lyrics

In the sun,
Everybody feels alright,
Everybody sees the light.
My skin melts to bones.

By the stars,
Everybody knows the night,
Everybody sleeps so tight,
Sandman’s throwing stones.

But I could use some western skies tonight
To help me feel alright
Not so alone.

In New York,
Everyone’s a burning sun,
The only one who gets things done.
I’m stuck underground.

But I could use some western skies tonight
To help me feel alright
Not so alone.
'Cause I know all about the western skies
And how they’ll burn your eyes
Just with the dawn.

If it’s a case of grass is greener,
Pennies drowned by fountain dreamers,
Or just some wasted discontent
Someday you’re gonna wake up,
wonder where your good times went.

I could use some western skies tonight
To help me feel alright
Not so alone.
'Cause I know all about the western skies
And how they’ll burn your eyes
Just with the dawn.

Someday you're gonna wake up.
