4th of july
just you and i
and on the rooftop
we sit and stare forever

a velvet night
but sparks shine bright
the fireworks blare
and we will be together

i wait for you to ask me
to hold your hand
but you sit quietly
you're like the stars, beautiful and far

i'd like to take you to another place
and hold you in my arms
just let the shooting stars guide us
if only you would, only would

(so she reaches over
and kisses me on the cheek
...the answer i was hoping for)
