Drive through nights on empty roads
Hoping the clubs promote our show
Wasting days in endless naps
Find new ways to fill the gaps

Another word game with the band
Another losing rummy hand
Another night slept in the van

I'm forced awake again in time to take the stage (the van)
And as my dream world fades another takes it's place (the van)
I look into the crowd and see myself through stares (the van)
Back when I hoped someday I'd be the one up there (the van)

Reading to save our numbing minds
Meeting new friends we'll leave beind
Lay on the loft and trace the stars
Start the day in no ones arms

Another night without a sell
Another meal at Taco Bell
Another story I can tell

I'm forced awake again in time to take the stage (I can tell)
And as my dream world fades another takes it's place (I can tell)
I look into the crowd and see myself through stares (I can tell)
Back when I hoped someday I'd be the one up there (I can tell)

2, 3, 4!!!

I'm forced awake again in time to take the stage
And as my dream world fades another takes it's place
I look into the crowd and see myself through stares
Back when I hoped someday I'd be the one up there

I'm forced awake again in time to take the stage (up there)
And as my dream world fades another takes its place (up there)
I look into the crowd and see myself through stares (up there)
Back when I hoped someday I'd be the one up there (up there)

    General CommentI posted the lyrics to Westbound from right out of the CD booklet. How the hell are you gonna tell me they're not correct? People will do anything to get another lyric post under their belt, huh?

    General CommentWell then, why don't you correct the rest of the Allister lyrics I have posted? I'd assume they all need background vocals. I'll complain to the band and tell them to print background vocal in the CD booklet on their next CD. That should clear up any confusion. Let me tell you . . . your 14 year old brain is just too much for.

    General CommentActually i think BrandNew1208 is right on this one. um thats great, blaupunked, that u copied the lyrics right from the cdbooklet, but uh i think everyone on this site probably wants the entire song, background and all. haha blaupunked how old are you?... think about it, someone corrected ur lyrics... get over it. and one more thing, why did u come up with the thing about telling the band to do w/e u said idk... all he did was put the entire song on a lyric site... isn't that the point of a lyric site???

    General CommentI still see no need to post the same song twice. You see that link up on the right hand side of the screen that says "Submit Corrections"? Yeah, it was put there for a reason. Or, there is also a feature on this site called a Private Message. It's people like this who re-post songs and slows down the server, then everyone wonders why SongMeanings is always having problems. Learn to use the site properly.

    And I wouldn't talk TBSdude. Way to go posting a song you have no idea who sings. Nice one.
