Well we both agreed that the time had come
We’d had the best of a pretty good run
We were getting near the end.
And she kissed my cheek as she said goodbye
Her smile was sad, but her eyes were dry
And we parted just like friends
It was Sunday morning at 10 o’clock
We cut the ties and we broke the locks
That had held it all in place
and it was Tuesday evening at quarter til when she drowned her ills in a bottle of pills
I shoulda seen it i her face
Well I guess that she was fakin
Cos her heart was really breakin
As she turned around and walked away
Darlin' please I know we’ve left some better times behind
But if we try it again in the end we’ll see it through.
On my knees it’s please, be mine forever, sweet Caroline.
'Cos there will never be forever unless its me and you.
CAROLINE: Well I said the words as I read the lines
but I couldn't quite get my heart behind
all the meaning held within.
And it came as a bit of a suprise that he missed the fact that between the lines
something more was being said
