“Caledonia”
Artist: Dougie MacLean
Albums: Celtic Tides (1998)

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
And I've been tellin' old stories, singing songs
That made me think about where I came from
That's the reason why I seem so far away today

CHORUS

But let me tell you that I love you
And I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're callin' me and now I'm goin' home
But if I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had

Well I have moved on, kept on moving
Proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing
Found others on the way
I have kissed the ladies and left them crying
Stolen dreams yes theres no denying
I have traveled hard with coat-tails flying
Somewhere with the wind

REPEAT CHORUS

Now I'm sitting here, before the fire
The empty room the forest choir
The flames that couldn't get any higher
But 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 flown I will disappear

REPEAT CHORUS
