Independence Day

Lyrics

Well she seemed all right by dawn's early light
Though she looked a little worried and weak.
She tried to pretend he wasn't drinkin' again
But daddy'd left the proof on her cheek.

It's Independence Day!!!
Martina really brings it when she sings

@froydenn: We ALL do! God loves us all enough to die in the most painful way possible so that we could go to heaven instead of to hell when we die. Not everyone has a human who will die for them, but everyone has God- if they accept it.
Let Freedom ring!!
Martina!!!!! ! ! #kaylampark just saying I like Carrie underwood and all but Martina rocked it!!!!!!
Oh, gosh. Just like me and my (bad word I can't put down, it starts with an f) dad.

I just always hirt for the child... sent off only to return to discover that mom gained the childs independence by going down and back up in flames with the abusive bassturd (yes I know how to spell it right) who'd already stolen her life and hope and by making that sacrifice preserving it all with her daughter. Mom loved you enough to die to protect you. Wow! How many of us have somebody who would die for our happiness?
Sum one had to some times it takes a traedgy to set us free from bondage

my independence was 6/7/86 when i left my ex and took my two babies and left for good due to domestic violence thank you for the beautiful song that gave me the strength to get me and them out before it was to late thank you Martina from me and the boys
I believe it's talking about her ( the mom) using the 4th of July as her own Independence day. It's the day she freed herself & her daugher from the abusive father. At least that the way I see it.

like this song
this is a beautiful song and mrs. mcbride has a powerful voice. @vlynn, why then does the song reference the 4th of july?
this song as a message that should be listen to
vlynn2
They play this song on conservative radio here between commericials , I assume to display patriotic music. I wish they would listen to the lyrics, it's not about US Independence , its about freedom from domestic violence!!!!

this song is very encouraging in todays economy. I think this song is slightly over-played, but it's message is still important to think about. . .
