4th of July lyrics

Seasons never change, the sun it always shines
Swimming in Palm Springs, losing track of time
It's easy just to float to enjoy the ride
Don't be critical, only bring good vibes

Have a little fun,
Join ii with the tribe
There ain't nothing wrong
With turning off my mind
But if my old friends,
They could see me now,
Would they recognize?

On the 4th of July
Take a look around you, how did we get so high?
On the 4th of July
How can we be humble living in paradise?

Summer lasts forever,
but I know that the best times never last
Says she wants the shoes in every color
Whatever makes you feel good can't be bad.

How much is enough? it's all gonna burn
Doing what we love with every cent we earned
These luxuries do lie, they say do not be ashamed
Where'd you lose your pride?

On the 4th of July
Take a look around you, how did we get so high?
On the 4th of July
How can we be humble living in paradise?

Feels like I've got so far away
From living a hand to mouth and day to day
Uuh, but I know now that I wouldn't be here with you
If somebody up there weren't looking out for me

I think that I'm special, you say that it's selfish
I'll never forget what you gave up for me.

Why you think I'm special if I'm only selfish?
I'll never forget what you gave up for me.

Thought that I was special, you say that I'm selfish
I'll never forget what you gave up for me.

Why should I be special if I'm only selfish?
I'll never forget what you gave up for me.

What makes me so special? you think that I'm selfish
I'll never forget what you gave up for me.
