"The hospital asked should the body be cast
Before I say goodbye, my star in the sky
Such a funny thought to wrap you up in cloth
Do you find it all right, my dragonfly?"

What could I have said to raise you from the dead?
Oh could I be the sky on the Fourth of July?
one of the most special lyrics i have ever heard..never to be forgotten. thank you Sylvie,you're a star on this site....ps-the date is not important to me....
Sufjan Stevens speaks universal truths in Fourth of July, and the song's aching, looping refrain is stuck in my head.
Intimate, melancholic, tender, but utterly heartbreaking - my favourite track from one of the best albums I've heard this, or any other year.
