lyrics

I loved my own reflection
And the sound of my own voice
Full of dreams and wild convictions
Being brave the only choice

Ohio’s missing mountains
Great lake don’t smell like the sea
I knew only of adventures
started walking to get free

Was it your fault or was it mine
I’ll take the blame now or I’ll die trying

It’s an uncomfortable silence
Sitting with yourself
So I laced up fresh nikes
Picked up the pace headed somewhere else

When i got tired of running
I rode a horse I used to know
She needed grain i was out of money
So I let that old mare go

Was it your fault or was it mine
I’ll take the blame now or I’ll die trying
You were a mirror I was a mirage
Wet as a river just hot black top

Now i’m standing out in the desert
Your love sweet eastern sunrise
All was soft around the edges
Painted in a golden light

But the day it grew much hotter
Ran out of shade and you intensify
I sweat out all that mattered
I had no tears left to cry

Was it your fault or was it mine
I’ll take the blame now or I’ll die trying
You were a mirror I was a mirage
Wet as a river just hot black top
Hot black top

So i could wander for some shelter
But i think i’ll just rest here
Lie among the Cactus flowers
beautiful pain the living share

I hope that death comes quickly
I don’t want to linger on
Maybe i’ll go singing
I’ve always loved those old folk songs

About the girl from flat ohio
That place that never felt like home
She was always after something better
Something better takes way too long

Was it your fault or was it mine
I’ll take the blame now or I’ll die trying
You were a mirror I was a mirage
Wet as a river just hot black top
Hot black top
