lyrics

looking up and the gray light shines like someone's eyes looking to the horizon
i couldn't tell you that yours were diamonds seven years ago
the sun cleared up the foggy highways and all I could think was keep those eyes on mine,
and don't you ever let me go, go, go, go.

and i feel so carolina blue
i feel so carolina blue

seven years and i still wonder is there someone i'll rely on
like i rely on all these memories of you
and in this asheville summer i still think of getting high on
fumes of your perfume in wilmington in '92

and i feel so carolina blue
and i feel so carolina blue
someone asked me for a light
i struck a match, lit up the night
and it burned the whole dawn through
and left me with a thousand thoughts of you
carolina blue

and in those appalachian autumns, in the winston winters
the wind is carrying the voice that breaks me into splinters
from halfway across the world, whichever distant city's holding you
the sky is crashing, falling, drowning me in
carolina blue

and i feel so carolina blue
and i feel so carolina blue
someone asked me for a light
i struck a match lit up the night
and it burned my whole life through
and left me with a thousand thoughts of you
carolina blue
