Caroline, in the late September sun
You blew my mind, when I thought love was good and done
The Sable River, the shiver no one could have seen
My heart was bursting at the seams
Oh, Caroline

Caroline, I thought she'd give me all I need
I dug the lines and scattered every little seed
Not a blossom, the clouds hugged every drop of rain
Love dried up and left again
Oh, Caroline

Sleep keeps sneaking out the open door
Here's my suitcase splattered on the floor
The kitchen clock has stopped, just short of four

Caroline, did I meet you once before?
By the banks where birds went shelling by the shore
I took a picture, you were merciful in dreams
I couldn't capture what you mean
Oh Caroline
