I woke up long after dawn,
Twenty years had come and gone.
I know when it changed for me,
A day in junior came to me
I've seen through someone elses eyes,
With nothing on the other side.
Every motel, every town
Pieces scattered all around.
Promises that I can't be,
Someone's heart that I can't keep.
Days so long that I can't speak,
Road so rocky that I can't sleep.
I've seen things so beautiful
All around this broken road that
Pale in comparison to you...

Caroline! I'm on my way back home to you,
Can't imagine what I've gone through without you by my
Side.
It's been a long, long time, oh,
I want you to say a prayer for me, I hope you will
Remember me.
You're always on my mind, my Caroline.

I have seen the canyon land,
Crooked lines like in you hands,
Where the earth was split in two.
I wouldn't lie I promise you that
I have seen you will too, you would
Not believe if not for photographs I took for you,
Caroline! They build towers to the sky,
It hurts sometimes to watch them try

They run themselves into the ground,
But I know you will love them,
And their city lights, and city sounds;
There's beauty in the struggle,
Anytime I feel it get me down, I see you smiling.

Caroline! I'm on my way back home to you,
Can't imagine what I've gone through without you by my
Side.
It's been a long, long time, oh,
I want you to say a prayer for me, I hope you will
Remember me.
You're always on my mind, my Caroline.

I have seen things in the sky;
Stars and lights and birds and I,
I've been rocky mountain high,
I told them all about you,
Because you are still the only thing
That constantly amazes me.
I love the road and I've been blest,
But I love you best!

Caroline! I'm on my way back home to you,
Can't imagine what I've gone through without you by my
Side.
It's been a long, long time, oh,
I want you to say a prayer for me, I hope you will
Remember me.
You're always on my mind, my Caroline.

My Caroline, Oh my, my Caroline.
