Trembling 
Starry eyed 
As you put your hand in mine

It was twilight 
On the Fourth of July 
Sparkling colors were 
Strewn across the sky 
And we sat close enough 
That we just barely touched 
While roman candles 
Went soaring above us and baby 

Then you put your hand in mine 
And we wandered away 
I was trembling inside 
But I wanted to stay 
Pressed against you there and leave the world behind 
On that Fourth of July 

So starry eyed (so starry eyed)
On the flowery hillside 
Breathless and fervid 
Amid the dandelions 
As it swept over me 
Like the wind trough the trees 
I felt you sigh with a 
Sweet intensity and baby 

Then you put your hand in mine (your hand in mine)
And we floated away 
Delicately lay entwined 
In an intimate daze 
A crescent moon began to shine (began to shine)
And I wanted to stay (stay)
Tangled up with you among the fireflies 
On that Fourth of July (Fourth of July)

Thunder clouds (thunder clouds)
Hung around (hung around)
So threateningly (so threateningly)
Ominously hovering 
And the sky (the sky)
Opened wide (opened wide)
Showering (oh yeah yeah9

Then you put your hand in mine (put your hand in mine)
And we ran from the rain (in the pouring rain, baby)
Tentatively kissed goodnight (tentatively kissed goodnight)
And went our separate ways (ways)
And I've never truly felt the way that I 
Felt the Fourth of July (Fourth of July, Fourth of July)

Truly I have never felt the same inside 
Like that Fourth of July (Fourth of July, Fourth of July)
Truly I could never feel the same as I 
Felt that Fourth of July (Fourth of July), oh baby
