Melissa Etheridge - Indiana lyrics

She came to this world on a cold night
Papa turned his head and said:
"I don't believe she's mine"
Single momma raised her in a place
Where you can look but never touch
"'Cause we don't have enough"
"Don't let your hopes get high
'Cause girls like you can't fly"

Oh, the long nights
In the small room
With the big dreams
Oh, Indiana
You're only dying here
And they don't understand

Yeah, it's a tough road
But you start slow
And before you know it
You're not alone
Looking for a place called home
Anywhere
Oh, Indiana

Oh...

She tended bar in New York City
(Indiana)
People turned their heads and said:
"Baby, you sure look fine"
They put her on TV and then
They told her: "You're gonna be a star"
"You can go so far"
"Let your hopes get high
'Cause girls like you can fly"

And the long nights
In the small room
With the big dreams
Oh, Indiana
You're only dying here
And they don't understand

Yeah, it's a tough road
But you start slow
And before you know it
You're not alone
Looking for a place called home
Anywhere
Oh, Indiana

Those big dreams
Are flying machines
And they'll take you
Wherever you want to go
Oh, and sometimes you find
That what's real is inside
You don't have to go away
To find your way home
Oh, Indiana

She turned around and she stopped running
She saw that fame was never
The answer to her prayers
She found that answer in her children
When she takes them to a place
Where they can have so much
She lets their hopes get high
'Cause anyone, anyone can fly

And in the long nighs
In the small room
With the big dreams
Oh, Indiana
You're only dying here
And they don't understand

Yeah, it's a tough road
But you start slow
And before you know it
You're not alone
Looking for a place called home
Anywhere
Oh, Indiana

Oh... she's going back
Oh... oh...
Ah... oh... oh...
Oh... ah... oh...
Oh... hey... oh...
Oh... hey... oh...
Oh...
