Lyrics:N. was somewhere years ago and cold:
ice locked the people's hearts and made them old.
S.
was birth to pleasant lands, but dry:
I walked the waters' depths and played my mind.
E.
was dawn, coming alive in the golden sun:
the winds came gently, several heads became
one
in the summertime, though august people sneered...
we were at peace, and we
cheered

We walked along, sometimes hand in hand,
between the thin lines marking sea
and sand;
smiling very peacefully,
we began to notice that we could be free,
and we
moved together to the West.

W. is where all days shall someday end;
where the
colours turn from grey to gold,
and you can be with the friends.
And light flakes the
golden clouds above:
West is Mike and Susie,
West is where I love.

There we
shall spend the final days of our lives...
tell the same old stories: well, at least we
tried.
So into the West, smiles on our faces, we'll go;
oh! yes, and our apologies to
those
who'll never really know the Way....

We're refugees, walking away from the
life we've known and loved...
nothing to do nor say, nowhere to stay; now we are
alone.
We're refugees, carrying all we own in brown bags, tied up with string...
nothing
to think, it doesn't mean a thing, but we'll be happy on our own.

West is Mike and
Susie;
West is Mike and Susie;
West is where I love,
West is refugees' home.
