Irish Song Lyrics - CaledoniaAuthor: Dougie McClean

I don't know if you can see
the changes that have come over me
In these last few days
I've been afraid thatImight drift away
So I've been telling old stories, singing songs,
that make me think about where I came from
That's the reason why I seem so far away today
Let me tell you that I love you and I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me and now I'm going home
But if I should become a stranger
youknow that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had

I have moved and I've kept on moving,
proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing, found others on the way
I have tried and I've kept on trying, stolen dreams, yes there's no denying*
I have traveled hard sometimes with conscience flying
somewhere in the wind
Now I'm sitting here before the fire, the empty room, the forest choir
The flames that couldn't get any higher
well 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 flow
then I will disappear
