The Chicks

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 her 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 her big mistakes She needs new faces She knows the high stakes She knows the high stakes And as her folks drive away, her dad yells, "Check the oil!" Mom stares out the window and says, "I'm leavin′ my girl" She said, "It didn't seem like that long ago" When she stood there and let her own folks know She needed wide open spaces Room to make her big mistakes She needs new faces She knows the high stakes She knows the highest stakes She knows the highest stakes (wide open spaces) She knows the highest stakes She knows the highest stakes (wide open spaces)
