Westbound is an unreleased track recorded between 2005 and 2006. It was track seven for the album Sirens, which Lana recorded under the name May Jailer, an early alter ego....
you didn't think about anyone else
you didn't think about any of us
when you left that place,
you didn't wanna go anywhere else.
nothing could satisfy you till you left,
so you went away.

where'd you go?
where are you now?
I ask about,
so many of my friends,
all about their ends.

what about us?
are we just dust,
on the floor again?
I thought we were on the mend.

you really put me in quite a position,
you got me struggling as a musician,
with a song

you like to write about all of your problems,
put them in songs because you think it would solve them,
but you're wrong

why did you go?
I guess I know
maybe my question is…
why must it come to this?

you talk about,
being strung out,
and how I wanna be,
you and your melody.

la da da
mmm

trying to learn about something important,
you keep taking up space, you're annoying,
but I love you so
yeah, you already know, oh

they're trying to teach me about new ways of living,
they're trying to teach me about ways of forgiving,
but you make it hard
you're such a bad, bad boy

i love you anyway
no matter what they say
you are not approved,
but you are on the move.

I care about,
how this turns out
it's just more than I,
ever knew how to fight
I guess I'm old.

tell me I have to,
tell me I have to,
I know you could,
I said, I know you could,

where are you now?
I ask about
