Fireworks

by The Tragically Hip

{intro/verse}
/ FC FC FC FC / :

If there is a goal that everyone remembers, it was back in old '72
We all squeezed the stick and we all pulled the trigger
And all I can remember is sitting beside you
You said you didn't give a fuck about hockey
And I never saw someone say that before
You held my hand and we walked home the long way
You were loosening my grip on Bobby Orr

Isn't it amazing anything's accomplished
When the little sensation gets in your way
Not one ambition whispering over your shoulder
Isn't it amazing you can do anything

/ C G C FC / :

We hung out together every single moment
Because that what we thought married people do
Complete with the grip of artificial chaos
and believing in the country of me and you
Crisis of faith and crisis in the Kremlin
And yeah, we'd heard all that before
It's winter time, the house is solitude with options
And loosening the grip on a fake cold war

Isn't it amazing what you can accomplish
When you don't let the nation get in your way
Not one ambition whispering over your shoulder
Isn't it amazing you can do anything

Next to your comrades in the national fitness program
Caught in some eternal flexed arm hang
Dropping to the mat in a fit of laughter
Showed no patience, tolerance or restraint

/ G - - - / :

Fireworks exploding in the distance, temporary towers soar
Fireworks emulating heaven, until there are no stars anymore
Fireworks aiming straight at heaven, temporary towers soar
Until there are no stars shining up in heaven, until there are no stars anymore

Isn't it amazing what you can accomplish
When the little sensation gets in your way
No ambition whispering over your shoulder
Isn't it amazing what you can accomplish, eh
This one thing never goes away
I think this one thing is always supposed to stay
This one thing doesn't have to go away
