A Dangerous Age Lyrics

Artist: Gerry Rafferty
Album: North & South

Night was fallin', the horizon was callin', as we drove into the setting sun
Goin' back to that country that we still call home
Said good bye to the capital city, yeah this town has got me on the run
I need to spend some time out in the great unknown.

I'm lookin' for sweet inspiration, every morning noon and night
But these days it just keeps on passing me by,

I know you don't feel like making this journey, but you know that time is on my side
I can't go on living like a refugee
Way down south where the living is easy, we can look across the great divide
But all we've got is a pocketful of memories.

We stood on the motorway shoulder as the sun rose over the lowland hills
And my heart broke down, when I looked at you
Don't tell me you're leavin' me now, when you know how hard I've been tryin'
Darling you're my world, don't bring it all tumbling down
It's only the code of the road, and the sound of a motor wheel cryin'
Don't renege my love, don't bring it all tumbling down.

One more morning, yes another day dawning, and I'm looking at a bird that sings
Wish I could change my whole life, and just fly away
Over the mountains down through the valleys, through the homeland of the Celtic kings
Now it's just the frontline for the U.S.A..

We live in a time when the spirit of love and devotion is breakin' down
And my heart broke down when I looked at you
Don't tell me you're leavin' me now, when you know how hard I've been tryin'
Darling you're my world, don't bring it all tumbling down
It's only the code of the road, and the sound of a motor wheel cryin'
Don't renege my love, don't bring it all tumbling down.
