Bon Jovi Miss Fourth Of July Lyrics

I used to live but now I survive

I used to believe but now it’s just one day at a time

The circus is gone, it’s all packed away

The clown’s hat, the makeup’s been packed in his case

So we wave goodbye to Miss Fourth of July

The queen of the roses has left us with nothing but thorns

Don’t say we never tried, Miss Fourth of July

The stars that we reached for left us with nothing but dawn

I used to laugh but I’ve learned to cry

And I ain’t too proud to let you see tears fall from these eyes

For all of my hopes, my heartaches and fears

For a night I just watched and you walked out of here

I just waved goodbye to Miss Fourth of July

The queen of the roses has left us with nothing but thorns

Don’t say we never tried, Miss Fourth of July

The crown that we reached for left us with nothing

But your thorns left me wounded not unlike the truth

When innocence sang his last song

He’d tell me that it’s all gone

Just look me in the eyes and say it meant nothing at all

I used to live, I’ve learned to die

And I used to dream, I used to dream

So now we wave goodbye to Miss Fourth of July

The queen of the roses has left us with nothing but thorns

Don’t say we’ve never tried, Miss Fourth of July

The stars that we reached for, they’ve left us with nothing but dawn

Oh yeah

Nothing but a heavy hit of heartbreak

A handful of blues

Oh yeah

I’ll never get off these
