She grew up on the side of the road
Where the church bells ring
And strong love grows
She grew up good
She grew up slow
Like American honey

Free as a weed
Couldn't wait to get going
But wasn't quite ready to...

    Nostalgic thoughts when life is passing and you arranged the pieces of a life that many assessed as teaching moments. It may not be about you but you think of the people you dearly love. And wished them well now.

    I think it's about a girl yearning to be free. To experience a life she never quite known. She leaves the life she knew to become something else that is not quite her. Later on in life, she regrets that decision and wants to get back to the girl she used to be. The person deep inside of her who lay dormant for years.

    I feel that this is about a girl who lived in a small town. She tried to grow up fast but, she never was ready to leave. She had common sense and a wild vibe. Eventually, she grows. And, she wants to go back to an innocent time. There is something calling her back. She wants to go back in time.

    This song is about how the singer wishes she were a kid again when everything was so simple. It describes her childhood in the small town/country/farm and how the world is so crazy she wishes she could go back.
