  • She said goodbye to her parents' house
    Kissed her Daddy while her mama cried
    Boarded a train like a carousel
    She hummed the song that the ice cream man played when he drove by
    Oh my
    My
    My
    She loves Ohio in the summertime

    White picket fences offer no defenses
    And the children laugh in the streets but that's not all she needs

    Says, "There's a great big world out there and I wanna see it
    There's a great big world out there and there's a place for me in it
    Though I'll miss my mother and the friends I know
    The light burns out if you wait too long
    There's a great big world I see and it's waiting out there for me"

    She hits the city with half a tank
    In a car she bought from a ring she pawned
    She spent the summer by happenstance
    There was a boy who could read her thoughts with his deep brown eyes
    Oh my
    My
    My
    But when he'd drink he was a different kind

    Though white picket fences shook her defenses
    And children danced in her dreams
    That's not all she needs

    Says, "There's a great big world out there and I wanna see it
    There's a great big world out there and there's a place for me in it
    Though I'll miss my mother and the friends I know
    The light burns out if you wait too long
    There's a great big world I see and it's waiting out there for me"

    I've never felt so alone
    I've never felt so alive
    I've never been so sure I could learn to fly

    I've never felt so alone
    I've never felt so alive
    I've never been so sure I could learn to fly

    Inside her wallet's a photograph
    Of the place she's from and the ones she loves

    But, "There's a great big world out there and I wanna see it
    There's a great big world out there and there's a place for me in it
    Though I'll miss my mother and the friends I know
    The light burns out if you wait too long
    There's a great big world I see and it's waiting out there for me"

    I've never felt so alone
    I've never felt so alive
    I've never been so sure I could learn to fly

    I've never felt so alone
    I've never felt so alive
    I've never been so sure I could learn to fly
