Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)

  • I was I was I was
    Gonna say something that would solve all our problems
    But then I got drunk and I forgot what I was talking about
    I forgot what I was talking about
    Don't you, don't you, don't you know
    There's nothing more cruel than to be loved by everybody
    There's nothing more cruel than to be loved by everybody but you
    Than to be loved by everybody but you, but you

    If I can get my shit together
    I'm gonna run away and never see any of you again
    Never see any of you again

    I hope the roof flies off and I get blown out into space
    I always make such expensive mistakes
    I know it's just a number but you're the 8th wonder
    I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    When they make a darker color
    (Whoa, whoa)
    I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color

    Woke up on the wrong side of the paradise
    So when I say I'm sorry I'm late I wasn't showing up at all
    I really mean I didn't plan on showing up at all
    Don't you, don't you, don't you know
    I hate all my friends, I miss the days when I pretended
    I hate all my friends, I miss the days when I pretended with you
    I miss the days when I pretended with you, with you

    If I can get my shit together
    I'm gonna run away and never see any of you again
    Never see any of you again

    I hope the roof flies off and I get blown out into space
    I always make such expensive mistakes
    I know it's just a number but you're the 8th wonder
    I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    When they make a darker color
    Whoa, whoa
    I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    When they make a darker color
    Whoa, whoa
    I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color

    If we hadn't done this thing, I think I'd be a medicine man
    So I could get high on my own supply whenever I can
    And I became such a strange shape, such a strange shape from trying to fit in
    Yeah, I became such a strange shape, such a strange shape

    I hope the roof flies off and I get blown out into space
    I always make such expensive mistakes
    I know it's just a number but you're the 8th wonder
    I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    When they make a darker color
    Whoa, whoa
    I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    I'll stop wearing black when they make, when they make
    Whoa, whoa
    I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color Writer/s: Andrew Hurley, Joseph Trohman, Patrick Stump, Peter Wentz
