The Black Box Revelation – Gloria lyrics
Talking to myself
Man what's going on
When Mississipi life guards gives me a call
I say Gloria
Oh, Gloria

Found this bottled letter
Sender unknown
Address is to you, boy
What should we do
I said Gloria
Oh, Gloria

We need that letter but first come down
I didn't know what was coming my way
Just way too beautiful don't know what to say
So washing my mouth while they read that thing
Blown by emotions hearing their tears
I was like Gloria
Oh, Gloria

They kept on crying while reading on
I had a feeling what was coming my way
Tears blowing out of my phone like heavy rain
Mighty Mississipi started crying along
That crazy water flooded my whole town
That letter may never think of why
Like a child that never tasted chocolate that sweet
Over there the river beds are drying
While here the whole town disappeared

Now that I got stuck in this flooded place
I better figure out how to get the water back (Gloria)
Get the water back (Gloria)
To the bottled letter where it all began
To the bottled letter where it all began
