The Band Perry – Independence lyrics

Patient anticipation up till' now I've been hurry up and waitin'
At a bus stop in independence lickin' an ice cream cone
I've been kickin' I've been schemin. This is as close
As I've ever been to leavin
Five blocks away a stone'sthrow from home.
But I'm as good as gone.

(Chorus)I gotta get gone, gone, gone.
Shootin' like a gun, a gun, a gun.
Skippin like a stone, stone, stone
Far as I can run to where freedom is free.
There's a road like a long grey ribbon far as I can see.
And it's pullin independence outta me.

Emancipation, paper chasin' leavin' with question marks
And momma's blessing
Put her picture in my pocket 'long with her rosary
Some say I'm crazy a little loco
And most of my friends will live and die in this zip code
It might be for me but until I go
How am ever I supposed to know

Chorus)I gotta get gone, gone, gone.
Shootin' like a gun, a gun, a gun.
Skippin like a stone, stone, stone
Far as I can run to where freedom is free.
There's a road like a long grey ribbon far as I can see.
I'm bustin outta independence, independence bustin' outta me(X2)

Chorus)I gotta get gone, gone, gone.
Shootin' like a gun, a gun, a gun.
Skippin like a stone, stone, stone
Far as I can run to where freedom is free.
There's a road like a long grey ribbon far as I can see.(x2)
And it's pullin independence outta me.
Independence
