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 who 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 wanna 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
There's nothin' in your heart, boy, I thought that I could make you change
I'm so afraid

And it's not love, it's just the fear
You've been 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 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
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 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 who 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
I am 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
