Mississippi Moon

Album: Ear Candy (1996)
  • Today I walked, today I ran
    Today I tried to figure who I am
    Yesterday we played in our waterfall
    Dancing with the summer, laughing at it all

    Over the Mississippi moon
    Have to make myself remember
    It's something that I used to know

    Over the Mississippi moon
    Got to get myself together
    I've started seeing blue and gold

    Today I flew over the hill
    Reaching for that feeling, one more thrill
    Yesterday the same, tomorrow never knows
    I carry all my life wherever I go

    Over the Mississippi moon
    Have to make myself remember
    It's something that I used to know

    Over the Mississippi moon
    Got to get myself together
    I've started seeing blue and gold

    Over the Mississippi moon, over, over
    Over the Mississippi moon, over, over

    Over the Mississippi moon
    Have to make myself remember
    It's something that I used to know

    Over the Mississippi moon
    Got to get myself together
    I've started seeing blue and gold

    Blue and gold
    I've started seeing blue and gold
    Blue and gold
