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 wanna be alone

If only for a minute or two
I want to feel 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 leg
I just stood and looked out at the open space
And a farmhouse out a ways

And I wonder about the people who lived in it
And I wonder if they were happy and content

And with many children and a man and a wife
And did she love him and take her hair down at night

If I stray away too far from you
Don't go out and try to find me

It doesn't mean I don't love you
It doesn'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 la la

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