Independence Day!

I couldn’t find a video with the lyrics, but I think the lyrics REALLY make this song.  And in honor of National Domestic Violence Abuse Awareness Month, I send this song out for all those victims of physical, verbal and emotional abuse.

Independence Day – Touched By An Angel Soundtrack

Sung by Imani Coppola

I live here in exile
My home is not my heart
They’re miles and oceans apart
So I long for the mountains
Beyond the grey city walls
I pray tonight they’ll fall

then the sun will shine on me
send the light and set me free
i’ll be off and on my way
on my Independence Day
all the songs i could not sing
and all the words i could not say
i’ll be shouting everything
on my Independence Day

every day i dream of leaving
cause there’s no end in sight
i got to shine my own light
just can’t wait any longer
for you to make it alright
it’s time to live my own life

chorus repeat

i can feel trouble disappear
anywhere the road will lead
if it takes me far away from here
