I'm so confused how to live without you
I'm not comfortable being all alone
and when I walk downtown I can see her everywhere
Shes the streets at night
Shes the morning light
and the main thing I think about at night
But were better off this way, right

Carolina you're too far away from me
Why cant you see California's what you need
What can i do so i don't ever lose you?

And I know now that the world isn't over baby
Talk to me, how's your family?
And were better off out in the world
and the two of us can be who we want to be
And shes quite a lot
I have to see, see she's real, she's really not for me

Carolina youre too far away from me,
Why cant you see California's what you need
What can I do so I dont ever lose you?

    General CommentI've had this song for awhile and never listened to it. So I just did and I'm in love with it. I love Brighten.

    Anyway, I think this song is about this girl Carolina. He feels distance between them. Either just plain distance or they've broken up. He's singing about how he thinks about her and how this is better for them, which he's lying. Then in the second verse, he's saying that they can still communicate, asking how her family is, etc. Whateva, I suck at analyzing songs!

    haha, i thought that was funny, 'cause Brighten is good friends with The Morning Light and The Maine and it says their names in the song.

    but yeahh, i agree with xxmodernlove.
    love this song.

    General Commentyea i noticed when he said the morning light while i was listening to it.

    this song does sound like a break up song and how he doesnt know how to cope with his gf gone.
