“I woke up long after dawn
20 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
with nothin’ 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 can’t sleep
but I’ve seen things so beautiful
all around this broken world
that pale in comparison to you

Caroline I’m on my way back home to you
can’t imagine what I’m goin’ 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
that I have seen it, you will too
you could 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
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’m goin’ 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
my Caroline

Now I have seen things in the sky
stars and lights and birds and I
I’ve been rocky mountain high
and 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
but I love you best

Caroline, I’m on my way back home to you
can’t imagine what I’m goin’ 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
you were always on my mind
my Caroline”.
