Fall Out Boy – Fourth Of July lyrics

[Intro]
(You and I were, you and I were fire.
You and I were, you and I were fire.
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fire)

[Chorus]
It was the fourth of July,
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks!
That went off too soon
, and I miss you in the June gloom too.
It was the fourth of July,
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks!
I said I’d never miss you, but I guess you’ll never know,
Where the bridges I have burned never led back home,
On the fourth of July.

[Verse 1]
I’ll be as honest as you let me,
I miss your early morning company, if you get me.
You are my favorite "what if",
You are my best "I’ll never know".
I’m starting to forget just what summer ever meant to you,
What did it ever mean to you?

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean any of it,
I just got too lonely, lonely, whoa
In between being young and being right,
You were my Versailles at night.

[Chorus]
It was the fourth of July,
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks!
That went off too soon, and I miss you in the June gloom too.
It was the fourth of July,
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks!
I said I’d never miss you, but I guess you’ll never know,
Where the bridges I have burned never led back home,
On the fourth of July.

[Verse 2]
My 9 to 5 is cutting open old scars,
Again and again 'til I’m stuck in your head.
Had my doubts, but I let them out, you are the drought,
And I’m the holy water you have been without.
And all my thoughts of you, they could heat or cool the room,
And now don’t tell me you cried, oh, honey, you don’t have to lie.

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean any of it,
I just got too lonely, lonely, whoa
In between being young and being right,
You were my Versailles at night.

[Chorus]
It was the fourth of July,
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks!
That went off too soon, and I miss you in the June gloom too.
It was the fourth of July,
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks!
I said I’d never miss you, but I guess you’ll never know,
Where the bridges I have burned never led back home,
On the fourth of July.

[Bridge]
I wish I’d known how much you loved me,
I wish I cared enough to know.
I’m sorry every song’s about you,
The torture of small talk with someone you used to love.

[Outro]
It was the fourth of July,
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks!
That went off too soon, and I miss you in the June gloom too.
It was the fourth of July,
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks!
I said I’d never miss you, but I guess you’ll never know,
Where the bridges I have burned never led back home,
On the fourth of July.
