about

This song is a fictional take on the struggle of addiction, and never knowing where you are going to end up as a result, from the perspective of loved ones watching it all play out from the sidelines.

lyrics

Carolina's Calling You
by A.Ashley

You’ve been running’ round
You’ve never settled down
You never found a town that fit you right

Been out there on your own
So far away from home
And are you tired of being alone and out of sight?

Can true love contend with...
The allure of the road
You’ve been out to find some answers, but I’m sure that you’ve been told

CHORUS
Baby, you might as well give in
Take off those walkin’ shoes
Change all of your plans
Ain’t no way you can lose
To you the highway’s fine, but little girl don’t you realize
That Carolina’s Calling You

That old train went down the track
And you never did look back
Girl, you slipped right through the cracks and you disappeared

I’ve seen all your highs and lows
And things that you never meant to show
And these are words I know that you hate to hear

But if we told you that we loved you
Would it ease your gypsy mind
Girl, I know your heart’s been heavy, but has it ever crossed your mind (you’re crazy mind)

CHORUS
Baby, you might as well give in
Take off those walkin’ shoes
Change all of your plans
Ain’t no way you can lose
To you the highway’s fine, but little girl don’t you realize
That Carolina’s Calling You

Carolina’s calling you
Carolina’s calling you
