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 had everything.
You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you're trying, you're trying now.
Another year and then you'll be happy
Just one more year and then you'll be happy
But you're crying, you're crying now.
Way down the street there's a lad in his place
He opens 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 buying some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one night stands
And then he'll settle down, there's a 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.
And when you wake up it's a new morning
The sun is shining, it's a new morning
You're going, you're going home.
