lyrics

I'm gonna grab my keys and drive as far as I can make it in my car, got an empty feeling in my chest, so I'm gonna head west
As far as I have heard, the sun's always bright, with clear skies I could use for a while, a chance, a choice, I've made up my mind
I'm gonna head west and see what I find
Foot to the floor from the town I abhor I can't take any more
I'm hopeful about the direction and route, things that are in store
I wave goodbye to everyone, not a hand held high to this broken son

Well my river's run dry, I could use a change, cuz life has really got me drained, so I will head for better days, and if I like it more there, well I guess I will stay
I would love new scenery, and the west coast never sounded so good to me

Well I'm not the type to express my pains, but this shadow of mine's the only one who stays, I feel so alone and I suppose that's fine, cuz I messed it all up with every friend of mine
And oh Cali, oh Cali, save me some sand, my mind's set on your beaches grand, Arizona, Arizona, just heading through
Nevada is closing this song I'm composing is for oceans blue

Well my river's run dry, I could use a change, cuz life has really got me drained, so I will head for better days, and if I like it more there, well I guess I will stay
I need love, any takers out there? The west coast never sounded so good to me

The blinker keeps the tempo as I turn from disaster
The angel on my shoulder helps me move a bit faster
The demons in the rear view, for my soul they are after
But I'm moving out west to start a new chapter

Well my river's run dry, I could use a change, cuz life has really got me drained, so I will head for better days, and if I like it more there, well I guess I will stay
I'm in love, but he's in love with you too
And the west coast never sounded much better to me
