DAVE ALVIN lyrics - Fourth Of July

DAVE ALVIN
"Fourth Of July"

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

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

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

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

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