Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

I've never seen this video

I think that the video blunts the meaning of the song a bit, but still, this is one of my favorite songs and describes so many folks I have known

I hear youre driving someone elses car now
She said you came and took your stuff away
All the poetry, and the trunk you kept your life in
I knew that it would come to that someday
Like a sad hallucination, when I opened up my eyes,
The train had passed the station, and you were trapped inside
Yet I never wonder where you went,
I only wonder why,
I wonder why...

Oh caroline
Oh, whoa-oh caroline
Oh, oh caroline
Whoa whoa whoa, caroline

Well I hear youre using someone elses number
She said she saw you in the store today
It doesnt matter whose address Youre listed under
I only know they'll never make you stay.
Like a memory in motion, You were only passing through
That is all youve ever known of life, Thats all youll ever do.
Theres a dream I have where I sail away
Looking back I wave at you,
And I wave goodbye

Oh caroline
Oh, oh whoa oh, caroline
Oh, oh caroline

In another life I see you
As an angel flying high,
And the hands of time will free you
You will cast your chains aside
And the dawn will come and kiss away
Every tear thats ever fallen
From your eyes
Behind those eyes
I wonder

Oh, caroline... oh, oh, oh...
Oh, oh... caroline...
Sometimes I wonder...
Oh... caroline
Sometimes i,
Sometimes I wonder..
