Story Behind the Song

Lyrics

Hello Mrs. Carala, you look just like before
So glad you don't have that awful job no more
It's been a long time, how's your husband's heart?
Where secrets turn to lies her story starts

(ch) Oh how she smiled............that troubled child

I always looked up to you, you thought we were just friends
I always felt bad about having to pretend
Would you have accepted me - would that have been too strange?
East is east, west is west - marriages arranged

Oh how she smiled............that troubled child

When you crossed the border you wound her up so tight
Now she's free to be a prisoner of the night
When you look at her do you see your mistakes?
Children in a dark room staring down their dinner plates

But oh how she smiled..........that troubled child

How she loved me, what a Midas touch
But me and her plus one, that's one too much
She was always running, I stood in the way
Did you see her picture on that billboard yesterday?

Oh how she smiled..........that troubled child

She wails like a banshee, her boyfriend runs the "band"
I gave them songs, I gave them clothes - they grabbed and ran.
That wouldn't bother her - nothing does
The drugs are harder now, I tried them once because

Oh how she smiled..........that troubled child

A song of stone, a nerve of steel
...and me makes three - I'm not a third wheel.
Where one sees love another sees a jail
I could never learn to dance so close to that third rail.

But oh how she smiled..........that troubled child
Oh how she smiled..........your troubled child

Hello Mrs. Carala, she looks just like before.
