lyrics: 

Verse 1:
Wasted hours among the Dogwood flowers,
the misty midnight smells of home
with hints of Jasmine.

Misspent youth, getting long in the tooth,
and I’m still rolling like a stone.
Can you imagine?
Can you imagine?

Verse 2:
Restless again. Remember when
you said you’d meet me in the dawn
at the station?

Engine moans dulcet tones
with you beside me in the dark.
Jubilation!
Jubilation!

Verse 3:
Sound of the surf, end of the earth,
I sink my toes into the sand;
a simple gesture.

Far from home, fate unknown,
and if you take me by the hand
we’ll go Wester.
Draw me Wester,
ever Wester.
