Lyrics

CAROLINE

I FOUND CAROLINE IN A BURNED OUT LOUNGE
OFF BROKEN STREET AND LOST BOULEVARD
STICKING OUT LIKE A SORE THUMB ON THE HAND OF DELILAH
SHE WAS WAY TOO GENTLE TO BE DRINKING THAT HARD

FENDING OFF SAILORS, SUITS, AND HIPSTERS
WITH A WAVE OF ANY FINGER SHE’D CHOOSE
PERFECTLY CONTENTED WITH BAR ROOM WHISPERS
SAYIN’, “ONE MORE ROUND TO FIX MY BLUES”

CHORUS: HEY, CAROLINE I WONDER IF YOU ONLY
COULD FIND A PLACE IN YOUR WORN DOWN HEART
SOMMERVILLE DOESN’T HAVE TO BE SO LONELY
YOU BREAK IT DOWN THEN YOU TEAR IT APART

CAROLINE ALWAYS LEAVES HER HAIR DOWN
NEVER BEEN ONE TO PUT ON SHOW
SHE FINDS THAT TIME MOVES A LITTLE BIT SLOWER
THE MORE I PUSH THE PEDAL DOWN TO THE FLOOR

CHORUS…

INSTR.

I PONDER NO ROMANTIC INTENTIONS
TO BE A FRIEND IS SOMETIMES MORE
A SOUL FOUND WITH COMMON DIMENSIONS
TO NEVER WORRY ‘BOUT SETTLING THE SCORE

I FOUND HER AGE WAS AN ARBITRARY NUMBER
SHE WAS WISER THAN DEMEANOR COULD TELL
SHE BROKE THE FOUNTAIN IN HOTEL LOBBY,
SAID, “ EVERYTHING’S BEEN DONE, YOU JUST GOTTA DO IT WELL”

CHORUS…

YOU BREAK IT DOWN THEN YOU TEAR IT APART, OH OH
YOU BREAK IT DOWN THEN YOU TEAR IT APART
