The Mistake

2014

Lyrics

One more kiss before you go
One more touch the way we used to know
Just one last embrace, the gate's about to close...
Is it over...?

One last glance before you're gone
How did it come to this, it feels so wrong
If I had only known the things that I know now...
That I just can't live without you

It's our first mistake
That we had to say goodbye, turn our lives into a lie
It's my worst mistake...
Being without you

One more drink to make me numb
There's nothing left for me to carry on
It's one great big charade that guides me through the years...
Now it's over...

One last step before I go
The bridge I built for us is about to blow...
Just one final wish, the train is gonna come
Guess I'm better off dead without you

It's our first mistake
That we had to say goodbye, turn our lives into a lie
It's my worst mistake...
Without you

We learned the hard way, we were young and we were blind
But I still
wear your ring 'til the day I die

(Solo)

Guess I'm better off dead without you

It's my worst mistake
It turned my life into a lie, from the day we said goodbye
It's my worst mistake
Being far away from you, ripped my heart out, torn in two
Life's a big mistake...
Without you...

Robby talks about The Mistake

The song is about the event where it started to go downhill in my personal life. The lyrics are clear enough, they’re literal. One of the favorite rock ballads I wrote. It was only a bonus track on Falling Down In Misanthropolis and I felt it needed to be exposed better.
