Phair, Liz - Go West Lyrics




Safe on
The interstate
New York
Is three thousand miles away
And I'm not looking forward to following through
But it's better than always running back into you
I've closed my eyes and my bank account
And gone west, young man

Take off
The parking brake
Go coasting
Into a different state
And I'm not looking forward to missing you
But I must have something better to do
I've got to tear my life apart
And go west, young man

And it feels like I've got something to prove,
But in some ways it's just something to do
My friend's turn me around and say
You go west, young man

Stepping
Down off my platform shoes
Sixty-
Nine in the afternoon
And I'm waiting for someone in the know
Like Pirnir tells me on the radio ed. note: this is the way it's spelled
on the lyrics sheet. It may be "Pirner," as in Dave
Says take it from someone who's been there before
You go west, young man

And I'm looking for somebody to do
My thinking for me 'till I come through
The state-line highway sign says
You have gone west, young man
And it feels like I've got something to prove
But in some ways it's just something to do
The state-line highway sign says
You have gone west, young man

    just occurred to me just how brilliant this lp is.

  4. Richard Wilson

    I bought this CD when it first came out, but had forgotten this song until it was featured on an episode of The Good Wife I watched this weekend. Such a great tune.

    Liz is the best

    Seriously! One of the best songs, ever. At least for the 18 yr girrrrrl I was in 1994. 2018-I still feel the same.
