False, False Caroline

from Voices From a Broken Window by Jon Hughes



False, False Caroline

Someone made me think that
Your were like no other
Person I had ever seen,
Until someone told me
You were just another
Alcoholic drama queen.
And these words I took as truth,
Cause I knew him better than you
And what I called you wasn’t right...
False, false Caroline.

Then I saw you sitting
At the corner table
With a book I’d also read.
Then it came a sudden
Nauseated feeling
At the words that I had said;
Not because you stopped and stared,
But you were sitting in my chair.
No, I wasn’t right,
False, false Caroline.

Someone whom I’d never met,
He said that you had flown,
Or so I overheard.
Supping airport brandy
Alexanders I could
See the errors in my words.
In this issue unresolved
Was only one of us involved.
No, I wasn’t right
False, false Caroline.

So I’ll see you when I’m
Finished waiting for someone
To tell me something true.
