lyrics

(A song about a state of mind)
It wasn't all that long ago
I was crawling down the interstate
I had a smile on my face
I was full of bile and hate

All I needed was shelter
Somewhere to clear my head
Don't ya know I turned right back around
When I saw the sign ahead

Ohio---Ohio---
If I had my way baby
I'd never go back to you

Ohio---Ohio---
If I had my way darlin'
I'd never go back to you

When we kissed by Lake Erie
I never felt so high
But when you started running 'round
I truly wanted to die

Some love is meant to be
Others better left unsaid
Our love was high in the middle
And it was round on both ends

Ohio---Ohio---
If I had my way baby
I'd never go back to you

Ohio---Ohio---
If I had my way darlin'
I'd never go back to you

There we were at the edge of the world
And you’re begging me to come back
Close my eyes and spin around
One step forward and six steps back

And if I find myself on 75
Heading south towards Toledo
I'd rather drive back around the world
Yeah, I'm taking the long way home

Ohio---Ohio---
If I had my way baby
I'd never go back to you

Ohio---Ohio---
If I had my way darlin'
I'd never go back to you

No, I'll never go back to you
