I drop my hat
To a restless wind
This time I'm not gonna chase it again
In a jigsaw dream with soft spoken words

I woke up crying and no one heard
You're looking through me like I never was real
You say you love me but you won't let me feel
So I'm gonna take a chance this time

I'm gonna find myself some place where I can heal
And I'm heading west
Without a sad goodbye
And I'm heading west

I'm like a letter with no address
Just like a book I read
I'm heading west
I said my name

Under my breath
He turned down a twisted road
I won't forget
I'm gonna fly my kite and let out all the string

Hold on to hope, let go everything
I can't stop laughing and it's nothing you said
The altitude of freedom seems to go to my head
And if I fall down on my knees I'm gonna get back up

I'm gonna get back up again
And I'm heading west
Without a sad goodbye
And I'm heading west

I'm like a letter with no address
Just like a book I read
I'm heading west
And I'm heading west...
Just like a book I read...
