watering soil and placing their bets

They don't need proof, for there are no odds to run
American boy, american girl in love
Still hearts in an echoing silence, they are not out for blood
American boy, american girl in love

Walking past the shops on that dusty road
Where guards have been stationed since the war took hold
The sword may never depart from their home
They just want to be alone

They don't need proof, for there are no odds to run
American boy, american girl in love
Still hearts in an echoing silence, they are not out for blood
American boy, american girl in love

What's there to prove?
All buttoned up and attractively arranged
With nothing to lose but a hand to hold and an innocence of ways
A long since forgotten face

They don't need proof, for there are no odds to run
American boy, american girl in love
Still hearts in an echoing silence, they are not out for blood
American boy, american girl in love
