Tell the truth, woman, just this time
I know you can do it
Your baby's eyes look just like mine
We can both see through it
Tell the truth, woman, just this time
I didn't know how much you
Would take from me

When you teach this little girl to walk
Her laughter will be mine
There's a price to pay
For a safe place to hide
Tell me are you warm inside
Tell the truth, woman, just this time

It seems that things could've been different
But I can't change it

So alright Caroline
I won't take nothing from you
And alright Caroline
I won't even tell the truth
And I'm right

Like a big black cloud coming down
It feels like I blew it
I never said you were messing around
But we could both see through it
Tell the truth, woman, just this time
For both of us
Both of us
Both of us

So alright Caroline
I won't take nothing from you
And alright Caroline
I won't even tell the truth
And I'm right

Time moves faster today
But Let's not speak of this
Some things you cannot mend, yeah
And I'm watching her sleep
She's beautiful
And you tell me that I won't be seeing you again

You didn't even ask me
If it was alright
If it was alright
If it was alright
If it was alright

I never claimed to understand you
But I feel you
I feel you
I never claimed to understand you
But I feel you
I feel you

It's gonna take a long time
To grow young again, yeah, I know
It's gonna take a long time
To grow young again, I know

It's gonna take a long time
(Alright Caroline)
To grow young again, I know
(Alright Caroline)
It's gonna take a long time
(Alright Caroline)
To grow young again, I know
(Alright Caroline)

    General CommentYou are very right sls23, this is a totally great song, I dont think it will be on the new album :(, it was from the demo for the last album. This song is easy to get, so I'm not gonna explain it, the lyrics are wonderful enough to do that perfectly on their own.

    General CommentSo, go to starcrossedpimps.net and look at the recent interview with Stephen in Miami. He said that it might be on the next album. He also talked about a new DVD and other works coming out soon.

    General Comment"Knowing we've been through it, Baby's eyes look just like mine" "When you teach this little girl to walk, another will remind"

    This is such a good song. I think its about a woman who is denying that the speaker(sj?) is the father. The speaker knows that the baby is his. I duno.. it could be wrong, does anyone have any other meanings for this song?

    General CommentI can't help but think about Tattoo of The Sun whenever I hear this song. "Baby's eyes look just like mine" in this song, "warm belly that once carried a baby for a while" in Tattoo, I might be overanalyzing. Huge fan, they just might be my favorite band, so no matter what it is incredible!!

    General CommentI have kind of a fuzzy version of this maybe its the only but does anyone know where i can get it? i downloaded it from 3eb.com is there another place?

    ya i think its about a baby too thats his like the line "didn't know what we made lying down" i think theres more references other than just that one too

    General CommentThis is a great song from a underrated band 3EB is great.. the only thing i have to say about this song is that like other song they can say 1 thing and mean a different thing. sumomne told me that in Young Jeezy's song "Go Getta" that in the chours that Jeezy is saying Coke Dealer insteed of Go getta. and that makes sence Jeezy has been known for selling drugs and all that. so in this song i think insteed of saying "even if it means the truth" i think it says "even if it means that too" and thats refuring to the kid that the speaker is not being aloowed to see or take care of. but songs can be takeing anyway but this band is still underrater and people need to go back and listen to their 1st album and undersstand how great it is...
