Ever since we took that midnight drive
Down to see the water in the full moon sky
And I told you I loved you on the blue creek road
Well I was full-on fallen for my Carolina Rose

I spent the next few years just singing my songs
With Rose in the front row singing along
'Til I got that call, had to hit that road
Man, how am I gonna leave my Carolina Rose

Yeah the big time is everything I ever wanted
But the spotlight can't hold a candle to you
Standing up here on this stage,
They all say, "Man, you got it made"
They don't know,
It don't mean a thing without my Carolina Rose

I met a California girl on a west coast run
She sparkled like a diamond in the setting sun
They called me crazy when I let her go
I just couldn't stop thinking about my Carolina Rose

Yeah the big time is everything I ever wanted
But the spotlight can't hold a candle to you
Standing up here on this stage
They all say, "Man, you got it made"
They don't know,
It don't mean a thing without my Carolina Rose

I've been halfway around the world
Just to come back to you
I hope I ain't too late
And I hope that you're still thinking about me too

So now I'm back here standing on your front porch
It's been five years baby, but it feels like more
Well let me drive you down that blue creek road
I got something to say to my Carolina Rose

Yeah the big time was everything I ever wanted
But the spotlight can't hold a candle to you
Standing up there on that stage,
It might look like I got it made
But my heart knows,
It don't mean a thing without my Carolina Rose
No it don't mean a thing without my Carolina Rose
Yeah, it don't mean a thing without my Carolina Rose

    It tells about the long distance relationship far away from the one i love. W are both following our hearts making our dreams come true but it brought us over 22 hours away from each other making it all bittersweet.
