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

    My InterpretationI find this part of the lyrics most interesting:

    "Another year and then you'll be happy
    Just one more year and then you'll be happy
    But you're cryin'
    You're cryin' now"

    It's about living for the future. You think: it sucks now, but it's gonna be better as soon as I get out of school/move away/get married etc.... Never actually realizing that in the moment it happens you don't feel a bit more happy and you just find some different point in the future lying yourself that this is it. False hope.
