Independence (The Band Perry)

Patient anticipation Up 'til now I be hurry up and waiting At a bus stop in independence licking an ice cream cone I've been kicking I've been scheming This is as close as I've been to leaving Five blocks away, a stone's throw away from home But I'm as good as gone I gotta get gone, gone, gone Shooting like a gun, a gun, a gun Skipping like stone, stone, stone Far as I can run to where freedom is free There's a road like a long gray ribbon far as I can see And it's pulling independence out of me Emancipation or paper chasing Leaving with question marks and Momma's blessing I put her picture in my pocket along with her rosary Some say I'm crazy, a little loco And most of my friends will live and die in this zip code It might be for me but until I go How am I supposed to know? I gotta get gone, gone, gone Shooting like a gun, a gun, a gun Skipping like stone, stone, stone Far as I can run to where freedom is free There's a road like a long gray ribbon far as I can see I'm busting out of independence Independence is busting out of me I'm busting out of independence Independence is busting out of me I gotta get gone, gone, gone Shooting like a gun, a gun, a gun Skipping like stone, stone, stone Far as I can run to where freedom is free There's a road like a long gray ribbon far as I can see There's a road like a long gray ribbon far as I can see And it's pulling independence out of me. Independence.
