Baker Street

Baker Street

Gerry Rafferty, City to City album, 1978

Winding your way down on Baker Street

Light in your head and dead on your feet

Well another crazy day

You drink the night away

And forget about everything

This city desert makes she 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

Used to think that it was so easy

Used to say that it was so easy

But you're trying, you're trying now

Another year and then you'd be happy

Just one more year and then you'll be happy

But you're crying, you're crying now

Ref. [Saxophone solo]

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 asked where you've been

You tell him who you've seen

And you talk about anything

He's got this dream about buying some land

He's gonna give up the booze and the one night stands

And then he'll settle downIn this quiet little town

And forget about everything

But you know he'll always keep moving

You know, he's never gonna stop moving

Cause he's rolling, he's the rolling stone

When you wake up, it's a new morning

The sun is shining, it's a new morning

When you're going, you're going home...

Talk about a monumental lapse on my part. I count this song as one of my all-time favorites and its title prominently figures on my e-mail address. And YET, I did not feature this on my blog. Hahaha

I absolute love this song. Love the music and the words.
