Heading West

When we split, I set out
Over a desert landscape
And I started chasing the sun
Across the widest river
Leaving your memory on the other side
Nothing on my mind but to run

I lost my map
It was weighing me down
And I don’t need it anyway
What I need is time
To catch that blazing sun
So after it, I head west today

I think I knew the way
Once upon a time
Over these wooded mountains
The dream was so much clearer
Just before I set out after it
But now all these trees have me surrounded

The air is cooler now
My tank is almost empty
I see the Pacific through the rain
And it seems the sun has slipped away
Now I’m as far west as I can go
Going on means I’ll be east again.
