Paula Cole - Mississippi Lyrics




I know I'm big and proud all over, not just on the stage
my secret self has many sides
that laugh and crush and sting
I'm red and thick like fire
I like it from behind
round to back
red to white
I'm pure inside and silent

[CHORUS:]
I've got a piece of my heart
on the sole of your shoe
I've got a little bit of thunder
trapped inside of that cloud
that dog in you spit me out into the mississippi

I know who can love my many selves
the wife the bitch the rapunzel?
the one who cries and calls for you
the one who is always alone

[CHORUS:]

oh Mississippi come and wash my pain away
oh Mississippi come and take my pain away
I feel I'm drowning
I feel I'm drowning
I feel I'm...
I feel I'm... dying

[CHORUS x3]

    Mississippi"

    I know I'm big and proud all over, not just on the stage 
    my secret self has many sides 
    that laugh and crush and sting 
    I'm red and thick like fire 
    I like it from behind 
    round to back 
    red to white 
    I'm pure inside and silent 

    [CHORUS:]
    I've got a piece of my heart 
    on the sole of your shoe 
    I've got a little bit of thunder 
    trapped inside of that cloud 
    that dog in you spit me out into the mississippi 

    I know who can love my many selves 
    the wife the bitch the rapunzel? 
    the one who cries and calls for you 
    the one who is always alone 

    [CHORUS:]

    oh Mississippi come and wash my pain away 
    oh Mississippi come and take my pain away 
    I feel I'm drowning 
    I feel I'm drowning 
    I feel I'm... 
    I feel I'm... dying
