Kansas

So you say you wanna be away from me 

dye your hair, change your name, hop a bus 

and be safe from me 

And you say you won't play the game for me 

and you say you won't change your name for me 

And you say Kansas is the place to be 

On those plains now you could be free 

 

What did you hear in the wind 

the soft caress of that old friend 

Did those storms cloud your eyes 

Underneath that Kansas sky 

 

So now you've ran away, past me 

moved on, grown up, grown out and away from me 

And things don't feel the same for me 

And the wind calls out your name to me 

And you're in Kansas where I ought to be 

And the wind calls out your name like me 

 

What did you hear in the wind  

the soft caress of that old friend  

Did those storms cloud your eyes  

Underneath that Kansas sky 

 

Kansas, ten thousand miles away from me 

But I feel your arms encircle me 

If I had an airplane or a time machine 

I'd be in Kansas and you wouldn't run away from me
