About Carrie

"Carrie" is a power ballad by the Swedish hard rock band Europe released in 1987. It was the third single released internationally from the album The Final Countdown, and it is their highest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart—peaking at #3 (#1 on the Radio and Records chart) during the fall of 1987. The track on the B-side of the 7" single was "Love Chaser". The song was written by Joey Tempest and Mic Michaeli in 1985. An early version of the song that consisted of just keyboards and vocals, was played on a tour in Sweden the same year. The demo version was similar, but the final version that was included on the album The Final Countdown included the whole band playing. On Europe tours following the band's reunion in 2003, an acoustic version of "Carrie" has been played, with Tempest performing the song on an acoustic guitar. In recent years, however, the band has switched back to the arrangement of the album version. A performance of the acoustic version can be found on the Live from the Dark DVD and a performance of the album version can be found on the Live at Shepherd's Bush, London DVD.

When lights go down, I see no reason
For you to cry, we've been through this before
In every time, in every season
God knows I've tried
So please don't ask for more

Can't you see it in my eyes?
Though this might be our last goodbye
Carrie
Carrie
Things they change my friend
Whoa oh
Carrie
Carrie
Maybe we'll meet again
Somewhere, again

I read your mind with no intentions
Of being unkind, I wish I could explain
It all takes time
A whole lot of patience
If it's a crime, how come I feel no pain?

Can't you see it in my eyes?
Though this might be our last goodbye
Oh ho ho
Carrie
Carrie
Oh, things they change my friend
Whoa oh
Carrie
Carrie
Maybe we'll meet again

Oh
Can't you see it in my eyes?
Though this might be our last goodbye
(Oh ho ho)
Oh
Carrie
Carrie
Oh, things they change
Carrie, Carrie, Carrie
(Oh ho ho)
Carrie
Carrie
Maybe we'll meet again
Oh, somewhere again

When lights go down
