Jaya The Cat – Mistake lyrics

Well I met her downtown at a trance party
I was crashing in the corner when she came up to me
Lit her cigarette she sat down we talked for a while
Said she was looking for someone to waste some time with
Time was all we had so we spent it like spare change
Emptied out our pockets at the bars by the fairway
Had a pretty good run before the end
Got out before it caught up man
And as the black and whites faded into grey
They say that you can never look back
But I didn't wanna anyway

You know that when I said I loved you well I musta been drunk
Because you're no one that I'd ever love
And when I exorcise my devils you're the first one gone
No use in looking for an answer now to what went wrong
And she said you know it's alright man
Some things they just turn out that way

Fifty cent beers in at the corner store
In a one room apartment on the 13th floor
Sleep all day until the night creeps in
Thru the open window to call us again
Responsibility got knifed in the back
Dumped in an alley and left for dead
But thru all the mistakes and the beautiful lies
That we told ourselves while we were blacking out
Somehow we made our way out
But sometimes I miss it still
They say you can't raise the dead
So raise your glass instead
That's just the way it is

And she said you know it's alright man
Some things they just turn out that way
And in the end it's just a mistake
That we had to make
