wide open spaces

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 highest 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 highest stakes
she knows the highest stakes

This is kind of where I am in my life. Basically, this song could be a theme song for what I am doing in my life, why I am living in Provo instead of at home, even though I don't have a job yet and the balance in my bank account continues to drop to an all-time low. I'm ready to live life and see if I can make it on my own. It may be an epic fail, but I'm still hoping for things to work out. And I know they will work out, just probably not in the way that I am expecting.

Madeleine! Glad you're back in the bloggy world! I love this song, good for you for forging ahead! Good luck with the job...definitely not a good market right now! Call me and we'll play! I can't find a job either so I am pretty free :)
