"Fourth of July" by Mariah Carey


Trembling

Starry eyed

As you put your hand in mine



It was twilight

On the fourth of July

Sparkling colours

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

On the flowery hillside

Breathless and fervid

Amid the dandelions

As it swept over me

Like the wind through the trees

I felt you sigh

With a sweet intensity

And baby



Then you put your hand in mine

And we floated away

Delicately lay entwined

In an intimate daze

A crescent moon began to shine

And I wanted to stay

Tangled up with you among the fireflies

On that fourth of July



Thunder clouds

Hung around

So threateningly

Ominously hovering

And the sky

Opened wide

Showering

Oh, yeah, yeah



Then you put your hand in mine

And we ran from the rain

(From the rain, yeah)

Tentatively kissed goodnight

And went our separate ways

And I've never truly felt

The way that I felt

The fourth of July

(Fourth of July)



Truly I have never felt the same inside

Like that fourth of July

(Fourth of July)

Truly I could never feel the same as I felt

That fourth of July

(Fourth of July)
