Independence Day Lyrics


by Malcolm Gets and Will Chase. From Story of My Life, The.


ALVIN
THIS IS IT, TOM.
THIS IS IT.


THOMAS
The morning before the big trip.


ALVIN
TWENTY-FOUR HOURS AND I WILL BE THERE.


THOMAS
All I could think was... boy this day came fast.
ALVIN
TO RUFFLE YOUR FEATHERS AND GET IN YOUR HAIR.


THOMAS
All I could think was... I have things to take care of.


ALVIN
THE WHOLE TOWN CAN PERISH, I DONíT EVEN CARE.


THOMAS
But all I could say was... see you tomorrow.


ALVIN
THIS IS IT, TOM.
THIS IS IT.


I never thought this day would actually come.


THIS MORNING I FINALLY BELIEVED IT.
I WOKE UP AND FELT IT BEGIN.


"IíM SHAKING THE DUST OF THIS
CRUMMY OLD TOWN OFF MY FEET."


Take that, George Bailey!


I'LL MAKE UP A SIGN FOR THE BOOKSTORE
AND HANG IT WHERE PEOPLE COME IN
SAYING ďCLOSING FOR CHRISTMAS.
THE OWNER IS HITTING THE STREET.Ē


LOOK, IíLL NEVER BE A WORLD TRAVELER.
I JUST WASNíT BUILT THAT WAY.
STILL, THIS COULD BE MY INDEPENDENCE DAY.


THOMAS
Aren't you blowing this a little out of proportion?


ALVIN
I THINK OF THE TIMES THROUGHOUT HISTORY
A DAY UNREMARKABLY DAWNED
THEN ONE MAN WAS SEIZED
BY THE RESTLESS DESIRE TO EXPLORE.


HE LOOKED UP AND SCANNED THE HORIZON
AND WONDERED WHAT MIGHT LIE BEYOND.
THEN HOISTED HIS ANCHOR
AND SAILED FOR SOME UNCHARTED SHORE.


WELL NOW MY DESTINYĎS CALLING,
AND I CAN HEAR IT SAY
THIS COULD BE MY INDEPENDENCE DAY.


THOMAS
It's just a trip to the city, Al.


ALVIN
Of course you wouldnít understand.


THIS IS A FEELING YOU MUST FEEL EVERY DAY
AS PUBLISHINGíS LATEST MAN-OF-THE-HOUR.


Four bestsellers and counting, Tom.


I REALLY CANíT COMPETE WITH YOUR RESUME.


BUT SOMETHING DEEP IS STIRRING
AND SHIFTING INSIDE.
THE BOUNDARIES ARE BLURRING
AND OPENING WIDE.
IT'S SUDDENLY OCCURRING
THAT FINALLY I DESERVE
TO STRAY AND REACH AND YEARN
AND DARE TO SAY
IT MIGHT JUST BE MY TURN.


ITíS RARE THAT YOU NOTICE A MOMENT
THE MOMENT ITíS HURRYING BY
AND INSTANTLY FRAME IT
AND SAY THATíS WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED.


BUT NOW, THEREíS A MOMENT APPROACHING.
IíM STARING IT STRAIGHT IN THE EYE.
PREPARED FOR A FUTURE
OF MOMENTS THAT ARENíT PREARRANGED.


OLD GEORGE BAILEY WAS CHEATED
HE NEVER LEFT HIS TOWN.
BEATEN DOWN AND DEFEATED
HE EVEN TRIED TO DROWN.
BUT LOOK AT ME, IíVE BEEN TREATED
TO LIFE TURNED UPSIDE-DOWN.
WELCOME TO MY INDEPENDENCE DAY.


THIS IS IT, TOM.
THIS IS IT.


THOMAS
All I could think was... I never told Ann he was coming.


ALVIN
CHRISTMAS, THE TWO OF US, JUST LIKE BEFORE.


THOMAS
All I could think was... I never told Alvin I'm engaged.


ALVIN
LIKE BACK IN MY LIVING ROOM OVER THE STORE.


THOMAS
All I could think was... things here have gotten complicated.


ALVIN
WHO SAYS THE HOLIDAYS HAVE TO BE MORE?


THOMAS
But all I could say was...


ALVIN
THIS IS IT, TOM.
THIS IS...


THOMAS
Al. Don't come.


(Silence.)


ALVIN
Why not?


THOMAS
It's not a good time. Al? What do you think, Al?


ALVIN
THIS IS IT, TOM
ME AND YOU.


THOMAS
THE NEXT TIME THAT WE SAID GOODBYE


ALVIN
IF YOU COMMIT, TOM
YOU SEE IT THROUGH.


THOMAS
WHY IS IT ALWAYS GOODBYE?


Goodbye, Al.


ALVIN
Goodbye, Tom.


THOMAS
RELATIONSHIPS THRIVE OR DISSOLVE
WITHOUT OUR KNOWING WHY.
AND SOMEHOW GOODBYE BECAME EASY.


Wait! Let me explain. It really wasn't a good time. I...
