"Caroline" as written by Brandi M. Carlile, Timothy Jay Hanseroth and Phillip John Hanseroth....
Hello I'm looking for a friend I lost some time ago
Your mother says she wants her girl back home
Sometimes you think you've found yourself you really only lost yourself
Or maybe you're afraid to be alone

But if I could see behind blue eyes
At all the things that dusty windows tried to hide
Then I could see behind the walls of Caroline
And behind blue eyes

I heard that you're in town again you surely can depend on me
To keep you out of the sun
Down and out and out and then I'm climbing up the walls again
We're standing in line to be the one

But if I could see behind blue eyes
And all the things that dusty windows tried to hide
Then I could see behind the walls of Caroline
And behind blue eyes

I've faced it
I'm wasted
Don't fly away before your time
It's phony,
You owe me
Come on don't fly away before your time

Yeah

But if I could see behind blue eyes
At all the things that dusty windows tried to hide
Then I could see behind the walls of Caroline
And behind blue eyes

    General CommentVery cute song about her niece. When I was at one of her concerts this was one of the first songs they played because it was her nieces first concert ever and it already "past" her bedtime.

    General CommentMakes sense. First few times I heard this I thought it was a love song, then I read the liner notes and she thanks Caroline and another on the way (or something like that) and realized she must of wrote the song for a kid. Either way its catchy and cute.

    General CommentI love the fact that Elton John joined her in this song. She is such a talented writer/singer and it's good to know how respected she is.

    General CommentI was wondering if it was for a kid. It just had that "vibe" - like there's a different kind of connection that is expressed than from a romantic song.
