Lyrics to Caledonia (by Dougie MacLean):

I don't know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
And these past few days I've been afraid
That I might drift away
I've been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I come from
And that's the reason why I seem
So far away today


(chorus)
Let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me
Now I'm going home
And if I should become a stranger
No 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 kissed the ladies and left them crying
Stolen dreams yes there's no denying
I have travelled hard sometimes with conscience flying
Somewhere with the wind

Now I'm sitting here before the fire
The empty room, a forest choir
The flames have cooled, don't get any higher
They've withered now, they're gone
And I'm steady thinking my way is clear
And I know what I will do tomorrow
When the hands have shaken, the kisses flowed
I will disappear
