​We're All That Close To Danger

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Butterstone (1989).

It isn't difficult to know where you've been
It's not hard to see the way you're going
You're just a rogue and I wish you'd come clean
This is a stormy wind that's blowing

But misfortune gets you when she can
There's no way you can change her
But you know we'll help you in the end
We're all that close to danger

It wasn't failure that made it go wrong
It was that weight upon your shoulder
And you put the rose where she did not belong
It gets so clear as we get older

And as the evening falls down on your day
And with the night there comes no sleeping
Oh no the booze it won't chase it away
As all your wildest fears come creeping
