lyrics

How the West Was Won

the hand that cut this barley, I’d like to know
the pale blue lips that blew the life into this stereo

oh I’d like to know
oh I’d like to know

don’t it feel good
to be understood tonight

you asked me when’s the last time I stared into
your sharp black jeweled eyes,
even then you knew we were through
I didn’t know I didn’t know
then you got up to go

don’t it feel good
don’t it feel right
don’t it feel good
to be understood tonight

do you know how the west was won?
I fixed my speed in the middle lane, turned on the radio

they played that missing take of "jailbreak"
they had to know

don’t it feel good
don’t it feel right
don’t it feel good
to be understood tonight
