English III 4/15: "Independence Day" by Elliott Smith

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

I saw you caught between all the people out making a scene
And a bright ideal, tomorrow
Ooh, don't go too far
Stay who you are

Everybody knows
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
You only live a day
But it's brilliant anyway

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