Carolina, Carolina

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album The Power & The Glory (2011).

Time, ah, she's such an elusive girl
She makes such bad eye contact
Seems to move you by waves and circles
Just to bring you back

To that line of demarcation
Where you straight paths got a little bent
Right back to that place of new beginnings
Just like where all the old ones went
Carolina, what am I to do?
Did I fail to render all that was your due?
Could heaven ever be more blue?
No, I didn't think so...
No, no, no, I didn't think so...

And your eyes were never sharper
Than when you got born again in spring
And winter takes you by the hand just to make you a little older
But that's not such a bad thing

If you're caught out there on life's wasteland borders
With all your immigrant deficits in tow
You swim the river to a deeper truth
And the searchlight shines through your ghost
