I met you in a parking lot
It was late in December 2005
I was coming down from a three day high
You said you come up in a one horse town
Well baby I grew up in a gamble house
It was meant to be
We were made to be broken

That's when you said your love for me
Was like a Magnolia tree
Strong and tall and as real as the breath in my lungs
Well Magnolia, don't you know
That love we hads grown cold
So won't you come back around and we can set it on fire tonight

We used to stay up late and get loud in the streets
We got arrested for possesion by the police
But you can tell the law to just leave us alone
Cause now I'm working for the ocean and paying my dues
They took everything I had but they can't have you
Cause I'm headed back, coming back to Caroline

And now your sitting cross legged on the front porch
Lightin your cigarette with my butane torch
And I'm sitting inside all alone with the radio

Well Magnolia, don't you know
That the love we hads grown cold
So won't you come back around and we can set it on fire tonight

Oh Magnolia, my loves gotten cold
So won't you come back around and we can set it on fire tonight
