lyrics

Carolina

called to your shores
through the night we're sailing
from unsettled homes
lands broken and failing
a promise arose
a lonely star in a storm
through history's thunder
you're tattered and torn

was this for love
or did we have no choice
we left homes in the dark
just to hear your haunted voice
and as your song turns to a whisper
something cold flows through our veins
we left our blood here in your dirt
did you cry for us in vain

and something in the words you wrote
makes me wonder if these dreams are broken

Oh Carolina
with all those stars in your skies
we waited for ya
will you ever arrive
Carolina
with all those tears in your eyes
we waited for ya
it's just another lonely night

did I love you true
did i let you go too soon
and what will we do
if these seeds all fail to bloom
you were the promise in our hearts
you were the icon of our age
and i can't stand to watch you crumble
under such a heavy weight

and something in the words you spoke
makes me wonder if this nights not over

waves crash against your shoreline
with the wreckage of our youth
you're the reason that we dreamed up
we're the reason that it's true
cuz how long can we wait
for such a tragic end
and how much can you take
when your heart's slowly breaking?
