"Indiana Wants Me" as written by and R. Dean Taylor....
Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
I wish I had you to talk to

If a man ever needed dyin', he did
No one had the right to say what he said about you
And it's so cold and lonely here without you
Out there the law's a comin'
I'm gettin' so tired of runnin'

Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
I wish I had you to talk to

It hurts to see the man that I've become
And to know I'll never see the morning sunshine on the land
I'll never see your smiling face or touch your hand
If just once more I could see you, our home and our little baby

Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there

I wish I had you to talk to

I hope this letter finds its way to you
Forgive me, love, for the shame I put you through and all the tears
Hang on, love, to the memories of those happy years
Red lights are flashin' around me
Yeah, love it looks like they found me

Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
I wish I had you to talk to
Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there
Indiana wants me, Lord, I can't go back there

    General CommentThe song is basically a goodbye letter to his love that was written while the Indiana State Police are surrounding his home calling for him to come out of the house. He is telling her how truly sorry he is that he put her through all this and that she doesn't deserve this kind of treatment, and he is apologizing for everything.

    He could either escape and be on the run from the law once again or he will go down in a blaze of glory, dying before he gets another chance to see her in person and make things right again.
