"Carolyna" as written by and Paul Gendler Steve Mac....
Just another girl with a dream in her heart
Wanna make a new start with a fire inside of her
She had to go
She couldn’t stay around, everybody let her down
Stole the light and the life and the child inside of her
She’s so alone

Running for the train
Take her far away from everything she knows
And the way they make her feel
She leaves today
Never look back never lose track already strong
She’s seen too much at 17
The past will fade with the future that she craves

Carolyna, you travel so far
Trying to escape the pain, start again where you are
Carolyna, you keep following your star
Nobody said you’re beautiful
You’re beautiful the way you are

Finally you’re free, where you long to be
But it won’t take long till hits reality
The streets are cold
Big bad city gonna eat you up
Hard to survive, hard to keep your sanity
Still feeling low
But she’s never going home

Carolyna, you travel so far
Trying to escape the pain, start again where you are
Carolyna, you keep following your star
Nobody said you’re beautiful
You’re beautiful the way you are

She tries to rest
All she needs is a warm caress
All she wants is happiness

Carolyna, you travel so far
Trying to escape the pain, start again where you are
Carolyna, you keep following your star
Nobody said you’re beautiful
You’re beautiful the way you are

    General CommentThis song is actually about Melanie C herself, when she was suffering from depression the key words she wanted to find were 'love and happiness' the tatoos on her wrists at the end of the video simply mean 'love and happiness'

    General CommentTo me this song is about a girl who knows who she is inside, but no one else around her could see her true self. They made her feel worthless, and alone.
    No body has ever said she was beautiful, hen in fact she is truly beautiful both inside and out.
    She runs away and tries to make a new start, but has yet to realise the struggles of her new life.

    General CommentRhogahotte, keep your stupid comments to yourself, please.

    I can relate to this song very much, I see it as a girl who once seen her true beauty but let others get to her, and now she's lost herself somewhere and she's doing all she can to try and find herself again, to find her happiness.

    i love this song, Melanie C has an amazing voice.

    :)

    General CommentThis song really hits me though the artist is like :|
    anyway , i love the part:

    "Nobody said you’re beautiful
    You’re beautiful the way you are"

    thats amazing.

    the songs about starting over and trying to feel comfortable with yourself, i think.

    Song MeaningActually Melanie said that this song was inspired by a documentary she had seen about the Runaways I believe. I don't know all of the info, I had just seen it in an interview. :)

    General Comment"All she needs is a warm caress"

    She is a dyke bitch.

    "Wanna make a new start with a fire inside of her"

    She is having an orgasm with another dyke bitch.
