GLASGOW ( 1990 )
I never wanted you,
I was just another of the running ones,
running from hunger,
turning my back upon the hills
that coulcn't feed me.
I never meant to stay,
just another year or two and I'd be free,
and freedom I've cherished,
tho' somehow never quite enough
to turn and walk away......
Glasgow, It's time to measure all you gave me
as they smother your old steel in chrome
Glasgow, I too must change if I'm to save me
do you mind if this survivor goes home
Where the road fails
leaves a tired stranger by a quiet shore
richer and poorer
poorer in coin but rich in spirit
now I'm wild & free
Where the gull sails
soaring unconcerned by lack of guarantees
I'm gliding on strong wings
over an edge of life that hurts
to touch a peaceful sea
Glasgow, it's time....
"....good song - I love the way that chorus comes out of nowhere...."
