Track Name: The Golden West
Tear me away from this mess of a day
I'm gonna leave through my window, fly away
I'll build a ladder to the sky, gonna leave this all behind
Forget every worried word I've said, just forget

And bury all we put to rest in the golden west, in the golden west
Let's bury all we put to rest in the golden west, in the golden west

I'll watch the tides turn from above
Nothing can reach us here, my love
Beyond every turn we took to run
We were always scared of leaving
One eye watching our own backs
Let's bury our mistakes and leave no trace under the sun

And bury all we put to rest in the golden west, in the golden west
Let's bury all we put to rest in the golden west, in the golden west

Every answer that I never wanted
Every single question I should not have asked
All the dreams that should have never been thwarted
All the love that didn't last

Let's bury all we put to rest in the golden west, in the golden west
Let's bury all we put to rest in the golden west, in the golden west
