Carolina Love


I was standing on a corner 

browning out in Carolina 

the rain it just kept pouring down 

and the sky was black as mud. 

I was sure that you were leaving 

and headed back down to New Orleans 

that you were ready for that old life 

I was sure that your new one was done. 

But then you came around my corner 

and you were carrying your smile 

and I knew I was mistaken as my knots came undone 

I'm just a lost and lonely sailor 

and you were my breath as I laid drowning 

in that Carolina downpour 

I got lost in your Carolina love.
