Imani Coppola – Independence Day lyrics

I live here in exile, my home is not my home.
They're miles and oceans apart.
So I long for mountains, beyond the gray city walls,
I pray tonight they'll fall.

^ Then the Son will shine on me.
Send the light and set me free,
I'll be off and on my way.
On my independence day.
All the songs I could not sing
And all the words I could not say
I'll be shouting everything
On my independence day.

Everyday I dream of leaving,
Because there's no end in sight.
Got to shine my own light.
This can't wait any longer
For you to make it all right
It's time to live my own life


I can feel my trouble disappear.
Anywhere the road will lead
If it takes me far away from here.
