"Carolina" as written by Sara Bareilles, Javier Dunn, Daniel Rhine and Josh Day....
California in the evening
Rush past the water
Get me over the great state line
The skies electrical it's screaming
Trying to find the morning
Hell I'd settle for the other side
Don't bother counting up the days boy
Numbers gettin' bigger by the minute and I'm so tired
But I can honestly say boy
Oh unless you're in it I don't want it so here it comes
Fire
Over the horizon keeping my eyes on
Wire

All the way in Carolina
I won't go home until I find ya
Ya fill my bones my mind up so
I'm coming to Carolina
Don't ya know I'm right behind ya
No love of mine
Is gonna wind
Up leaving me for Carolina

Don't feel the summer like I used to
Oh you brought thunder, tugged me under, its all your fault
Want me to let you leave do you?
Well I never minded aftermath
And this is what happens to a
Liar
Miles on the highway
Nothing to stop me
Until I'm done

Coming for you Carolina
Won't go home till I find ya
Ya fill my bones my mind up so
I'm coming to Carolina
Don't you know I'm right behind ya
No love of mine
Is gonna wind
Up leaving me for Carolina

I don't mind the rain it suits me
Makes the pain pursuit seem
Less unruly
It's been a good night
And one hell of a drive

Coming for you Carolina
Won't go home till I find ya
Ya fill my bones my mind up so
I'm coming to Carolina
Don't you know I'm right behind ya
No love of mine
Is gonna wind
Up leaving me for Carolina
Leaving me for Carolina
Leaving me for Carolina

    General Commentwow i didn't really hear this song until i searched for it on youtube. i didn't actually believe it was an SB song, but it's amazing. it's got a dark feel to it, but it also sounds like an old song. any idea as to what it might mean?
