Caledonia ( 5:01)

from The Coming Of The Years

I don’t know if you can see

The changes that have come over me

In these last few days I’ve been afraid that I might drift away

So I’ve been telling old stories, singing songs

That make me think about where I come from

And that’s the reason why I seem so far away today

Oh and let me tell you that I love you

That I think about you all the time

Caledonia you’re calling me and now I’m going home

For if I should become a stranger

You know that it would make me more than sad

Caledonia’s been everything I’ve ever had

Oh and I have moved and I’ve kept on moving

Proved the points that I needed proving

Lost the friends that I needed losing, found others on the way

Oh and I have tried and kept on trying

Stolen dreams, yes there’s no denying

I have travelled hard with conscience flying

somewhere with the wind

Now I’m sitting here before the fire, the

empty room, the forest choir

The flames that couldn’t get any higher

Well they’ve withered, now they’ve gone

But I’m steady thinking, my way is clear

And I know what I will do tomorrow

When the hands have shaken and the

kisses flow, well I will disappear
