Carolina Lyrics

She's got a family in Carolina
So far away but she says I remind her of home
Feeling oh so far from home
She never saw herself as a west coaster
Moved all the way cause her grandma told her
Towns better swim before you drown

    About meeting someone one time but their whole aura makes it hard for you to forget them. Something about them makes you constantly think about them.
    Harry went on a blind date with a girl from Carolina who had moved to LA for school and if you listen or read the lyrics carefully, you will hear the name of the girl.
    After meeting her once, he writes a song about her and how she seems like the deceivingly innocent type.

    This song Harry Styles has wrote is about a girl named Townes Adair Jones originally from Greenwood, South Carolina, who moved to California to attend UCLA as a student. Now as for how they met, both Harry and Townes have mutual friends who apparently set them up on a blind date, which is what Harry was talking about when he said he “went out for a day” when he claims he had a mind block and couldn’t write songs.

    It literally has the girls name in it. “...moved all the way cause her grandma told her ‘Townes, you better swim before you drown’”. Obvi she had an impact on him so he wrote a song. I really hope she has a sibling called City or Village or something. If not, Townes, HMU for possible baby names when you are ready

    This could be about a girl who is invincible from the narrators point of view (Harry might not have meant it from his perspective). For example, 'There's not a drink that I think could sink her.' suggests this girl could pass through anything and that nothing can get her down. This song has a great vibe :)!
