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 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 
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
In some 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
