Description

"Mississippi, Come and Take Me" is a collection of self-produced demos.

When do we know we are all grown up? Will we ever reach that point? Growing up, we all have dreams about what we'll become, where we'll live, and how we'll make our great escape from normalcy. "Mississippi, Come and Take Me" is a song about growing up and finding contentment in life. The person in the story/song grew up in a small town in Mississippi, who dreamed of finding success in New York City. Hard work paid off and they landed a job in NYC. However, in midst of great success, they feel utterly alone. To their surprise, they began to desire the very thing they worked so hard to escape: home. Open to interpretation, the songwriter's take on the song, is contentment may be right under our noses, if we allow ourselves the chance to soak it in.
