Lyrics
Oh, no malice does exist in these words I am now writing
Although one might catch the faintest glance at sorrow
I'm but trying hard to grasp all these fragments as they're passing
Piece the puzzle now before the trail grows cold

And I'm not asking for the answers in mathematical equations
To be coldly calculated by unbiased hands
For in truth, I am so stricken and I care only to forever dance
Which proves I am the better broken half
Oh and I am but the bitter better half

And my callous speculations, they leave no room for calm or reason
I have placed myself in altars that are hollow
So adept at finding weakness
I smell fear and close my fists
Unaware the stench I'm smelling is my own
So yeah, you left me and I'm bitter
And my pride is shocked and raw
For I believe I will be changing roads no more
I know that life is full of dead ends
But I saw us as a highway
Ever stretching on from coast to golden coast
Oh, but now instead I'm singin':

Go West, Emily
Grab your boots and find yourself somewhere
I'll find another lover in the East
I said go West, Emily
Yeah, you know you've got my blessing
But you can't expect these eyes of mine
To watch you leave

So, with no malice I'll begin just once more to tell our story
Though the ending I may never hope to know
You were a sweet and sound companion
Though our paths led us apart
And I may never sleep so soundly as I did while in your arms
Now all I ask is you remember who you loved and who you lost
Please don't bury me in silence or in blackest shroud of thought
Don't pretend that what we had was any less than what it was
For I will not soon be forgetting the reasons why we fought so hard to make it work

But go West, Emily
Grab your boots and find yourself somewhere
I'll find another lover in the East
I said go west, Emily
You know you've got my blessing
But you can't expect these eyes of mine
To watch you...

Go West, Emily
Grab your boots and find yourself somewhere
I'll find another lover in the East
I said go west, Emily
You know you've got my blessing
But you can't expect these eyes of mine
To watch you leave
