lyrics

JACK: She said the words I bought the lines
I didn’t know that she was falling
She turned her back she cut the cords
I didn’t hear that she was calling

CAROLINE: When I seem to push you away
Listen to what I think not what I say
Sometimes words, they get in the way
You see, you’re mine and you always will be.

You really took me at my word,
it’s so absurd. You’re such a coward.
’Cos when I tell you that we’re through
it means that you should bring me flowers

JACK: You always play at being so strong
And never for a second letting on
That I could make a crack in your wall,
But then I see… a tear glistening on your cheek.

She Said…
CAROLINE: NO!
There’s something in my eye it seems.
These tears aren’t what you think they mean,
No it’s something altogether different.

JACK: I Said No!
Enough now of your foolish games
You’ve played me in a thousand ways
Is it such a great affair to show mw that you care?

CAROLINE: You say you really thought that I
had said goodbye and turned and left you.
My silly boy you know that thinking…
well, it’s never been your strong suit.

JACK: You always play at being so strong
And never for a second letting on
That I could make a crack in your wall,
But then I see… a tear glistening on your cheek.

She Said…
CAROLINE: NO!
There’s something in my eye it seems.
These tears aren’t what you think they mean,
No it’s something altogether different.

JACK: I Said No!
Enough now of your foolish games
You’ve played me in a thousand ways
Is it such a great affair to show mw that you care?

CAROLINE: And I gave you
every benefit of the doubt
The time you needed to work your feelings out.
I told you I loved you, what more could I say
One little hitch, and you throw it all away.

J: I Love You
C: Don’t Touch Me
J: I Need You
C: Don’t Rush Me
J: I screwed up…
C: You blew it!
J: But don’t you think we could…
C: …work through it?

J: I see it now, I’ve missed the signs
All of the mistakes were mine
I’ve learned to read between the lines
Will you still be mine, my Caroline?

And she said:
C: Let go of my arm
J: I didn't see she had the knife...

...and then she stabbed me.
