This might be your only chance to prove it on your own
Tulsa's not that
Tulsa's not that far
Besides if you stayed I'd feel a certain guilt
Did I hold you?
Did I hold you back?
Can I count on you if I fall apart?
If I fall
If I fall apart?
That's how I escaped my certain fate
That's how I escaped my certain fate
(Innocence a novice's mistake)
That's how I escaped my certain fate
That's how I escaped my certain fate
(Honesty's an actors worst mistake)
That's how I escaped my certain fate

    General CommentMy friend Karl figured this one out (I had no idea what Clint was saying half the time...my ears aren't so good!). It's the story of a couple starting college; the girl wants to go to school in Tulsa, but unbeknownst to her, the guy WANTS her to go, so that he can "escape" his "certain fate" of being stuck with her. He covers it up in niceties that make it seem he's looking out for her interests, though.
