about

This song is a loosely autobiographical trans-Canada highway song about unhealthy but exhilarating and ultimately doomed relationships, touring across the country, desperation, and seeking closure in dramatic fashion.

lyrics

Verse Bm | | | E | | | F#m | | | | | | |
Chorus D | | | E | | | F#m | | | x2

1
That summer was like gin and rain
I met you in a house of pain
I'd save you from the wet and empty streets

You told me that I had a style
And would I waste away a while
A song a dream a heart what would it be?

For three long years we tempted fate
The clock would wind and fill our plate
Embracing every crutch and vice you’d bring

Every taste was bitter sweet
The whole charade felt so complete
Sinking into scenery that we made

-Refrain-
Oh Carolina
Where are you bringing me tonight?
Oh Carolina
Where are you bringing me tonight?

Now I wake up feeling scared
From feelings that you put in there
You never used to think that much of me
Now I’m hell bent on losing you
So this is what I’ve got to do
Chasing down this madness that we sing

refrain

One more drink and one more show
One more thing that I can’t know
One more call that rings and rings
One more song that never sings

I’m tearing down old highway 1
in the movies I would have a gun
Halfway from Gatineau to Montmagny


Oh Carolina Where are you
Bringing me tonight?
