The song is used as a soundtrack in the TV show Roswell, when Michael is kicked out of his house and comes to Maria's bedroom to find some comfort. The episode is called Independence Day....
She could climb from her window over to my house
We would hide up in my room
Where she'd feel safe for awhile
And keep the windows open for the blue skies she'd say
Even when it rained
She kept her ears wide
In case her parents ever called her name
And she owned and told me the truth when
We were on the phone
She'd like to change her name
She'd like to think of stories about places she'd never been
She knows, she made me believe
I loved everything about her and she was in love with me
But she had to go

Mother was too good for her
Daddy wasn't ever good enough
Through the years of fighting
He never noticed how much she grew up
When I last saw her at the corner of two streets
She looked tired
Like she might do something right
She got a job, saves money on a car she never loved
She never looked back
And I always thought that I could be the one
To make her stay
She liked to stay out late, drinking and acting crazy
She was just waiting
I tried to hold her hand
I understood but I could never understand
Why she had to go

I heard her mother's doing her good
I heard her father died last spring
They sold her house last week
And no she still hasn't heard a thing
But I don't think that I'll be the one to tell her
She'd like to change her name
She'd like to think of stories of places she'd never been
She liked to stay out late, telling me stories
About people and places she'd never been
I tried to hold her hand
And I understood what I could never understand
