You wait in the car
On the side of the road
Let me go and stand a while
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 leave without you
I want to feel the touch of my own skin
Against the sun
Against the wind

I walked out in a field
The grass was high and it brushed against my legs
I just stood and looked out at the open space
At a farm outside a little ways

And I wondered about the people who lived in it
And I wondered if they were happy and content
Were there children and a man and a wife
And did she love him and take her hair down at night

If I stray to far from you
Don't go and try to find me
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
And don't mean that I won't come back
And stay beside you

It only means that I need a little time
To follow that unbroken line
To a place where the wild things grow
To a place where I always used to go

If only for a minute or two
I want to see what it feels like
To leave without you
I want to feel the touch of my own skin
Against the sun
Against the wind
