Caroline

I woke up long after dawn
Twenty years had come and gone
I know when it changed for me
A day in June you came to me
I've seen through someone else's eye
With nothing on the other side
Every motel every town
Pieces scattered all around

Promises that I can't beat
Someone's heart that I can't keep
Days so long I couldn't speak
Roads so rocky I can't sleep
I've seen things so beautiful
All around this broken world
That pale in comparison to you

Caroline, I'm on my way back home to you
Imagine what I was going through
Without you by my side
It's been a long long time
Oh won't you say a prayer for me
I hope you will remember me
You're always on my mind

I have seen the canyon lands
Crooked lines like in your hands
You'd swear the earth was split in two
I wouldn't lie I promise you that
I have seen it you will too
You could not believe if not for
Photographs I took to you, Caroline

They've built towers to the sky
It hurts sometimes to watch them try
They run themselves into the ground
But I know you will love them and their
City lights and city sounds
There's beauty in a struggle
Any time I feel it get me down
I see you smiling

Caroline, I'm on my way back home to you
Can't imagine what I was going through
Without you by my side
It's been a long long time
Oh won't you say a prayer for me
I hope you will remember me
You're always on my mind, my Caroline
Oh, my Caroline

Now I have seen things in the sky
Stars and lights and birds and I
I've been rocky mountain high
Told them all about you because
You are still the only thing
That constantly amazes me
I love the road and I've been blessed
I love you best

Caroline, I'm on my way back home to you
Can't imagine what I was going through
Without you by my side
It's been a long long time
Oh won't you say a prayer for me
I hope you will remember me
You're always on my mind
You were always on my mind, my Caroline
Oh, my my my Caroline
