my lyricsbox
You wait in the car
On the side of the road
Let me go and stand awhile
I want to know you're there, but I want to be alone
If only for a minute or two
I want to see what it feels like to be without you
I want to know the touch of my own skin
Against the sun, against the wind

I walked out in a field:
The grass was high, it brushed against my legs
I just stood and looked out at the open space
And a farmhouse out a-ways
And I wondered about the people who live there
And I wondered if they were happy and content
Were there children and a man and a wife?
Did she love him and take her hair down at night?

If I stray away too far from you
Don't go and try to find me
It don't mean I don't love you
It don't mean I won't come back and stay beside you
It only means I need a little time
To follow that unbroken line
To a place where the wild things grow
To a place where I used to always go

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la
La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la

If only for a minute or two
I want to see what it feels like to be without you
I want to know the touch of my own skin
Against the sun, against the wind
