Description
Another Lo-fi special. This one's admittedly borderline lo-fi as I put an ounce more effort into the mix. Regardless, it's still pretty rough and all I'm able to crank out right now :)

Lyrics
we're down by the river
on the 4th of july
we're just staring out into the sky
we're waiting for the sun to go over the hill
and let the fireworks paint the night

when you touched my hand
it gave me such a thrill
i never wanted this night to end

and then you broke the news
you said 'I love you, but I only just wanna be your best friend'

please dont take this the wrong way
but i got too many friends today
i dont need another
i just wanna be your lover

dont ya get me wrong
i like your company
and i think that you'd make a good pal
but i got no room in my cherokee
for anyone but a full time lovin gal

please dont take this the wrong way
but i got too many friends today
i dont need another
i just wanna be your lover

I dont want to be your rock
I don't want to be your shoulder
I dont want to comfort you
when all your boyfriends screw you over
