Caroline

Comes from the rain

Glistening and shivering

She laughs as she shakes off the weather



Caroline

Whispers her words

Saying she'll always love me

At least when we are together



Caroline

Starts closing in

Surrounding the spot

Where watching in wonder I stand



Caroline

She's shedding her rings

Her bracelets and stockings

And placing her skin still moist in the palm of my hand



You're pressing she smiles

It's too soon to ask

For me to cast off my cover

You assume that I'm caught

Up there in your head

So now I must go to my lover



Her world is such a sudden place

A minute flashed before my face

To fly to feel to fall from grace

Oh Caroline, I'm leaning, careening



This bubble that I choose to chase

Keeps breaking on the brink of space

Just as I'm about to taste

It's meaning, Caroline



Caroline

Comes from the full moon

Trembling and grieving

Afraid of the march of the seasons



Caroline

You're too young to be running

Too old to be lying

Too wise not to see all the reasons



Caroline

Hangs her cape and her jeans

And surrenders her tears

To christen my pillow with sorrow



Caroline

Remains after times

To explain what she means, she speaks of today

More than she dreams of tomorrow



She says, never has life

Been so full of the urge

To let go of the night and believe

She collects all her things

While she's still of a mind

So soft it's like breathing she leaves



Her world is such a sudden place

A minute flashed before my face

To fly to feel to fall from grace

Oh Caroline, I'm leaning, careening



This bubble that I choose to chase

Keeps breaking on the brink of space

Just as I'm about to taste

It's meaning, Caroline, Caroline, Caroline
