    General CommentA beautiful tune.Dreamy and romantic. I think the vocal sounds like
    Share bright failing star
    Caroline, Caroline, Caroline, Caroline
    Riding there, surely, surely, surely on

    He stands beneath bright stars that are on the verge of dying ("white dwarves," these stars are called)
    Thinking of a lady he loves (Caroline)
    Riding the bus or the tube, having moved on with her life, certainly to be out of his l.
    And he's thinking of how he and his sweetheart, his Caroline, walked and kissed under these bright "white dwarf stars" together, and the poor feller's got the sorrows. Awwwww.

    So, there you go. It's a broken-heart song. It's a song about romantic parting and the sorrow it brings
