Manchester Orchestra – The Mistake lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don't want to die alone
Tell me there's another option for me
Standing like I should have known
I knew you'd accidentally look right inside of me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
There's nothing anybody could say
There was nothing anybody could do
You made up your absent mind
And now the rest of us are here to amuse you

[Chorus]
Everybody I know makes the same mistakes
Packaged up in different boxes, masking shame

[Verse 1]
Laying on the carpet spilt
You told me you were fairly sure that you'd marry him
Embryonic accidents, a native knife, you gotta finally bury it

[Pre-Chorus 2]
There's nothing anybody could say
There was nothing anybody could do
Everybody's got their day
So number wisely if you know what's best for you, man

[Chorus]
Everybody I know makes the same mistakes
Packaged up in different boxes, masking shame

[Bridge]
I don't want to walk away from you
I don't want to walk away from you
I don't want to walk away from you
I don't want to walk away, but you let me

[Outro]
And now the wheels are falling off of the car
Beside the hundred meter grave in the yard
Everybody here feels sorry for us
