Carolina, someday I’ll, one day I’ll come home. (Avett Brothers, Salina)
Last night Sam, Jen, and I went to a house party. We wanted to pretend we were nineteen again. We struck up a conversation with a girl who really was nineteen, and moving to Minneapolis. She said Asheville had been her second choice. Of course, I started blabbering about how wonderful Asheville is. She said, “That’s what everyone tells me, and you lit up the second I mentioned it, so it must be a great place.” Was I that insightful when I was nineteen? Doubtful. Unless you consider leaping down an entire flight of stairs insightful.
I like this song for more than the fact that it mentions Carolina. Something about running around the country trying to find Somewhere. I relate to that.
Oh, the song is Salina by the Avett Brothers. This is them performing it at Bonnaroo this past June.
