More Mark Heard: It's Not Your Fault

I get lonely sometimes It's not your fault I'm a woman who follows her own tracks until she's lost I'll keep on going round and round until I'm found I get wounded sometimes It's not your fault I keep on shooting arrows up until they fall They stall and turn, a narrow miss until I learn It's not you, I'll be okay, I'm just a jerk is all It's alright, it's just my foolishness It's not your fault I get helpless sometimes It's not your fault I just tend to tug on heartstrings til they break A thug who wins a kiss and misses finer things I get angry sometimes It's not your fault I let the molehill simmer like Vesuvius And hole up in Pompeii until all hell breaks loose It's not you, I'll be okay, I'm just a jerk is all It's alright, it's just my foolishness It's not your fault This was written and sung by Mark Heard. After his death it was re-released and sung by Ashley Cleveland. If you want to hear it, you can.
