You are right about this
I read your letter
You are right about this
It is his beginning
Yes it is his, his beginning.

I am right
Right about this
The gun goes, it says begin
And this is your beginning
Yes, your beginning.

But not with him
So sorry now
No, not this time
No, not, not with this one
At this time
So you will go.

I am right
Right about this
He has a well
And yes, he fits in her
Oh, her beginning
Quite beautifully
You must accept this

Cuz you, you have the ocean
I said, you, you have the ocean
Caroline wedding for you
Waiting for you
To swim in
To be born in
To begin again.

I am right
Right about this
Words so cruel from a man
You can't live
You can't live for long
You can't live for long
With it
Another rapist

Oh, but you, you now have the ocean
Oh yes, my Caroline
You have the ocean
And he has
Yes he has
His beginning
And it is
Inside a well

    General CommentThis song is personal for me because I have a friend this song reminds me of. It's about a woman (Caroline, according to the song) who has been hurt before. Since it said ANOTHER rapist, I'm thinking she's been raped before. She's with a man who treats her badly and the narrator of the song is telling Caroline that she has so much potential and so much love to give. She has to make a new beginning but she can't do it with this man because of how he mistreats her.
