Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/29/18 Street.

This is my entry for Helen Vahdati‘s Song Lyric Sunday.

Rules and Pingback Here.

This week’s prompt is Street.

Well there are so many songs about Streets, classic and modern. So again Helen has made us think long and hard about this one.

I am going back to 1978 when I 25years old, I only had two boys then. Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty knocked me sideways, unlike most of the songs around then it was melodic and to me perfect, I love it still to this day! Brings back so many memories.

Baker Street.
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

    A classic Willow, and one of my favourites from that time. I was 22.

    Love this song!
    I’d say Our House by Madness!
    Our House, in the middle of our STREET!

    I picked this song too. Was surprised how many bands covered it. Still to me the original is the best.

    Great song! I’ve liked Gerry Rafferty from his Stealer’s Wheel days.

    Great choice, and, since we are admitting ages, I was 30!
    Is it really that long ago?
