Lucinda Williams – West lyrics

Come out West and see
The best it'll ever be
I know you won't stay permanently
But come out West and see

Climb up on a rock
And stretch out in the sun
And close my eyes and let
My imagination run

I'm tracing your initials in the shining sand
I'm counting out the days til I see you again

Who knows what the future holds
Or where the cards may fall
But if you don't come out West and see
You'll never know at all.

I look off in the distance
Blow a kiss and wave
A thousand miles between us
Disappear some day.

I watch as all the starlings
Fly in from the North
The beating of the winds
Echoes the beating of my heart

I sleep out in the desert
Under the stars above
And keep making an effort
To wander in love.

Who knows what the future holds
Or where the cards may fall
But if you don't come out West and see
You'll never know at all.

Come out West and see
The best it'll could be
I know you won't stay permanently
But come out West and see
