1. Caroline

From the recording In Winter's Shade


Caroline would you come near to me
everything is wrong again.
I don’t know what you could say to me
to make it all right again.

Well I don’t know
but I’ve been wandering through the woods
and feeling everything again.

I wish I could put my hands all over you
and all your majesty would be gone.
But I still remember you singing:

I like to sit in pretty pastures green
and tend to all the sheep.
I like to sing
when no one is around to hear me.

Caroline, if you died I’d be fine.
Everything would be alright again.
But you don’t die you just sing to me
the same old song again again again.

I like to lie along the rocks
and feel the waves wash over me.
I like to watch the clouds.
I like to sleep.
