Fourth of July
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
