The Night I Painted The Sky Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I came from the north escaping convention
Modern invention that won't let me be
To the shores of St. Martin with my fiction addiction
To restart the fire, a dreamer's remedy

Independence Day, and all I remember
Was a midnight rainbow that fell from the sky
As I stand on the beach, I slowly surrender
To the child in me that can't say goodbye

The rockets in the air and the people everywhere
Put away their differences for a while
Oh, I am still a child, when it comes to something wild
Oh that was the night, I painted the sky

I dug in the sand like a boy on a mission
And there in my hands, a pyro's delight
If un bombadier, a night time magician
I sparked the sky, as the rockets fly from view

Rockets in the air and the people everywhere
Put away their differences for a while
Yes I am still a child, when it comes to something wild
Oh that was the night, I painted the sky

Oh the mortars they roar in anticipation
Proceeding the sigh of the uplifted eyes
It showers us all in sulfuric sensation
The colors shine and a fiery rhyme tonight

The rockets in the air and the people everywhere
Won't you put away your differences for a while?
I am but a child, when it comes to something wild
Oh that was the night, that was the night, oh that was the night
I painted the sky, painted the sky, painted the sky
