4th of July

Music & Lyrics: John Popper

 

Well she hated the 4th of July

Bombs bursting in air, and she'd never know why

She'd keep me up all night, too terrified to cry

Oh yes, she hated 4th of July

 

Don't you be scared, don't you start to shake

Go back to sleep because I am wide awake

I'm right here, I'm not going anywhere tonight

Feel my hand, I'm gonna hold you till the early light

 

And when the thunder clapped, she'd run to me afraid

She tried to be brave, but she couldn't figure out the terrible sound it made

I was smarter, but she just couldn't see

And when the thunder clapped, she'd always run to me

 

Don't you be scared, don't you start to shake

Go back to sleep because I am wide awake

I'm right here, I'm not going anywhere tonight

Feel my hand, I'm gonna hold you till the early light

 

Oh yes, she loved the world on a crisp, autumn day

The leaves would turn her color, the children were at play

Sit on hilltops with her, she'd smile as if to say

You couldn't touch the world when autumn comes this way

 

And I don't believe she cared for getting old

The limbs move a little slower, the hearing just goes cold

One day she looked at me through a gray haired eye

And I couldn't believe she was telling me good bye

 

Don't you be scared, don't you start to shake

Go back to sleep because I am wide awake

I'm right here, I'm not going anywhere tonight

Feel my hand, I'm gonna hold you till the early light

 

And I do believe her soul was rich and blue

We taught each other lessons, lessons that we knew

When we kept growing, there was nothing we could do

But I loved her and I know she loved me too

 

Now you can call me a sentimental fool

But I learned more from her than I ever did in school

I still get apprehensive, I still remember why

When the thunder claps or it's the 4th of July

 

Don't you be scared, don't you start to shake

Go back to sleep because I am wide awake

I'm right here, I'm not going anywhere tonight

Feel my hand, I'm gonna hold you till the early light

 

Oh yes she hated the 4th of July
