lyrics

Monterrey, 1995
I would give anything to climb a mountain today.

But I'm here, and I'm here with you,
and you're beautiful,
and come to think of it,
I wouldn't give you away

In Taluca
My father said the air was so thin he couldn't sleep -
and the heat nearly drove him insane.

Stopped by the cops
Just ten miles from the border.
Put a twenty behind your license,
in ten seconds you're free to go

Now it's the fourth of July.
And when the fireworks blast off tonight I will kiss you
Until that moment I am waiting alone

With all the stars in the sky
and explosions in the night
I think we'll be fine

When the American flag waves,
the colors will make us brave,
it will be alright.

Mexico
Just a few hundred miles South -
gives me chills,
fear and a good kind of thrill.

When my passport comes,
I can go anywhere that I want to,
Drive South in New Mexico,
or to Canada from Ohio

and do you know that about me?
It's always, "Anywhere but here."
But then anywhere turns to shit,
and all I'm left with is nowhere.

And from the smoke in your car
after you promised me that you'd quit,
I can promise you that I never really cared at all about it.
i never cared

But now it's the fourth of July,
and when the fireworks blast off tonight I will kiss you
Until that moment I am waiting alone
Please god, I hope I don't have to go through this alone

With all the stars in the sky
and explosions in the night,
I think we'll be fine

When the American flag waves,
i don't care, I was already brave,
It will be alright.
