Caroline, I see you standing on the stairway, waiting for your bear there.
Handy on the landing, penny in my pocket, high enough to hold you.

When I come back home to you tomorrow,
you may well be angry, I'll for sure be hungry.
Meet me in the middle, make it melt like chocolate, be my little baby.

I take you down by the water some December morning.
Take you from your family, leave them with their longing.
Take you by your hand, somewhere on the sand.

Caroline, I love you, though I'm late to say so, hesitate to tell you.
What will be your answer some December morning?
Standing on the stairway, Caroline, I see you.

    General CommentLove this song. Fairly obvious he's singing about his wife Caroline, maybe about their engagement.

    General CommentI think he is talking about he and his wife before their marriage. I think he's out having his fun doing whatever he does and is thinking of her. I think he knows what he's doing is not right, so he's saying that he is going to do right and ask her to marry him. By him "seeing" her I think he means he understands what he's putting her through. I can picture her looking down from upstairs as he goes out. He doesn't like it, but he's still having his fun. One day he'll let it go and settle down and do what he is supposed to do.
