West

she left her heart in TN

in that old 66 airstream

a place she never thought she'd leave

wearing his sweater and her heart on its sleeve…

guitar comes in:

her cheeks are tearstained but they're dry

she's as strong as whiskey rye

uses the sunset as her guide

she's headed out west tonight

well damn the dawn

and damn the sky

damn the man who made her cry

wont make the same mistake twice

tank full of hope and what she's saved

in all those hiding places

takes back her pride and her last name

God save the man who stands in her way

damn the memories

damn the lies

damn the devil in his eyes

wont make the same mistake twice

instrumental bridge

she's taking off those rosy shades

trading them in for brighter days

rolling into west LA

the west will be her saving grace

damn the sparkle in his eye

that wasted all her precious time

won't make the same mistake twice

i won't make the same mistake twice
