lyrics

I've spent many nights in Charleston
Where Spanish moss hangs from the trees
My first son was born here
And he doesn't want to leave

But this house is full of failure
And empty memories
So pack up kid it's time to go
There's so much you should see

If you compare it to Alaska, Charleston is ancient
If you compare it to Los Angeles, Charleston is bare
If you compare it to your mother, Charleston's an angel
But over the din of comparisons, Charleston's always been there

Feels like I've spent
More than twice my life here
Cause time slides along so slow

And I know you wish your mama
Would come along with us
But it's time to go, it's time to go

If you compare it to Alaska, Charleston is ancient
If you compare it to Los Angeles, Charleston is bare
If you compare it to your mother, Charleston's an angel
But over the din of comparisons, Charleston's always been there

When someone asks us where we're from
We'll always know the answer
Cause home is something you don't just erase

But I been feeling kinda rough
And they say it might be cancer
But I'm not going until I leave this place

If you compare it to Alaska, Charleston is ancient
If you compare it to Los Angeles, Charleston is bare
If you compare it to your mother, Charleston's an angel
But over the din of comparisons, Charleston's always been there
