The world is a hungry place and it's never satisfied
You're leaving home, on the run, your mama, she was right
Home was a crowded space but it sometimes gratified
Look around, freedom found, now you've gone

you don't belong to me, I've just gotta let you go
You don't belong to me, I've just gotta let you know

Your life is a precious thing, you can never be denied
You need a job, a place to live, you couldn't help but try
Home was a crowded place and it sometimes satisfied
Turn around, freedom found, now you've gone

Baby, turn back, don't ride the highway
Baby, good luck when you do it your way

You don't belong to me, I've just gotta let you go
You don't belong to me, I've just gotta let you go
I don't belong to you, it's only an ocean away
You don't belong to me, I've just gotta let you go

When there's nothing in your way and all of it burns inside
Reaching out on your own, reaching out, you're reaching out on your own

Lust is a hungry place and it's never satisfied
You need to find the gift of love that comes from deep inside
Your heart is a special place and you're always there, I'm always there for you

You don't belong to me, I've just gotta let you go
You don't belong to me, I've just gotta let you know
I don't belong to you, it's only an ocean away
You don't belong to me, I've just gotta let you go

Baby, turn back, don't ride the highway
Baby, good luck when you do it your way

    General CommentI was reluctant to listen to any INXS after Michael Hutchence died but I really like this song, it has the true INXS feel.
    I think that the meaning is pretty clear
