I've been thinking, about a west bound beauty I knew.
And I've been wishing, I hadn't done those things I did so, long ago.
It could take all the pain I caused you to drag me from these clouds but baby,
There ain't no way to turn the past around.
No not now, but anyhow.
There's no reason, you shouldn't do me like I done you.
And there's no breathing, when those claws of yours have left my throat.
If only you could see, how these open wounds have turned to honesty,
But darling, I lost my mind when you lost belief.
And New Yorks calling me but the winters are so damn cold.
And California dreams could leave you lonely without a soul.
Where East and West will meet, is where I'll lay my head to sleep, but ain't no rest gonna find me away from her. Open arms. Where I'm safe from harm.
I've been praying, that a change would take my heart.
And I've been begging, the gods above to let your body fill my arms.
But I can see your thoughts,
The shattered bones and hospital cots,
but love, I'll take every fall if it means your trust.
Chorus 2: The Angels call my name but none of them could hold a light to you.
My lungs and liver waste away amidst the shields of smoke and alcohol.
There's not a thing that I'll regret once I, forget your face but that smile of yours, will live beyond my grave. If my soul could sing. That's my saving grace.
