My American Lover

My American Lover she’s on fire

My American Lover’s pure desire

Doesn’t know what she wants

Want is what she needs

It fills the hollowness inside her beauty tends to breed in me and My American Lover

My American Lover’s on her way

My American Lover’s tempting fate

“Westward ho! Ya gotta go”, is all she has to say

Staring at the setting sun with breakfast on her plate

She’ll  turn me on and she’s gone behind the things she’ll claim to never be

My American Lover

No more amour for poor fati

My American Lover

I love her

Behind The Song...

My American Lover

I was standing at an Open MIc night in Granby, Connecticut with the Host, my friend, Dave Costa, when a young woman from Brazil approached us inquiring about our mutual drummer friend (drummers get all the girls) Evan Kalish. Before she made a b-line to Evan, she parted with us by saying, “I’m gonna make him my American lover.” I took note and used the phrase for a song about loving my country even when it is simply being bat shit crazy. Loving something includes helping it to be all it can be and that includes calling it out when it is not living up to its promise. That is how it got great and that is how it is going to stay great.
