It’s the 4th of July and the fireworks are over
She sits in the car next to me.
She stares out the window, the world's far away,
And I am too.

She takes a long, long look with her weary, weary eyes,
Takes a deliberate breath.
I can’t do this anymore, been waiting so long,
To give back, give back what I gave to you.

She waits so long.
She waits so long.
She waits so long.
She waits so long.

The flowers you picked and put on the table,
Trying so hard to make this work.
You want me to need you the way that you need me,
But I don’t know.

Maryanne I think I know what the problem is.
We need a little space and some time.
Are you leaving me? How can you say that?
How could you say that now?

She waits so long.
She waits so long.
She waits so long.
She waits so long.

She says I can’t take it here no more
I feel much better than before
You missed your chance
Get out of my way
You’re never going to see me here again.

You swallowed my thoughts and you kept them for later,
You needed our love to survive.
Now you walk out and you leave me forever,
I’ll be the one who is burning inside.
I'm Burnin' inside
