I’m Sorry, Caroline

Posted by: TGST

PROMISE the piano song will be finished for next week, for now: a WatchPaper tune.

Punched me in the mouth and I lost my teeth
Now I’m all bark with no one to bite
I used to think that I was tough
But then you went and called my bluff
I’m so sorry, Caroline.

She’s taking both her cats to France
Going back home ain’t got another chance
Cause when its’ good, I’ll make it bad
I’ll crush it once it’s in my hands.

Stomach’s tied in knots and I can’t get straight
Keep falling in and out of love
I slammed the door on opportunity
But these old feelings won’t let me be
It’s gotta be good-bye, Caroline.

She gave me 18 months to change
The conversation says we’re still estranged
I’ll think too hard, she’ll sink too far
And leave us both with broken hearts.

I hate to end it all this way,
But sometimes love just needs a change.

Kicked me out the house and I’m on the street
I’ll tell this tale to everyone I meet
If you’ve got love, don’t let it die
But it’s gotta do more than just survive.
I’m so sorry, Caroline.

  4. Pat Says:

    Wow, great stuff Ben!

    Also, is it just me or has The Great and Secret Thing website gone sentient and started posting comments?

  5. Zach Says:

    All of the damned posts said “posted by ZACH” and that just seemed conceited.

    So instead, I have to post as the site.

    EDIT: Oop! Admin magic! I can edit my own posting name!

Have Your Say
