"Fireworks" as written by and Per Hakan Gessle....
You put your stock in a girl you’d swear was all your own.
But all the while you think you have something that you don’t,

And it took a while to walk away from that.
Yeah it took a while to walk away from that.
It’s like I'd always say.

Chorus:
Fireworks on the fourth of July making up the plans, Up the plans that you made.
Nobody cares if there’s no girl by your side.
They're staring at the painted sky.

I close my eyes and pretend your sitting here with me.
While I try to put my finger on exactly what it was that made you leave.

Yeah it took some time to walk away from that.
Yeah it took some time to walk away from that
And time is all that I have.

(Chorus)

It goes like this and we never walk away, the past is the past but it’s here to stay.

(Chorus)

Pull it together boy you don’t look so well and you got nothing but time to kill

    General CommentIt's about someone struggling to get over a girl that meant a lot to him. The singer is reminding him that for the most part, nobody cares that you don't have a girlfriend, and that all that you have now is time and that you need to make the most of it. This means a little more to me today than ever being the Fourth of July and all and still struggling to get over a girl 7 months later...

    "Pull it together boy you don't look so well and you got nothing but time to kill" Love it and trying to live it.
