If you love it, set it free

Side Of The Road
Ben Folds

You wait in the car on the side of the road
Let me go and stand a while
I wanna know you’re there
But I wanna be alone
If only for a minute or two
I wanna see what it feels like to be without you
I wanna feel the touch of my own skin
Against the sun
Against the wind

I walked out in a field, the grass was high
It brushed against my legs
I just stood and looked out at the open space
And a farmhouse out a ways
And I wondered about the people who lived in it
And I wondered if they were happy and content
Were there children and a man and a wife?
Did she love him and take her hair down at night?

If I stray away too far from you
Don’t go and try to find me
It doesn’t mean that I don’t love you
It doesn’t mean I won’t come back and stay beside you
It only means I need a little time
To follow that unbroken line
To a place where the wild things grow
To a place where I always used to go

If only for a minute or two
I wanna see what it feels like to be without you
I wanna know the touch of my own skin
Against the sun
Against the wind
