Girl America - Mat Kearney (马特·科尔尼)

My girl America is just a youth in this world

Her smile is more precious than the sparkle of pearls

And though her age reads she's just a young girl

The age behind her eyes show the pain that she's swirled

Through the hand that's been dealt though it's quiet as kept

The weight that she felt last night when she slept

And as she crept into the dreams of the things of her past

Seems to have grown so fast way beyond her own class

Though they're right there with her her brothers and her sisters

A natural born leader even when her peers dis her

My girl she's at a crossroads people praying for her

Some are preying on her magazine ads sex drama

Smoking m*******a longer for a father to call her 'daughter'

She's part of a generation longing for reconciliation

And this future that they're facing and this poison that they're tasting

My girl America's crying when she's lying on her bed at night

I can see that she's screaming when she's dreaming for her freedom

My girl America's dying while she's trying just to stop this fight

Boys with hungry eyes have been beating her door

Telling her that's what she's for trying to rob at her core

Then leave calling her a whore but still she knows there's more

I know she knows there's more because there is a voice she can't ignore

'Cause it was founded in the foundations from the day of her creation

In God we trust engraved on the treasures of her nation

And the void that the boys can't fill

With the tipping of the bottle or the popping of the pill

But still most of her friends don't care as they glare

Ready to drown down the funnel as they frown down the tunnel

They stumble and they tumble breaking down into rubble

My girl America stop can't you see

It's not the circumstances that determine who you're gonna be

But how you deal with these problems and pains that come your way

It's for you that I pray with hope for a brighter day

And so I say your deliverance is coming

My girl America's dying while she's trying just to stop this fight

Faith like a child from your first birth

You left it in the dirt on your worst hurt

And I see each tear and every scar

The hands that have held you where you are

And I can see we've strayed so far

A king born under that morning star

As a crown of thorns was placed to earase

Each tear that's touched your face

And his palms and sides were pierced with spears

He hung in love just to draw you near

My girl out of this whole world

Can't you see this is where we started

My girl America's crying when she's lying on her bed at night

I can see that she's screaming when she's dreaming for her freedom

My girl America's dying while she's trying just to stop this fight

My girl America's crying when she's lying on her bed at night

I can see that she's screaming when she's dreaming for her freedom

My girl America's dying while she's trying just to stop this fight
