  • Well the first day of spring, well it came and gone and the summer did too
    But winter's so long. And my heart still sings, sings for you. And I dream
    Of the one summer night I spent with you.

    And it still goes on like the 4th of July
    And my heart still beats like you're by my side
    And I dream of the day when you'll be mine
    And I'll fly sky high on the 4th of July.

    Well the first day of spring, well it came and gone and the summer did too
    But winter's so long. And my heart still sings, sings for you. And I dream
    Of the one summer night I spent with you.

    And then the rain came down and the sheets of grey and they washed our
    Love, my dreams away. And the rising sun, it never came. It just stayed
    There in that one summer day.

    And it still goes on like the 4th of July
    And my heart still beats like you're by my side
    And I dream of the day when you'll be mine
    And I'll fly sky high on the 4th of July.

    And the fireworks still pop in my head, the flag still flies overhead. And
    The banner still blows, still blow in the wind. The crowds still cheer, the
    Crowds still sing.

    And it still goes on like the 4th of July
    And my heart still beats like you're by my side
    And I dream of the day when you'll be mine
    And I'll fly sky high.

    And it still goes on like the 4th of July
    And my heart still beats like you're by my side
    And I dream of the day when you'll be mine
    And I'll fly sky high, happy 4th of July. Writer/s: AMY ELIZABETH MACDONALD
