Well I've been running from something
Twenty years in my car
Down a road that's leading me nowhere
Yeah we drive through the farmland
No one knows where we're from
Could I kiss you and make you a queen?
Or something in between

Do you want to see it?
The place where I was free?
'Cause in my mind I need it
But you're nowhere near to me

Move to New York City
Take your woman by the hand
Leave her there with your things on the doorstep
And there's no way around it
Could this be our last dance?
So fall asleep with the tv, darling
I'll be back again

Do you want to see it?
The place where I am free?
'Cause in my mind I've been there
And there's no one here but me

In the morning it'll find you
Let the light shine away
Down a road that's leading me nowhere
And there's no way around it
Could this be our last dance?
Just fall asleep with the tv, darling
I'll be back again
I'll be back again

    I think it could also be talking about how he sometimes needs to just get away from himself and the problems and restrictions of the world and that there is a special place he goes to in order to feel free, but that he always returns to the life he leaves behind.

    It's talking about how he has to go do something and he'll leave his stuff but he'll be back again. He just wants her to know when he leaves it wont be for ever.
