    Lyrics
    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's dance makes you feel so cold, it's got
    So many people but its got no soul
    And its taken 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 trying, you're trying now
    Another year and then you'd be happy
    Just one more year and then you'd be happy
    But you're crying, you're crying now
    
    Way down the street there's a light in his place
    You open 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 everything
    
    He's got this dream about buying some land
    He's gonna give up the crack and the one night stands
    And then he'll settle down, it'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
    And you're going, you're going home
