  • Hello I'm looking for a friend I lost some time ago
    Your mother says she wants her girl back home
    Sometimes you think you've found yourself you really only lost yourself
    Or maybe you're afraid to be alone

    But if I could see behind blue eyes
    At all the things that dusty windows tried to hide
    Then I could see behind the walls of Caroline
    And behind blue eyes

    I heard that you're in town again you surely can depend on me
    To keep you out of the sun
    Down and out and out and then I'm climbing up the walls again
    We're standing in line to be the one

    But if I could see behind blue eyes
    And all the things that dusty windows tried to hide
    Then I could see behind the walls of Caroline
    And behind blue eyes

    I've faced it
    I'm wasted
    Don't fly away before your time
    It's phony,
    You owe me
    Come on don't fly away before your time

    Yeah

    But if I could see behind blue eyes
    At all the things that dusty windows tried to hide
    Then I could see behind the walls of Caroline
    And behind blue eyes Writer/s: BRANDI M. CARLILE, PHILLIP JOHN HANSEROTH, TIMOTHY JAY HANSEROTH
