lyrics

With jet black hair and big brown eyes
Such a sweetness beneath that hard-bitten disguise
She does what she wants and she does it so well
She’s got secrets, she’ll never tell

Her scars will cut you deep like a knife
The most beautiful thing you’ll ever see in this life
She’ll break your heart with a single glance
But you’ll always know right where she stands

Across the ocean, across the sea
Lives a small town girl from Tennessee
The whole damn world is burning down
And she’s across the sea in London town

You knew her back when she was a girl
And the powder disappeared up her nose with a twirl
But now she’s a woman, so honest and true
So fetching and foreign to you

She flies like a falcon, her pretty wings spread
She circles the globe while you’re stuck in your head
Once in a blue moon she comes back through town
With a passion so pure and unbound

Across the ocean, across the sea
Lives a small town girl from Tennessee
The whole damn world is burning down
And she’s across the sea in London town

She’s got a freedom you so wish you had
Some call it a death wish, but you know it ain’t that
She'll love you in ways you ain't been loved before
But she’s away on a far distant shore

There’s something about her that stays when she’s gone
Like a half remembered line from an old country song
A mystical vision you can never quite grasp
So you pray for her to come back

Across the ocean, across the sea
Lives a small town girl from Tennessee
The whole damn world is burning down
And she’s across the sea in London town
