Five Nights In Charleston


Words and Music by Kirsten Ireland


that drive through the mountains
was the prettiest I had ever seen
knowing that on the other side
you were waiting for me

it was the start of fall
and the leaves were starting to turn
heartbreak was still a lesson
that I had yet to learn

bright lights of Charleston
where you, you met me
five nights in Charleston
not a soul did we see
the bright lights of Charleston
lit you up beautifully
five nights in Charleston
it was hard, hard to leave

we stayed curled up tight
in the comfort of that room
nothing felt as right
as my arms wrapped around you

not a soul knew where to find us
and that's just how it should have stayed
I didn't know the next time I came through
that it would be too late

bright lights of Charleston
where you, you met me
five nights in Charleston
not a soul did we see
the bright lights of Charleston
lit you up beautifully
five nights in Charleston
it was hard, hard to leave
