I still remember that night it was the 4th of July,
Still engraved in my mind and I'm not surprised,
There was no guns, hand to hand,
Their black, their white, their purple,
But they still down understand,
I'm gonna be alright, I'm gonna be okay, everything is gonna be fi-i-i-i-ine,
Back off, I wanna be alone, I wanna think it out and I'm thinking I want to go home,

Looks who's laughing now (look who's laughing now),
Pull it off some how and I said,
As I pass her by, I can see her cry, and I'll never forget,
The look that was in her eye, and when the music you know it played,
On and on and on so wont somebody tap her on the shoulder tell her life goes on.

3 years, 2 months, 1 week, 4 days, I am always counting down
Cause there ain't no easier way so trust me, you know that I tried,
And if I say it's easy than you I told a lie am gonna be alright,
I'm gonna be just fine, I down 5 billion left to go, am I next in line do I really want to know

Look who's laughing now (look who's laughing now),
Pull it off somehow and I said,
As I pass her by, I can see her cry, and I'll never forget,
The look that was in her eye, and when the music you know it played,
On and on and on so wont somebody tap her on the shoulder tell her life goes on.

I still remember that night it was the 4th of July,
Still engraved in my mind and I'm not surprised,
There was no guns, hand to hand,
Their black, their white, their purple,
But they still don't understand,
I'm gonna be alright, I'm gonna be okay,
Everything is gonna be fi-i-e-ine,
Back off, cause I wanna be alone, I wanna think it out and I'm thinking I want to go,

3 years, 2 months, 1 week, 4 days, I am always counting down
Cause there ain't no easier way so trust me, you know that I tried,
And if I say it's easy than you know I told a lie am gonna be alright,
I'm gonna be just fine, 1 down 5 billion left to go am I next in line do I really want to know,

Look who's laughing now,
Pull it off some how when I said,
As I pass her by, I can see her cry-y-y, and I'll never forget,
The look that was in her eye, and when the music you know it played,
On and on and on, so won't somebody tap her on the shoulder and tell her life goes on.
