Tribe One - Louisiana Boy, Mississippi Girl



[Chorus/Sample?]
When can we get together again?
Never mind. I've lost you
How can I tell I love you anymore?
Never mind. I know it

[Verse 1: Tribe One]
My southern veil got me under a spell
I wasn't a sucker for love but I stumbled and fell
She gave me comfort and shelter from rain, thunder and hail
And now it's like she got me locked up in a dungeon cell
Under the jail
She was raised by tough women
And I'm a slave to my Cajun upbringing
Now that can make with some dangerous living; friction
And it's been that way from the beginning
Cause it don't take a lot to get us started with the arguing
Screaming and hollering as if we got an audience
Some problems we've been caught up in
Drama with the mom and them
Mark another column in the off-again, on-again
But she knows I'm gonna be back
If something's gonna break us up
It'll be tougher than that
Cause even though the deck
Has been shuffled and stacked
It's not an act, I'm really loving her back
Even under attack
[Refrain]
It don't make a bit of difference in the world
When this Louisiana boy's with his Mississippi Girl
And even though we have issues, I can't quit you
Won't always understand you
But I'll always stand with you

[Chorus/Sample?]
When can we get together again?
Never mind. I've lost you
How can I tell that I love you anymore?
Never mind. I know it

[Verse 2: Tribe One]
She's my Sharia Moore and when I look at her
It's like I've never seen before; if she was a beach
I'd be the sea trying to reach the shore
If love is a game
She's the reason I'm keeping score
And trying to get up outta last place
To put a smile on my sad face; doll in a glass case
She ain't used to letting people get close
Unless she's dressed from head-to-toe
She's feeling exposed and i'm like
With all of the
Kinetic tension in the room
Building up to an eruption then it went kaboom
And I'm the type that likes to pick fights
And cross boundaries
With nothing but a touch
She can take it all out of me
And every wall I've built up is breaking down
She don't have to say a word or make a sound
To get in my head
And open any door that i can slam
And that one touch is already more than I can stand
It's like fighting blood water
With a sand bag
When both of us are wanting what we can't have
And this relationship is put through so much
Cause everything with us is
"Look but don't touch"
[Sample]
What's wrong Share[?]
You know what happens when I touch somebody!
You want to end up in the hospital?
Maybe it's worth it, no?

[Verse 3: Tribe One]
It's a different kind of intimate
And I'm lucky to know her even a little bit
People try to say our love isn't legitimate
Because we can only ever be friends without benefits

[Refrain]
But it don't make a bit of difference in the world
When this Louisiana boy's with his Mississippi girl
And even though we have issues; I can't quit you
Won't always understand you
But I'll always stand with you

[Chorus/Sample?]
When can we get together again?
Never mind. I've lost you
How can I tell
I love you anymore?
Never mind. I know it
