There's a song of the west, sings on the breeze
Kisses the west Texas plains
A red sun is sinking over the hills
Where a carpet of bluebonnets sways

We sang in the moonlight, together as one
Til a ceiling of stars swooned and fell
And when the sun came to find us I saw in your face
You mistook me for somebody else

You mistook me for someone whose heart could be sold
Whose soul could be bullied and tamed
To stand in your shadow so cruel and so cold
A stranger to my own self
Oh you mistook me for somebody else

There’s a song of the west rings in my ears
It’s the voice of the ancient ones
And they speak of forgiveness for those who have wronged us
And remind us of how far we’ve come

We stood on the mountain, too young to fear
What was waiting below when we fell
And what I thought was a smile I know now was a sneer
I mistook you for somebody else

I mistook you for someone to call a true friend
To follow each bend in the road
A lake in the desert, the shine of fool’s gold
An ocean inside a seashell
Oh I mistook you for somebody else

There’s a song of the west, sings on the breeze
