Sadcore Sundays: “Your Best American Girl” by Mitski

For all of you POC and bi-racial babes out there, this song feels your feels of the struggle of dating someone not of color.

Lyrics to “Your Best American Girl” by Mitski:

If I could, I’d be your little spoon
And kiss your fingers forevermore
But, big spoon, you have so much to do
And I have nothing ahead of me
You’re the sun, you’ve never seen the night
But you hear its song from the morning birds
Well I’m not the moon, I’m not even a star
But awake at night I’ll be singing to the birds

Don’t wait for me, I can’t come

Your mother wouldn’t approve of how my mother raised me
But I do, I think I do
And you’re an all-American boy
I guess I couldn’t help trying to be your best American girl

You’re the one
You’re all I ever wanted
I think I’ll regret this

Your mother wouldn’t approve of how my mother raised me
But I do, I finally do
And you’re an all-American boy
I guess I couldn’t help trying to be the best American girl
Your mother wouldn’t approve of how my mother raised me
But I do, I think do
