They say your middle name is trouble
But I know it’s Caroline

They say you remind them of problems
But I think you look like Audrey

Caroline, I know that you put on a show
Every time you two disagree

This heart is a stone
No one will ever break it
This heart is a stone
Close to you it breaks easily
‘Cause everything that they say
It tells me to go away
But everything that I feel
It tells me to stay

They say they can smell the drama
But I know it’s No. 5

They say you only bring heartache
But I know you bought a bottle of wine

Caroline, I know that you put on a show
Every time you two disagree

This heart is a stone
No one will ever break it
This heart is a stone
Close to you it breaks easily
‘Cause everything that they say
It tells me to go away
But everything that I feel
It tells me to stay

They say you’re like a Monday morning
I say you’re like a Friday night
I don’t get their point
Anytime is a good time for being with you

This heart is a stone
No one will ever break it
This heart is a stone
Close to you it breaks easily
‘Cause everything that they say
It tells me to go away
But everything that I feel
It tells me to stay

    General CommentFor me, this song kind of contradicts itself. People think her middle name is Trouble, but she's like a Monday morning? Doesn't really fit, in my mind.

    General Commentit doesn't contradict itself. it's pretty much saying "this person is no good for you" trouble is bad, monday mornings usually suck (hence friday being a much more fun place to be).

    General Commenti think this song is about her friend, and everyone in the singers life is telling her to get out of the friendship because Caroline is trouble. she really loves to hang out with her friend though so she wont. thats what i get out of it anyway. she sings so pretty.

    General CommentBasically she adores Caroline, and when they say the usual bad-news metaphors like "her middle name is trouble!" she takes them literally, cheerfully disagrees, and goes on adoring her.

    General CommentI think it's naive to think they're friends! I believe: "This heart is a stone, close to you it breaks easily" and "They say you only bring heartache, But I know you bought a bottle of wine" ... it means they are romantically envolved. It doesn't mean she's gay or something like that, because this song was probably wrote by all or some of them... So this's upon your imagination ;]

    I wanna know if anyone knows what means "Nº 5"? ...

    General Comment"Nº 5" probably refers to the perfume Chanel Nº 5. And i agree they're romantically envolved. I think the songs get even cutter when you think of them as a gay couple, it sounds like one more 'problem' the're overcoming.
