go let the west wind blow
she's got a way of letting dreams
go passing on
while they are real
I don't wanna make you blue
but I want the best of rain and tears
and everything for you
I won't put you on
so calm down

never get wasted to the moon
I don't care
where the tears go
never get wasted to my heart
so don't go

and don't stop runnin' into the blue
I guess you gotta try and find a point of view
I won't let you down
so don't go

never get wasted to the moon
I don't care
where the tears go
she's got a way into my heart
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know why
I don't know why
I don't know why
