Fourth of July is a song from Fall Out Boy's sixth studio album, American Beauty / American Psycho.

This song is based upon a Fourth of July barbecue party which My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy along with some close friends attended. Pete said on livejournal in 2005 that he was watching the sunset with Mikey after going on a date at the waterpark and was in love with him a few days before postings on the 4th an entry that ended with "hot and miserable but totally in love".

LyricsEdit

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

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 in the June gloom too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were, fire, fireworks
I said I'd never miss you but I guess you'll never know
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home on the fourth of July

I'll be as honest as you'll 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"
I'm starting to forget just what summer ever meant to you
What did you ever mean to you

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean any of it
I just got too lonely, lonely, woah
And in between being young and being right
You were my Versailles at night

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 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
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home on the fourth of July

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 my drought
And I'm the holy water you can't live without
And all my thoughts of you, they could heat or cool the room and no
Don't tell me you were crying, oh honey you don't have to lie

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean any of it
I just got too lonely, lonely, woah
And in between being young and being right
You were my Versailles at night

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 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
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home on the fourth of July

I wish I knew 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

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 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
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home on the fourth of July
