Baker Street

In the style of

Gerry Rafferty

Lyrics

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 taking 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'll be happy
just one more year
and then
you'll be happy
but you're cryin'
you're cryin' now

way down the street
there's a light
in his place
he opens the door
he's got that look
on his face

and he asks you
where you 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
in some 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

when you wake up
it's a new mornin'
the sun is shinin'
it's a new mornin'
and you're goin'
you're goin' home
