Baker Street

Nummer van Gerry Rafferty
Origineel op album City to City (1978)
Winding your way down on Baker Street Light in your head and dead on your feet Well another crazy day, you'll drink the night away And forget about everything This city desert makes you feel so cold It's got so many people but it's got no soul And it's taken you so long to find out you were wrong When you thought it held everything You used to think that it was so easy You used to say that it was so easy But you're tryin', you're tryin' now Another year and then you'd be happy Just one more year and then you'd be happy But you're cryin', you're cryin' now Way down the street there's a light in his place You open the door, he's got that look on his face And he asks you where you've been, you tell him who you've seen And you talk about anything He's got this dream about buyin' some land He's gonna give up the booze and the one night stands And then he'll settle down, it's a quiet little town And forget about everything But you know he'll always keep movin' You know he's never gonna stop movin' Cause he's rollin', he's the rollin' stone And when you wake up it's a new morning The sun is shining, it's a new morning But you're going, you're going home
