The Wedding Present -
"Carolyn"

[ from the album "Seamonsters" (1991) ]

Lyrics

Just before you go today
There's something that I've got to say
Well you asked me what was wrong
And I didn't want to tell you

You believed me when I said I tried
But oh, Carolyn, I lied
And it's gone on far too long
And I never tried to help you

But don't wait up for me
Just don't wait up for me

It isn't quite the way you think
How low do you suppose I'd sink?
We can't bear to be apart
Oh I'm sorry that I said that

But come on now let's not pretend
We both knew we were near the end
I don't want to break your heart
But we just can't turn the clock back

But don't wait up for me
Just don't wait up for me

No more
