lyrics

Baby take me to New Orleans where my heart first skipped a beat
I can still picture you up on the stage in that thick humidity
I miss the way our hearts were green I miss those oak-lined streets

I dreamt of you one night in Mexico had no idea what it would mean
but i swear from here i can now see all that lay ahead of me

Katrina, you sent me on my way up that amtrak train with no idea i would stay
Katrina, is it wrong of me to say I wanna thank you for who i am today

Our paths they crossed and never met Chicago became our home
with separate lives and separate loves to think of what we could have known

That night we danced, shared a beat, I finally let you go
Our hearts had holes, they opened up, we put everything on hold

You take, and you take, and you take, and you take
You can break the levees, but oh we'll carry on
