All The Way From America Lyrics

All The Way From America - Joan Armatrading

Written by:Joan Armatrading

 

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 alone and I waited 'round

 

For you 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 wanna wait here any more

 

And if you search for me baby

 

Better bring some more love than you declared

All the way from America

 

All the way from America

 

My heart couldn't stand the pain

That promised love

All the way from America

 

All the way from America

 

 

All the way from America
