lyrics

I don’t wanna sing about Carolina
So many men have sang those words complete
But I just lost my ticket down to Raleigh
And got a job selling apples on the street
And it comes in waves

I don’t wanna live here my whole life
That’s the first time I have ever felt that way
But if I die alone here years from now
They’ll assume that I had found my place
And I haven’t been there yet,
I don’t know it by name
Give me three more years to wander
And ask me again

My friend told me I should turn the lens in
And let the things I feel become the screen
But I don’t know how else to tear my heart out
Than lying down and saying what I mean
And it comes in waves

I don’t claim to know where I am going
Haven’t seen the things that I will see
But I have found the closest thing to knowing
Is asking without fear and letting be
And I haven’t been there yet,
No I don’t know it by name
Give me three more years to wander
And ask me again
