You wait in the car on the side of the road
will you go and stand awhile,
I wanna know you're there but I wanna be alone

If only for a minute or two,
I wanna see what it feels like to be without you
I wanna feel 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 stared and looked down at the open space,
and a farm house far away

and I wonder about the people who lived in it
and I wonder if they were happy and content
and only 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 doesn't mean I don't love you
It doesn't mean I won't come back and stand beside you

It only means I need a little time
to follow them broken lines
to a place where the wild things grow
to the place where I used to always go

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