Heading west is rough when the sun goes down.
Bright sun glare catches you right in the eyes.
Traffic heads home as they rush out of town.
Heading west is rough when the sun goes down.
All the cars in your way can make you frown.
Gridlock – sometimes it crawls, sometimes it flies.
Heading west is rough when the sun goes down.
Bright sun glare catches you right in the eyes.
