Some other versions of "Independence Day"

A future butterfly, gonna spend the day
Higher than high
You'll be a beautiful confusion, ooh
Once I was you

Ah, ah...

I saw you caught between all the people out
Making 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

I saw you out
A perfect place
It's gonna happen soon
But not today
So go to sleep
Amid the change
I'll meet you here tomorrow
Independence day
Independence day
Independence day
