lifeblood: songs: lyrics: carolina in the pines


she came to me
said she knew me
said she'd known me
a long time
and she spoke of
being in love
with every mountain
she had climbed

and she talked of
trails she'd walked up
far above the
timber line
from that night on
i knew i'd write songs
with carolina
in the pines

there's a new moon
on the fourteenth
first quarter
the twenty first
and the full moon
in the last week
brings a fullness
to this earth

there's no guesswork
in the clockwork
of the world's heart
or mine
there are nights i
only feel right
with carolina
in the pines

when the frost shows
(there are nights)
on the windows
(i only)
and the wood stove
(feel)
smokes and glows
(right)
as the fire grows
(carolina)
we can warm ourselves
(in the pines)
watching rainbows
in the coals

and we'll talk of
(she came to me)
trails we walked up
(said she knew me)
far above the
(far above the)
timber line
(timber line)
there are nights i
only feel right
with carolina
in the pines

there are nights i
only feel right
with carolina
in the pines
