Caledonia                              Dougie MacLean


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 telling old stories, singing songs
That made me think about where i came from
Thats the reason why i seem so far away today.

Oh but let me tell you that i love you
And i think about you all the time
Caledonia your calling me and I'm going home
But if i should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia your everything I've ever had.

Well I've been moved, and I've kept on moving

Proved the points that i needed prooving
Lost the friends i needed loosing
Found others on the way
And i have kissed the ladies and left them crying
Stolen dreams theres no denying
Travelled hard with contience flying
Somewhere with the wind

Now I'm sitting here, beside the fire

The empty room the forest choir
Flames that couldn't get any higher
They've withered now there gone
But I'm steady thinking my way is clear,
And I know what I must do tomorrow
When the hands have shaken and the kisses flown
I will disappear.
