Carolina Time, A Lyrical And Musical Adventure

Carolina Time Moves a Little Slower!

Let's stay here just a little while longer!

Lyrics and story behind "Carolina Time" written by Emily Frances and Dan Evans of MidWest Coast

Midwest Coast Carolina Time

 

It was our second trip to North Carolina, sitting on the back porch after a day of exploring the Nantahala Outdoors Center, local breweries, Mountain Layers captured our hearts (and taste buds), we strummed and hummed out came "Carolina Time".

The lyrics tell the story to a 'T'.  We found it, we fell in love, we made new friends, we didn't want to leave, we left, we realized it was a state of mind that made us so happy.

You often hear about songs that were written in 20 minutes, this was not quite that situation.  Carolina Time was born in the mountains.  The idea of Carolina Time is that you can put the song on and drift away to the mountains!  We want everyone to experience Carolina Time because it really IS a state of mind. (It's a great focus for meditation happy place to go to!) We won't ever turn down a Carolina Adventure!

Carolina Time

Floating down the river on a hot summer day

Found us a brewery and drank our cares away

Met some folks, so I think we'll stay

Say goodbye city life , had enough anyway

Carolina time moves a little slower

Carolina time brings us a little closer

lets stay here just a little while longer 

Say goodbye city life, we're on Carolina Time!

Headed 'cross the state line, back to Tennesee

Ain't in a hurry, too bad it's time to leave

make ourselves face reality,

Say goodbye to mountain life, so long Carolina Time

Carolina time moves a little slower 

Carolina time brings us a little closer 

lets stay here just a little while longer  

Say goodbye city life, we're on Carolina Time!

Sippin on some moonshine on a high rise balcony

might not be a mountain or pine tree in this scene,

but for now, it's the best it'll be.  

'Cause it's not a state line, but a state of mind you see!

Carolina time moves a little slower 

Carolina time brings us a little closer 

lets stay here just a little while longer  

Say goodbye city life, we're on Carolina Time!
