Caroline’s Confession
(Markus Rill)

I’ve heard Caroline’s confession and now she’ll say her rosary
she’ll be granted absolution just as simple as can be
she’ll be absolved of all her sins - what about me?

Just the slender curve of her calf in her three-inch-heel shoe
makes me wish I was a regular guy just like any of you
but I’m the one she confides in, she’s the one that makes me ponder sin

I’ve heard Caroline’s confession, now she’ll say her rosary
she’ll be granted absolution just as simple as can be
she’ll be absolved of all her sins - what about me?

Just the way that her falls in curls down to the small of her back
leads my thoughts down a path of desire that ain’t nothin’ but a cul-de-sac
I’m the one that she trusts, she’s the one that makes me ponder lust

Well, I’ve heard Caroline’s confession and now she’ll say her rosary
she’ll be granted absolution just as simple as can be
she’ll be absolved of all her sins - what about me?

I’ll be in my vestibule thinking of things I shouldn’t do
I’ll be in my lonely room and I’ll be thinking and doing things that I shouldn’t do

I’ve heard Caroline’s confession and now she’ll say her rosary
she’ll be granted absolution just as simple as can be
she’ll be absolved of all her sins - what about me?
