i went back to ohio
but my family was gone.

the pretenders
my city was gone

i ask where she’s headed
she tells me, “ohio, i’ve not seen my mother in ages
it’s been a long timea real long time.

damien jurado

i took her by her golden curls
and drug her down to the river-side
and there i threw her into drown
and i watched her as she floated down

johnny cash & june carter
banks of ohio

what if you knew her
and found her dead on the ground,
how can you run when you know?

crosby stills nash & young
four dead in ohio

sorry that
i could never love you back
i could never care enough
in these last days

sun kil moon
carry me ohio

our hearts are used up
cracked and dry
pulled the scabs off of regrets
we haven’t learned to read our conscience yet
truly sorry, i see clearly

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
