Feels like an ending
She's winding her way towards a conclusion
That never comes
Caroline feels uncomfortably numb
She's in deep
Surrendering to the promise of sleep
Caroline plays an audience of one
And it isn't polite
She won't even try
A problem to no one
A problem to none
How can it be as quiet as this
This close to the edge?
Caroline says she's nobody's friend
How can you breathe
Embarrassed to be this far left of alone?
Caroline knows there's nobody home
Winding its way towards a conclusion
Caroline knows there's nothing to come
When in doubt
She wanted to get it all down in writing
Better if someone else works it out
The files are deleted
No resisting at all
