California in the evening past the water
Get me over the great state line
The sky's electric, boy it's screaming
Trying to find the morning
Hell I'd settle for the other side
Don't bother counting up the days, boy

Number's getting 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 comes
Fire over the horizon keeping my eyes on
Why you're all the way in

Carolina, won't go home until I find ya
You 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

Don't feel the summer like I used to
Boy, you brought the thunder
Tucked me under
It's 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 of the highway
Nothing will stop me
'Til I'm done coming for ya

Carolina, won't go home until I find ya
You 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 a pained pursuit seem less unruly
It's been a good night
And one hell of a drive

Coming for you Carolina, won't go home until I find ya
You 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
