C             B           Am          G
She draws a line in the sand with her feet
                C       B             Am            G
And there's an old man walking in the middle of the street
            C       B             Am          G
And as the sun goes down well she calls me a fool, you know
                 C           B         Am     G
'Cause I'm still sitting here in my room
Am             Em          F            G
And I peak out my window or I close my eyes
        F                B    C
Saying goodnight to the Westside

C B Am G

Well the sun feels warm on my face these days

And I'm slightly removed from the smog of L.A.

But I'm still searching those things I just can't see

Like how a beautiful face can hide her life from me

Take a deep breath as she asks for a ride

Saying goodnight to the Westside

Well I come home late in the evening time

And I try to ride down to the beach and I stare up at the sky

And I lie on the Venice sand

And I think about her and I think about all of them, all of them

Sometimes I'm thinking about all of them

And I roll my windows down

And let the air flow all around me

As I start to drive

Say goodnight to the Westside

To the Westside
