Oh what can I tell you now, Caroline 
Should I hurt your feelings or keep on lyin'? 
One thing leads to another and another 
And another and another besides 
You always know whenever I want to make love 
And you always know all the changes I'm going through 
Just as if you can read my mind 
Caroline, you know everything I do 
There just ain't no words to describe 
How I feel inside for you. 

Yet somewhere out there 
Waitin' on a wonder 
You'll lend wings to my words 
Somewhere when the band is gone 
And the music of my song 
Is just right for lovers. 

You're what I want more than anything else 
I love you - yes I do - but I know when I'm all by myself 
Nothin' is real but my feelings and desires for you 
And everything looks like some sort of scenery 
Stored in an empty theatre 
With stars on the ground - fences in the sky 
And tears in the curtain of time 
Oh what can I tell you, my Caroline. 

Except yet somewhere out there 
Waitin' on a wonder 
You'll lend wings to my words 
Somewhere when the band is gone 
And the music of my song 
Is just right for lovers. 

Caroline, your lovin' keeps me rollin' 
Rollin' all the time, rollin' all the time 
Baby - somewhere out there 
You really roll me 
Roll me away 
Baby - somewhere out there 
You roll me, roll me away. 

And when the melody makes me surrender 
Dark eyed girl, I always remember 
That you love me somewhere out there 
You really love me in time to the music 
How you love me wildly in my heart 
Girl, you love me 
You roll me away. 

You always fill my heart with wonder 
You always fill my soul with love 
You always fill my lips with kisses 
You always fill my eyes with tears. 

It's like a wind from the other side of the world 
Like a far off pack of hounds 
Sounds like a whole universe - throbbin' with life 
I get so hypnotized in the lights 
Just like the gaze of a mantis 
Why even Atlantis sank beneath 
The waves in a day and a night 
Oh, in a day and a night I could write 
You a symphony 
It would be just like a bird 
And carry my love over the mountains. 

Cause somewhere out there 
Waitin' on a wonder 
You'll lend wings to my words 
Somewhere when the band is gone 
And the music of my song 
Is just right for lovers. 

You always fill my heart with wonder 
You always fill my soul with love 
You always fill my lips with kisses 
You always fill my eyes with tears. 

Cry Caroline.
