Mike Posner – Buried In Detroit (The Truth ) Lyrics

(Verse 1)
I’m a writer and a lover
I’m a Midwest music man
And I’ve been to a lot of places
But I’m gon end where I began
I took class in Carolina
Got high smoking joints
And now they know my name in Paris

But I’ll be buried in Detroit
Next to my father, and my father’s father too
I used to live in New York City
But baby that ain’t no substitute
Not for my hometown
That place people avoid
I’ve made love in every city
But I’ll be buried in Detroit

(Verse 2)
I don’t claim to be a prophet
I just speak my mind
I try to tell it like it is
And sometimes God makes it rhyme

I like my songs how I like my women
Honest and to the point
You see I got f**ked up in Stockholm

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 3)
You know I ain’t gon live forever
Baby it won’t be long
At the wake they’ll say He made a lot of mistakes
But he could write hell of a song

And I made, I made killing
Though I never really was employed
I had a girl from San Diego

(Repeat Chorus)
