You say you want space
A little time on your own
To clear out your mind
Really unwind, and just be alone

Things are moving too fast, going too far
Getting too close, too close to the heart

And now you want space
Well I'll give you space
Plenty of space, all the space that you need

Does it make you feel free, make you feel young?
How does it feel not to need anyone?
You say you want space
Well I'll give you space

You need your own bed
You need your own room
Well how 'bout an island?
I bet you could find one
On the dark side of the moon

Then you won't have to deal with anything real
Cause I won't be here, I'll just disappear

And you can have space
Honey, I'll give you space
Plenty of space, all the space that you need

Does it make you feel free, make you feel young?
How does it feel not to need anyone?
Oh, you say you want space
Baby, you can have space
I'll give you

I left Lawrence, Kansas,
At the age of seventeen,
To chase down my own version,
Of the American dream..
Cowboy boots, a tie-dye dress,
In Mom's ol' mini-van:
If a girl like me can do it, sister,
I believe anybody can.

Oh, the land, she is my mother;
And freedom is my father.
Yeah, and I am one of many,
Strong, proud and beautiful American daughters.

I got married way too young:
No-one's fault but mine.
An' it hurts when you grow,
But you learn as you go that nothin' heals like time.
I found my Faith in God,
An' my first apartment on my own.
An' now no matter where I ever go,
I know I'll never be alone.

'Cause the land, she is my mother;
Yes, and freedom,
(Freedom.)
Is my father.
Yeah, and I am one of many,
Strong, proud and beautiful American daughters.

Resurrection Bay, Alaska;
The Flinthills Roll in Kansa;
Time Square, New York City;
The Mississippi delta;
Anywhere in Texas;
Redstone, Colorado;
Sedona, Arizona;
The PCA to California;
It's all home sweet home.

'Cause the land, she is my mother;
Yes, and freedom,
(Freedom.)
Is my father.
Yeah, and I am one of many,
Strong, proud and beautiful;
We're all strong, proud and beautiful;
Yeah, we're strong, proud and beautiful American daughters.
Strong, proud American daughters, yeah.

It's the first time that I've been here
Since I was here with him
I remember all the wild flowers
Wavin' in the wind
Life was an undiscovered river
I was jumpin' in
Head first

It was sink or swim
Do or die
Sneaking out on summer nights
Stealing wine from my pa
The thrill of not gettin' caught
And now and then
I miss those days
But coming back to this place
I realize, it ain't him I miss
It's that young girl, wide eyed,
First love, one time
Innocence
Yeah

We ran off to the cornfield
Just outside the county fair
There were butterflies in my stomach
And fireflies in the air
He tried hard not to show it
Oh, but he was just as scared
As me

And it was sink or swim
Do or die
Sneaking out on summer nights
Stealing wine from my pa
The thrill of not gettin' caught
And now and then
I miss those days
But coming back to this place
I realize, it ain't him I miss
It's that young girl, wide eyed,
First love, one time
Innocence
Yeah

And coming here
Has made me come to this
The one thing I can't get back
Is the one thing I miss
Yeah

And it was breaking rules
Flying blind
What you see through younger eyes
It wasn't what I thought it was
Man, I swore he was the one
And now and then
I miss those days
But coming back to this place
I realize, it ain't him I miss
It's that young girl, wide eyed,
First love, one time
Innocence
Yeah

It's that young girl, wide eyed,
First love, one time
Innocence
Yeah

It's that innocence
Mmmm

. . .


Buckle up, baby
Two, three, four

Well, it's on again, off again
Maybe we should just be friends
Breakin' up, makin' up
Call your momma, all the drama

Her fault, your fault, restaurant an' make a scene
Red dress, make up sex, dirty baby talk
Talkin' ring, diamond rings
Take it all with a smile, go for miles an' miles

Li-li-li-life is a journey, twistin' an' turnin'
Can't ever say what'll happen next
You're thinkin' it's somethin' but you ain't seen nothin'
Life is a journey but love, love, love, love is a trip
It's a trip, yeah

Now you buy a house, buy a couch
Think you got it figured out
Six months, one night
Then you had your first fight

Your fault, her fault, restaurant an' make a scene
Red dress, make up sex
Now you're talkin' baby things in the spring
Go out with a smile and a Walmart style

Li-li-li-life is a journey, twistin' an' turnin'
Can't ever say what'll happen next
You're thinkin' it's somethin' but you ain't seen nothin'
Life is a journey but love, love, love, love is a trip
It's a trip, yeah, it's a trip

All the lovin', oh, an' the huggin'
You're cussin', fussin'
Yeah, you know you're lovin' it

Life is a journey, twistin' an' turnin'
Can't ever say what'll happen next
You're thinkin' it's somethin' but you ain't seen nothin'
Life is a journey but

Li-li-li-life is a journey, twistin' an' turnin'
Can't ever say what'll happen next
You're thinkin' it's somethin' but you ain't seen nothin'
Life is a journey but love, love, love, love is a trip
It's a trip, yeah, wadin' down Mississip'
(Love, love, love, love is a trip)

It's a trip
(It's a trip)
Buckle-up, baby
(Love is a trip)
It's a kiss from St. Louis red lips

C'mon baby
(Love is a trip, it's a trip)
It's a trip, yeah
(Love is a trip, it's a trip)
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah

She was precious like a flower
She grew wild, wild but innocent
Perfect prayer in a desperate hour
She was everything, beautiful, different

Stupid boy
You can't fence that in
Stupid boy
It's like holding back the wind

[chorus]
She laid her heart
And soul right in your hands
And you stole her every dream
and crushed her plans
She never knew
She had a choice
That's what happens
When the only voice she hears
Is telling her she can't
Stupid boy
Stupid boy

So, what made you think
You could take a life
And just push it, push it around
I guess to build youself up so high
you had to take her, break her down

[chorus]
She laid her heart
And soul right in your hands
And you stole her every dream
And you crushed her plans
She never knew
She had a choice
That's what happens
When the only voice she hears
Is telling her she can't
Stupid boy

Ah you always had to be right
And now you lost the only thing
That ever made you feel alive

[chorus]
She laid her heart
And soul right in your hands
And you stole her every dream
And you crushed her plans
She never knew
She had a choice
That's what happens
When the only voice she hears
Is telling her she can't
Stupid boy

Ah it's the same old, same old
Stupid boy

It Took a while for her to figure out
She could run and when she did
She was long gone, long gone

Yeah

Stupid boy

You're just a stupid boy
You'll never get it right
