The Band Perry

The Band Perry - Independence

rate me

Patient, Anticipation

Up till now I’ve been hurry up and waiting

At a bus stop, in Independence

Licking an ice cream cone

I’ve been kicking

I’ve been scheming

But this is as close as I’ve ever been to leaving

5 blocks away, a stones throw from home

But I’m as good as gone

I gotta get gone, gone, gone

Shooting like a gun, a gun, a gun

Skipping like a stone, stone, stone

Far as I can run

To where, freedom is free

There’s a road like a long grey ribbon far as I can see

And it’s pulling Independence out of me

Emancipation and paper chasin’

Leaving with question marks and mamas blessing

Put her picture in my pocket

Long with her rosary

Some say I’m crazy, a little loco

And most of my friends will live a die in this zip code

It might be for me, but until I go

How am I ever supposed to know

I gotta get gone, gone, gone

Shooting like a gun, a gun, a gun

Skipping like a stone, stone, stone

Far as I can run

To where, freedom is free

There’s a road like a long grey ribbon far as I can see

I’m bustin’ out of Independence

Independence bustin’ out of me

I’m bustin’ out of Independence

Independence bustin’ out of me

I gotta get gone, gone, gone

Shooting like a gun, a gun, a gun

Skipping like a stone, stone, stone

Far as I can run

To where, freedom is free

There’s a road like a long grey ribbon far as I can see

There’s a road like a long grey ribbon far as I can see

And it’s pulling Independence out of me
