The Way Out West The Way Out West

Seattle Skies ©Michael Tomlinson
Listen Video
I was an ordinary boy, 'til freedom called me
Freedom called my name
In an unusual voice, making the sound of yellow leaves
Blowing down a blue highway

I loved the thrill of the wind, oh, as early as I can recall
I thought of weather as my friend
Whether sun or snow or rain, I was born to love it all

Now I'm walking under gray Seattle skies
Thinking how I'm going to miss the days gone by
Even if I feel the bite of bitter winter wind
Oh, I vow to not be one for hurrying
I'll take my time and breathe it in

I love the early morning sounds of this earth
All her mating songs
She spreads her loving all around
On the feathers of the wind where they graze against the dawn
And even if you never did ever travel over foreign lands
You still could know the world we're in
By the nature of the wind as she flows against your skin

Now I'm walking under gray Seattle skies
Thinking how I'm going to miss the days gone by
Even if I feel the bite of bitter winter wind
Oh, I vow to not be one for hurrying
I'll take my time and breathe it in

I was looking for the meaning of my life
When I let a little rain get in my eyes
November loosened me and blew me all around
It was somewhere in this city I was found

So I came to love the gray Seattle skies
And I know I'm going to miss the days gone by
Even if I feel the bite of bitter winter wind
Oh, I vow to not be one for hurrying
I'll take my time and breathe it in
I'll breathe it in
