How 'bout a slow one?

lyrics

The city sleeps in sheets tattered by my own two hands
But you were never good enough for me
You walls are crumbling down and you're left standing in the rain
But I was never good enough for you


Caroline,
Forget the things I said and be mind
Caroline,
The Devil won't stop us this time


The flower only grows at the hands of those who tend
And you and I will perish just the same
The ground beneath your feet has been trampled all its life
And I have been walking on you


Caroline,
Forget the things I said and be mind
Caroline,
The Devil won't stop us this time


Well she runs through the forest giving thanks to the trees
For the things that she wants and what she needs
Well her life spells out love and her heart is lady luck
And she flies though the world weighs her down


Caroline,
Forget the things I said and be mind
Caroline,
The Devil won't stop us this time


The room is dark, the bed is still, and my bones rest where they lay
But you were never good enough for me
Your head it spins and aches and there is weakness in your heart
But I was never good enough for you
