side of the road


off her third album lucinda williams released in 1988

you wait in the car on the side of the road
let me go and stand awhile
i want to know you're there, but i want to be alone
if only for a minute or two
i want to see what it feels like to be without you
i want to know 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 farm house out aways
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 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 used to always go
