Independence Day

This song is by Elliott Smith and appears on the album XO (1998).

Future butterfly, gonna spend the day higher than high
You'll be beautiful confusion, ooh
Once I was you

Ah, ah
Ah, ah

I saw you caught between all the people out makin' a scene
In a bright, ideal tomorrow, ooh
Don't go too far. Stay who you are

Ah, ah
Everybody knows, everybody knows
Everybody knows you only live a day, but it's brilliant anyway (ah)

I saw you at (ah) a perfect place (ah). It's gonna happen soon, but not today
So go to sleep (ah) and make the change (ah). I'll meet you here tomorrow
Independence Day, Independence Day, Independence Day
