"Fading West" is the song that inspired Switchfoot's ninth album, Fading West. It was however never released on the album because it didn't have the same sound and feel to it.

It was released on the physical copy of the Fading West EP as a bonus track and later released on The Edge of the Earth extended play.

Lyrics

The sun goes down for the summer 
Mirror sky for the water
I am fading westward too
Fading west with you

Life won’t sing like I want it 
The traffic post modern sonnet 
The traffic hums a dirty tune 
Fading West with you

Heading back to the west coast 
Where I’m from 
I’m heading back to the left coast 
Where I belong. 
California’s calling me back home 
Fading West with you

Keep my mind over matter 
Cause I’ve seen my hopes shattered 
They told me lies I thought were true 
Fading West with you

The sun goes down 
We were already gone 
Heading back to the west coast 
Where I’m from 
I’m heading back to the left coast 
Where I belong. 
California’s calling me back home 
Fading West with you

When I’m out on my own 
Feel like I’m caving in 
When you leave me alone 
I start to wonder 
Where have I been 
Where have I been

Heading back to the west coast 
Where I’m from 
I’m heading back to the left coast 
Where I belong. 
California’s calling me back home 
Fading West with you
