[Hook]
My mistakes are made by me
Your mistakes are made by you
What ever you do you gotta make it through
What ever you say you gotta mean it too
Don't bother say if it ain't true
That goes for me and that goes for you
My mistakes are made by me
Your mistakes are made by you

[Verse1]
My mistakes were made by me
Your mistakes were made by you
You can't learn from one mistake you'll make two then three
It don't stop, the future looks bright but it's not
About' Wot Wot Wot
You've lost it ya might as well Stop Stop Stop
But one mistake I made is the reason why it took long for me to get up to the top
So, now I'm here I'm thinking about me
For what I'm worth I could make so much P
Sometimes I think that I shoulda stayed with the same manager
That I had back in 03, simply cos' Cage knows me
But I'm glad that I left now I got a whole tree of family emcees in the
G-R-I-M-E
Wiley that's me, Dun' know!

[Hook]

[Verse2]
I know I make wrong decisions
People try telling me but I wont listen
So stubborn cos no I wont give in
God, the mistakes I made ya know...
Man I just thought of livin
You do what I do but somethin so different
So I'm just wonderin is it, because I deserve it
Or is it a way of learning
Cos I wont learn if I don't live it
In hindsight...
I couldnt of got it right the first time
Cos I was just learning the first time
So I gotta make sure that I get it right for the next time
Cos a mistake is only that if you make it twice
Mistakes that I've made have helped me in life
I took wrong turns... now I gotta listen and learn
So I've gotta make things right!

[Hook]

[Verse3]
Aight listen, yeah yeah yeah yeah

I've made so much mistakes in my short life
If your smart you'll learn from mine
I tell my little bro, stick to your school work, he don't listen he'll learn in time
And I've seen what you earn from crime
But my pops there most of his life, inside, so I picked up the mic and turned on grime
I even learn from grime
And I'll learn from mistakes when my days done
You can learn from yours or stay dumb
Y'all move with a fake buds
But I gotta be careful I seen what a stray done
Your mistakes were made by you
And my mistakes were made by me
But don't try and play like me
Because you might not have the art to stay like me

[Hook]

[Outro]
Aight were in the studio ya know, look out the window there's 3 skyscrapers
So that means somethings about to get built up
Empire
Big Dadda/Ninja Tune
Eskii B Recordings
Dun' know the myspace
