"What It Is (Nina's Song)" as written by Todd Jerome Chapman and Y ....
Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
And miss it each night and day
I know I'm not wrong, the feeling's getting stronger
The longer I stay away

Miss the moss-covered vines, tall sugar pines
Where mockingbirds used to sing
I'd love to see that old lazy Mississippi
Hurrying into Spring

The moonlight on the bayou
A Creole tune that fills the air
I dream about magnolias in bloom
And I'm wishin' I was there

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
When that's where you left your heart
And there's one thing more, I miss the one I care for
More than I miss New Orleans

    General CommentThis song is about keeping your spirits up and staying optimistic and not straying from the path of things that are beautiful and pure and shit like that! Dont poison yourself with ugly things or hateful ideals and youll live a pretty decent life trying to help people not harming them.

    General CommentIt sounds a lot like an early version of The Brothers Cup; it even has some of the same lines as it. Still a great song though.
