Bruce Springsteen – Independence Day lyrics

Well Papa, go to bed now, it's getting late
Nothin’ we can say is gonna change anything now
I’ll be leaving in the morning from St. Mary’s Gate
Wouldn't change this thing even if we could somehow

Cause the darkness of this house has got the best of us
There's a darkness in this town that's got us too
But they can't touch me now, and you can't touch me now
They ain’t gonna do to me, what I watched them do to you

So say goodbye, it's independence day
It’s independence day, all down the line
Just say goodbye, it's independence day
It’s independence day this time

Now, I don't know what it always was with us
We chose the words and, yeah, we drew the lines
There was just no way this house could hold the two of us
I guess that we were just, too much of the same kind

Well, say goodbye, it's independence day
It’s independence day, all boys must run away
So say goodbye, it's independence day
All men must make their way, come independence day

(Sax Solo)

Now the rooms are all empty down at Frankie’s joint
And the highway, she's deserted, clear down to Breakers point
There's a lot of people leaving town, now
Leaving their friends, their homes
At night they walk that dark and dusty highway all alone

Well Papa, go to bed now, it's gettin’ late
Nothin’ we can say, can change anything now
Because there's just different people coming down here now
And they see things in different ways
And soon everything we’ve known, will just be swept away

So say goodbye, it's independence day
Papa now, I know the things you wanted
That you could not say
But, won’t you, just say goodbye, it's independence day
I swear, I never meant to take those things away
