5th of July

We were searching for freedom

Bent on believing

We found it in each other arms

Sparkling and spinning,

Lit up and living

With gun powder love in our hearts

Chorus:

He was kissing me, wanting me, fireworks and flames

Holding me, telling me beautiful things

Set the world on fire, till we burned out the sky,

When the smoke cleared, there were tears in my eyes

I felt just like the fifth of July

I felt just like the fifth of July

We ran out of matches

Now there’s nothing but ashes

We fell like stars to the ground

And though we’re just embers

I’ll always remember

How high we were before we came down

Chorus:

He was kissing me, wanting me, fireworks and flames

Holding me, telling me beautiful things

Set the world on fire, till we burned out the sky,

When the smoke cleared, there were tears in my eyes

I felt just like the fifth of July

I felt just like the fifth of July

Now I’m missing him and wanting those fireworks

and flames

Still hear him telling me beautiful things

I’ve got no regrets, no, I won’t forget

Nothing lasts forever when it burns so bright

And when the smoke cleared from the dark empty sky

I felt just like the fifth of July

I felt just like the fifth of July
