heading west lyrics – cyndi lauper

i drop my hat
to a restless wind
this time i’m not gonna chase it again
in a jigsaw dream with soft spoken words
i woke up crying and no one heard
you’re looking through me like i never was real
you say you love me but you won’t let me feel
so i’m gonna take a chance this time
i’m gonna find myself some place where i can heal

and i’m heading west
without a sad goodbye
and i’m heading west
i’m like a letter with no address
just like a book i read
i’m heading west

i said my name
under my breath
he turned down a twisted road
i won’t forget
i’m gonna fly my kite and let out all the string
hold on to hope, let go everything
i can’t stop laughing and it’s nothing you said
the alt*tude of freedom seems to go to my head
and if i fall down on my knees i’m gonna get back up
i’m gonna get back up again

and i’m heading west
without a sad goodbye
and i’m heading west
i’m like a letter with no address
just like a book i read
i’m heading west

and i’m heading west…
just like a book i read…
