Charted: 27
  • I said, I wanna touch the earth
    I wanna break it in my hands
    I wanna grow something wild and unruly
    I wanna sleep on the hard ground
    In the comfort of your arms
    On a pillow of blue bonnets
    In a blanket made of stars
    Oh, it sounds good to me

    I said, cowboy take me away
    Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
    Set me free, oh, I pray
    Closer to heaven above and closer to you
    Closer to you

    I wanna walk and not run
    I wanna skip and not fall
    I wanna look at the horizon and not see a building standing tall
    I wanna be the only one for miles and miles
    Except for maybe you and your simple smile
    Oh, it sounds good to me
    Yes, it sounds so good to me

    Cowboy take me away
    Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
    Set me free, oh, I pray
    Closer to heaven above and closer to you
    Closer to you

    I said, I wanna touch the earth
    I wanna break it in my hands
    I wanna grow something wild and unruly
    Oh, it sounds so good to me

    Cowboy take me away
    Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
    Set me free, oh, I pray
    Closer to heaven above and closer to you
    Closer to you
    Closer to you
    Cowboy take me away
    Closer to you Writer/s: Martha Maguire, Marcus Hummon
