"Carolina" as written by and Sheryl Crow....
Carolina
Her tears are falling like the spanish moss
Disappearing...
Into beauty found in beauty lost

So it goes, the summer blooms and fades away
Like moonlight falling on a bed
And there can be no solace in remembering
The words we never said

Faded postcards
Of all the places she loves best
Take her far away
As she presses wrinkles from her cotton dress

So it goes the summer blooms and fades away
Like moonlight crashing to the earth
And there can be no solace in remembering
The way things never were

    General CommentI love this song-- I'm not sure how old it is, but I just heard it recently and I fell in love with the feelings in this song. It just drips with sadness and regret...

    In my opinion, it speaks of a girl who fell in love but couldn't tell the person. Now she's older and living a normal life, but is still madly in love with the person she could never have and regrets never telling them when she had the chance.

    It's absolutely beautiful...
