"North Star" as written by and Jason Molina....
you used to say i had what it takes
i think i did if you meant too little too late
i can tell by the looks that i'm gettin'
i made some big mistakes
and i thought you said i was great

shoot straight and give it my best try
i made my heart as hard as nails
that may be the way you live your life
but it's almost got me killed

darling i'm not giving in
that happened miles ago
i heard the north star saying
kid you're so lost even i can't bring you home

did you think that we were going to last
honey you know you don't have to answer that
half of that was my kind of joke
i don't remember which half

i didn't know how blue i'd get
i didn't know how i'd get blamed for it
i didn't choose to go down this road
no one chooses to be sick

i'm saying everything is fine
by the look in my eye
but you know darling
half of what a man says is a lie

it's your last chance to forget me now
that it's done for good
you always said i'd make it out
somehow darling i knew i never would
