All The Way From America


You called all the way from America
And said
Hang on to love
Girl
But the weeks
And the months
And the tears
Passed by
And my eyes couldn't
Stand the strain
Of that promised love
All the way from America

You called all the way from America
And said
I'll soon be home girl
But the years
And the tears
And the fears
Passed by
And my heart couldn't
Stand the pain Of that promised love
All the way from America
All the way from America

I stayed all along
And I waited 'round
For youu to knock at my door
But the knock never came
And no ring at all
And now I sit
And wonder
Why
You made that
First call
All the way from America

I don't believe I'll stay here
I don't think I want to wait here
Anymore
And if you search for me baby
Better bring some more love
Than you declared
All the way from America
