It's a big world
and you're such a little girl
with your heart in trees
all I've got is mud on my knees
from praying for you to change
your mind and come back home
it's all that I do
when I see a tree I think it was me
that you couldn't change

I wanted more than you could give.
I wanted more than how we lived.
I wanted more than you could give.
I wanted more than how we lived.

Well you're a skylark
with your head up in the clouds
you hop from tree to tree
and you never touch the ground
'cause you know you'll find me, alone
waiting for you to fall
with your tired wings, ashamed
that you ever thought you could be
so restless and free

I wanted more than you could give.
I wanted more than how we lived.
I wanted more than you could give.
I wanted more than how we lived.

You know I'm looking for you,
and I'm looking 'cause it's love.
I know you're running from me,
are you running just because...
you can run?
