Who doesn't know what I'm talking about
Who's never left home who's never struck out
To find a dream and a life of their own
A place in the clouds a foundation of stone
Many precede and many will follow
A young girl's dreams no longer hollow
It takes the shape of a place out west
But what it holds for her she hasn't yet guessed

She needs wide open spaces
Room to make a big mistakes
She needs new faces
She knows the high stakes

She traveled this road as a child
Wide-eyed and grinning she never tired
But now she won't be coming back with the rest
If these are life's lessons, she'll take this test

She needs wide open spaces
Room to make a big mistakes
She needs new faces
She knows the high stakes. She knows the highest stakes.

As her folks drive away her dad yells, "Check the oil!"
Mom stares out the window and says
"I'm leaving my girl."
She says, "It didn't seem like I left long ago
When she stood there and let her own folks go"

She needed wide open spaces
Room to make a big mistakes
She needs new faces
She knows the high stakes
