Who doesn't know what I'm talking about
Who's never left home, 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 dream no longer hollow
It takes the shape of a place out west
But what it holds for her, she hasn't yet guessed

CHORUS:
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

CHORUS:
She needs wide open spaces
Room to make her big mistakes
She needs new faces
She knows the high 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

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