lyrics

Mistakes


These are mistakes that you can't keep yourself from making
Those eggs you're eating you had no intent of breaking
You thought the omelette of your dreams
Would always justify the means
And that a home's the place where you will bring the bacon
Such are mistakes that you were brought up to be making

These are mistakes you just can't stop yourself from making
Your garden gate is a disgrace the paint is flaking
You'd think the neighbours sympathise
But they are all so organised
You slipped on leaves that you could not be bothered raking
You laugh it off but your own kids can see you're faking

Then there's mistakes you'd rather not remember making
You ran the lights because you didn't feel like braking
And once again you got away
You thought you'd always be okay
They always told you that the world was for the taking
That's one mistake you shouldn't blame yourself for making

One more mistake you couldn't keep yourself from making
The signs were there, and there was really no mistaking
You weren't really that naive
But it felt better to believe
Now every time you watch the news your brain is aching
That's one mistake we won't forgive ourselves for making
