"Caroline Says II"
===================
album _Berlin_
(Lou Reed, 1973)

written by Lou Reed
===================


        Caroline says
        as she gets up off the floor
        Why is it that you beat me
        it isn't any fun

        Caroline says
        as she makes up her eye
        You ought to learn more about yourself
        think more than just I

        But she's not afraid to die
        all of her friends call her Alaska
        When she takes speed, they laugh and ask her

        What is in her mind
        what is in her mind

        Caroline says
        as she gets up from the floor
        You can hit me all you want to
        but I don't love you anymore

        Caroline says
        while biting her lip
        Life is meant to be more than this
        and this is a bum trip

        But she's not afraid to die
        all of her friends call her Alaska
        When she takes speed, they laugh and ask her

        What is in her mind
        what is in her mind

        She put her fist through the window pane
        It was such a funny feeling

        It's so cold in Alaska
        it's so cold in Alaska
        It's so cold in Alaska

        Caroline says
        as she gets up off the floor
        Why is it that you beat me
        it isn't any fun

        Caroline says
        as she makes up her eye
        You ought to learn more about yourself
        you ought to think more than just I

        She's not afraid to die
        all of her friends call her Alaska
        When she takes speed, mmmm.., they laugh and ask her

        What is in her mind
        what is in her mind

        Caroline says
        as she gets up from the floor
        You can hit me all that you want to
        but I don't love you anymore

        Caroline says
        while biting her lip
        Life is meant to be more than this
        and this is a, a bum trip

        She's not afraid to die
        all of her friends, ah, call her Alaska
        When she takes speed, they laugh and ask her

        What is in her mind
        what is in her mind

        She put her fist through the window pane
        It was such a funny feeling

        It's so cold in Alaska
        it's so cold in Alaska
        It's so cold in Alaska
        (it's so cold)
