Fall Out Boy - Fourth of July

[Intro]
(You and I were, you and I were fire.
You and I were, you and I were fire.
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fire)

[Chorus]
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I miss you in the June gloom too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I’d never miss you
But I guess you’ll never know
Where the bridges I have burned never led back home
On the fourth of July

[Verse 1]
I’ll be as honest as you let me
I miss your early morning company
If you get me
You are my favorite "what if"
You are my best "I’ll never know"

[Hook]
I’m starting to forget
Just what summer ever meant to you
What did it ever mean to you?
[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean any of it
I just got too lonely, lonely, whoa
In between being young and being right
You were my Versailles at night

[Chorus]
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I miss you in the June gloom too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I’d never miss you
But I guess you’ll never know
Where the bridges I have burned never led home
On the fourth of July

[Verse 2]
My 9 to 5 is cutting open old scars
Again and again 'til I’m stuck in your head
Had my doubts, but I let them out
You are the drought
And I’m the holy water you have been without

[Bridge]
And all my thoughts of you
They could heat or cool the room
And now don’t tell me you cried
Oh, honey, you don’t have to lie

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean any of it
I just got too lonely, lonely, whoa
In between being young and being right
You were my Versailles at night

[Chorus]
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I'll miss you when the June gloom too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I’d never miss you
But I guess you’ll never know
Where the bridges I have burned never led home
On the fourth of July

[Bridge]
I wish I’d known how much you loved me
I wish I cared enough to know
I’m sorry every song’s about you
The torture of small talk with someone you used to love

[Outro]
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I miss you when the June gloom too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I’d never miss you
But I guess you’ll never know
Where the bridges I have burned never really led home
On the fourth of July

“Fourth Of July” compares the sparks flying between two people to the sparks flying in the air on July 4th, American Independence Day. The instrumental sample comes from Son Lux’s “Lost It to Trying”/ When Fall Out Boy streamed the song, Pete captioned it with “T’es la plus belle saison de ma vie,” which is French for “You are the most beautiful season of my life.”
