Best Mistake

Album: My Everything (2014)
Charted: 49
  • How soon do we forget, how we felt?
    Dealing with emotions, that never left
    Playing with the hand that we were dealt, in this game

    Maybe I'm the sinner, and you're the saint
    Gotta stop pretending, what we ain't
    Why we pointing fingers, anyway?
    When we're the same

    Break up
    Make up
    Total waste of time
    Can we please make up our minds
    And stop acting like we're blind?

    'Cause if the water dries up and the moon stops shining
    Stars fall, and the world goes blind, boy
    You know, I'll be savin' my love for you, for you

    'Cause you're the best mistake I've ever made
    But we hold on, hold on
    There's no pot of gold in the rainbows we chase
    But we hold on, hold on

    I guess time's wasting, tick tocking, lip locking
    How can we keep the feelings fresh, how do we zip lock it?
    Wear your heart up on your sleeves so watch out for pickpockets
    I guess to go the distance we might need to pit stop it
    Hold up, I know love could be a beach with no shore
    I done count to ten, lost my temper, and went back to four
    I know sometimes it's hard to realize I'm the man that you need
    I had a dream we branched out started a family tree
    And I feel like that everything we do is overdue
    You ask why I love your mom so much 'cause she's a older you
    I wish that you were happy I guess that's the one thing I should be providing
    Ain't no number twos, we both ones of ones and we the oddest
    Couple only humans 'cept you, you a goddess
    Only lying to you when I lie you down, just being honest
    When you start as friends it's hard to say you're never going back
    If I'm not the one then I'm the best mistake you ever had

    Break up
    Make up
    Total waste of time
    Can we please make up our minds?
    And stop acting like we're blind

    'Cause if the water dries up and the moon stops shining
    Stars fall, and the world goes blind boy
    You know, I'll be savin' my love for you, for you

    'Cause you're the best mistake I've ever made
    But we hold on, hold on
    There's no pot of gold in the rainbows we chase
    But we hold on, hold on

    You're, you're, you're, you're
    Mmm, I'll be savin' my love for you, for you

    You're, you're, you're, you're
    Mmm, I'll be savin' my love for you, for youWriter/s: DWANE WEIR II, BRITTANY CONEY, SEAN MICHAEL ANDERSON, ARIANA GRANDE, DENISIA ANDREWS
