"Fourth Of July" as written by Mariah Carey and Walter N. Afanasieff....
Trembling
Starry eyed
As you put your hand in mine

It was twilight
On the Fourth of July
Sparkling colors were
Strewn across the sky
And we sat close enough
That we just barely touched
While roman candles
Went soaring above us and baby

Then you put your hand in mine
And we wandered away
I was trembling inside
But I wanted to stay
Pressed against you there and leave the world behind
On that Fourth of July

So starry eyed (so starry eyed)
On the flowery hillside
Breathless and fervid
Amid the dandelions
As it swept over me
Like the wind trough the trees
I felt you sigh with a
Sweet intensity and baby

Then you put your hand in mine (your hand in mine)
And we floated away
Delicately lay entwined
In an intimate daze
A crescent moon began to shine (began to shine)
And I wanted to stay (stay)
Tangled up with you among the fireflies
On that Fourth of July (Fourth of July)

Thunder clouds (thunder clouds)
Hung around (hung around)
So threateningly (so threateningly)
Ominously hovering
And the sky (the sky)
Opened wide (opened wide)
Showering (oh yeah yeah9

Then you put your hand in mine (put your hand in mine)
And we ran from the rain (in the pouring rain, baby)
Tentatively kissed goodnight (tentatively kissed goodnight)
And went our separate ways (ways)
And I've never truly felt the way that I
Felt the Fourth of July (Fourth of July, Fourth of July)

Truly I have never felt the same inside
Like that Fourth of July (Fourth of July, Fourth of July)
Truly I could never feel the same as I
Felt that Fourth of July (Fourth of July), oh baby

    General CommentThis song just takes me to another place...I wonder if it was true...but I started listening to it right after making love for the first time and it would tear me apart, since I never felt the same way again...about something so unexpected and beautiful to me like it was with this person I had known for years. It wasn't a Fourth of July, it happened a different day of the year, but I will never forget it...

    "Tentatively kissed goodnight
    And went our separate ways
    And I've never truly felt the way that I
    Felt the Fourth of July..."

    The bittersweet feeling that you know it's not something built to last...but it was the most wonderful taste of love you've ever had.
