Slowly In The West

This song is by Boz Scaggs and appears on the album My Time (1972).

There was nobody left
Just a burnout nothing had been done
It was hard to believe
We had started out that morning having fun

But with people always running into walls
Like they didn't even see them there at all
Got so tangled
Thanks again for your moonlight generousness
Left me strangling
Slowly in the west

Don't worry mama your sweet daughter
Who lived inside this mess
Though I tried to protect her
Cool her and ease her restlessness

Grew so used to the sound of her alarm
Didn't mean to do her any harm
Got so tangled
Please forgive me for my constant uselessness
Got me strangled
Slowly in the west

Let me loose let me hear the sound of someone
Through this haze
Take me there I don't care anywhere it's all the same

So honey don't hold your breath
You may never get to feel this way again
Who was crying when she left
Lying to you now about the pain
Our baby can't be gotten back no
It was an end to her madness I've been told

Got so tangled
Please just show me to the ending
Forget the rest
Got me strangled
Slowly in the west
