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.
