I woke up long after dawn
Twenty years had come and gone
I know when it changed for me
A day in June you came to me
I've seen through someone else's eyes
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 I couldn't speak
Roads so rocky I could not sleep
I've seen things so beautiful,
All around this broken world
They pale in comparison to you

Caroline, I'm on my way back home to you
Can't imagine what I've been going through
Without you by my side

It's been a long, long time
Oh, won't you say a prayer for me
I hope you will remember me
You're always on my mind

I have seen the canyon lands
Crooked lines like in your hands
You'd swear the earth was split in two
I wouldn't lie, I promise you
I have seen it, you will too
You would not believe if not for
Photographs I took for you, Caroline

They've built towers to the sky
It hurts sometimes to watch them try
They run themselves into the ground
But I know you will love them
City lights and city sounds
There's beauty in the struggle
Anytime it gets me down
I see you smilin'

Caroline, I'm on my way back home to you
Can't imagine what I been going through
Without you by my side

It's been a long, long time
Oh, won't you say a prayer for me
I hope that you 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, told them all about you
Because you are still the only thing that constantly amazes me
I love the road and I've been blessed
I love you best.

Caroline, I'm on my way back home to you
Can't imagine what I've been going through
Without you by my side

It's been a long, long time
Oh won't you say a prayer for me
I hope that you remember me
You're always on my mind, oh always on my mind
My Caroline
