Cross the Mason Dixie

lyrics

You know I miss you but everybody knows about that
You can't discover what you already know
How long would it take to cross the Mason Dixie
Even though it's only halfway from home
I know I'd make it if my feet are kicking towards the city that was government owned
I could not translate all the words I'm thinking
You know I'm not good with those

We're breaking, oh my God!
Breaking, oh my God!
We are breaking, oh my God!

And then the fear came and kicked my two front teeth right out of my mouth and they haven't grown back since
In the middle of my silly broken sentence you stared at me with a bright blue glare
Like a child who speaks the most honest language
The truth is neither ugly nor fair
You said if I loved you here
Then I love you there

We're breaking, oh my God!
Breaking, oh my God!
We are breaking, oh my God!

And what caused it to shatter the ground upon which we stand
And what would it take to cause it from yearning
How it wishes not to break

We're breaking, oh my God!
Breaking, oh my God!
We are breaking, oh my God!

You know I miss you but everybody knows about that
You can't discover what you already know
How long would it take to cross the Mason Dixie
Even though it's only halfway from home
