Kelley James – Carolina lyrics

I fell asleep in Carolina
And I woke up a better man
I feel asleep in Carolina
And I will do the best I can

Carolina love
Make ya wanna feel
Make ya wanna dance
Like it's all surreal
Drunk off a summer night
Warm to the skin
I lost my mind
Queen City took me in
I had a tendency
Just to let it go
Never thought much about
The consequences though
I guess you never do
When you're on the road
But Carolina showed
Me I could feel home

Just a California kid
Who loves to go down south
Myrtle Beach spring break
Chapel Hill now
Triangle to the Triad
I had some of the best nights
I never called my bad
Have you ever done something
That you swore was a dream
So good one night but you can't believe
Did happen or did your mind conceive
I'll be back Carolina don't forget about me

Morning could wait
I fall to pieces
But I don't care
I'm on my way
Leaving for reasons
But I'll be there
I'll be there

I'm a mess
I'm alive
What I did in the night
Just to live with the thought
Makes it real
I'm real
Life in this state
Makes the mind try to take
Me away and erase
What I feel
It's real
