about

lyrics

It’s all changed
Since I was on this road [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
Light fading
These days are growing cold [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
The wind brings
A warning in the air [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
There could be
Some tough times up ahead [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]

We were once
So close we were as one [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
I stayed out
Thought I was having fun [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
She left, said
See you when you’re a man [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
It’s taken
This long to understand [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]

Now I feel ashamed
Why I take this pain
Hundred miles apart
Punishing my heart
Making up is tough
If I hurt enough
Will she take me back
Or will she just send me packing

Now I’m getting near
What if she’s not in?
If I can’t see her
Long way home again
Leave a sorry note
I’ll be back one day
But next time I’ll know
Find the easy way

I’ll tell her
That I’m a wiser guy [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
I’ll say that
I’m really gonna try [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
If she can
Forget what’s in the past [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
She’ll find out
I’m worth a second chance [from Ulgham riding west to Haugh of Urr]
