Sometimes it seems unimaginable
That you were every any other way
With your white rose face and your orphan clothes,
Embroidered jeans and silver chains
You're a well known face in all the hang-out places
Where the lost souls congregate
And you sit all night, but you talk too fast
And I don't know what you're trying to say.

Chorus
Oh Carol, I think it's time for running for cover,
Believe me, you're everyone's and nobody's lover,
You've got a one-way ticket for all your yesterdays.

I know your daddy said he'd talk to you
But he never really found the time
And your tv mother with her cocktail eyes
Could never really reach your mind
So you fixed your star to a passing dream
And took a cocaine holiday
Now the years flow round you in a muddy stream
And you need another place to stay.

Chorus

Reach down, silvery ship from the stars, I know you're there,
I know you'll understand me, you can take me anywhere,
I know you must be there...

Sometimes it seems impossible
That the game could get that rough
But the stage is set, the exit's barred
And the make-up won't come off
So you make your bow to the balcony,
You light another cigarette
and the lights grow dim ast the music starts
And it's easy to forget.

Chorus

Reach down, silvery ship from the stars, I know you're there,
I know you'll understand me, you can take me anywhere,
I know you must be there....
