Lyrics

Caroline

Written By: Jim St. James

Sometimes I think to Myself,
that I'm better off alone,
there's only so much heart inside to break,
but I was dreaming late last night, and you were by my side,
beckoning my soul into your light

chorus:

Please be mine Caroline,
I'll be there for you if you want me too,
I'll be your star, your shining knight,
I would dance on the sun through the highest flames,
to dance with you in the summer rain,
I'm right here, just open up your eyes, Caroline

Shaking the sandman out,
as I put my coffee on,
another day of wishing you were here,
and I can't seem to help myself,
from feeling quite like this,
and you don't even know that I exist

chorus:

Please be mine Caroline,
I'll be there for you if you want me too,
I'll be your star, your shining knight,
I would dance on the sun through the highest flames,
to dance with you in the summer rain,
I'm right here, just open up your eyes, Caroline

Please be mine Caroline,
I'll be there for you if you want me too,
I'll be your star, your shining knight,
I would dance on the sun through the highest flames,
to dance with you in the summer rain,
I'm right here, just open up your eyes, Caroline
