Caledonia       ----- Dougie MacLean

I don't know if you can see changes
that have come over me
In these last few days I've been afraid that
I might drift away
I've been telling old stories, singing songs that make me
think about where I came from
And that's the reason why I seem so far today

Let me tell you that I love you and 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

I have moved and I've kept on moving - proved the points
that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed loosing - found others
on the way
I have kissed the ladies and left them crying - stolen
dreams, yes there's no denying
I have travelled hard, somteimes with conscience flying,
somwhere 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 - they're 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 flowed
then I will disappear
