Song Lyrics – “Fly Home, Carolina”

Copywright ©2017 by Paul Greenamyer

 

Pick up, I’m calling every day now,

I’m blown up like a lead balloon.

You know my ears keep burning,

My neck keeps turning

And my words come out too soon

I asked and your eyes said it all when I saw you

In the hospital on Toulouse

I wish the world was safer

It works on paper

When we play by the same rules

 

Why don’t you fly home, Carolina

I heard you crying

But I ran the other way

And left my car t-boned in Georgia

I can’t ignore you

But I’ve got nothing left to say

 

You keep on, keep giving breaks and they break you

Another token in the pile

I know you miss your honey

They spend your money

And they only like you when you smile

But I’m all out of reasons; I’m selfish and I miss you

I’m offering the family jewels

You asked me not to judge you

I could not budge you

I know that you’re not mine to lose

 

Why don’t you fly home, Carolina

I heard you crying

But I ran the other way

And left my car t-boned in Georgia

I can’t ignore you

But I’ve got nothing left to say

 

Unless you stay

Another day

 

We run this race

 

A different pace

The starting blocks all out of place

I need your face

One cold embrace

I feel your pain

And it’s driving me insane

 

What do you think of these song lyrics?  What do you take from them?
