She's waiting for me when I get home from work 
But things just ain't the same 
She turns out the light and cries in the dark 
Won't answer when I call her name 
On the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone 
The Mexican kids are shooting fireworks below 
Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July 
Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July 

(same as first verse) 
She gives me her cheek when I want her lips 
And I don't have the strength to go 
On the lost side of town in a dark apartment 
We gave up trying so long ago 

(repeat chorus) 

Whatever happened, I apologize 
So dry your tears and baby, walk outside 
It's the Fourth of July
