"Northstar Blues" as written by and Jason Molina....
where were the rest of my songs tonight?
i only remember the north star blues
simple old song, a stage each night
marking the time that i lost you

no one should forgive me
i knew what i stood to lose
i'm better off now
just forgettin' how i came to have
the north star blues

how can i be the only one
whose life can't live up to its life
how can i be the only one
whose heart refuses to try

(repeat)

    General CommentIt's about trying to play a show, where all these people paid money to see you play your songs, and the only song you want to sing is this cover that you grew up with, fell in love with, patterned your life after, which you finally understand what it's saying and finally think you earned the right to sing. Oh, and the girl just broke you silly.

    Where were the rest of my songs tonight
    I only remember the North Star blues
    That simple old tune on the stage each night
    Marking the time that I lost you
    No one should forgive me
    I knew what I stood to lose
    Am I better off now
    just forgetting how
    I came to earn the North Star blues
    How can I be the only one
    Whose life can’t live up to the lie
    How can I be the only one
    Whose heart refuses to try
    No one should forgive me
    I knew what I stood to lose
    Am I better off now
    just forgetting how
    I came to have the North Star blues
    How can I be the only one
    Whose life can’t live up to the lie
    How can I be the only one
    Whose heart refused to try
