Same Ol' Mistakes

  • I can just hear them now
    "How could you let us down?"
    But they don't know what I found
    Or see it from this way around
    Feeling it overtake
    All that I used to hate
    Worried 'bout every trait
    I tried but it's way too late
    All the signs I don't read
    Two sides of me can't agree
    When I breathe in too deep
    Going with what I always longed for

    Feel like a brand new person (but you make the same old mistakes)
    I don't care I'm in love (stop before it's too late)
    Feel like a brand new person (but you make the same old mistakes)
    I finally know what is love (you don't have what it takes)
    (Stop before it's not too late)
    (I know there's too much at stake)
    (Making the same mistakes)
    And I still don't know why it's happening
    (Stop while it's not too late) And I still don't know

    Finally taking flight
    I know you don't think it's right
    I know that you think it's fake
    Maybe fake's what I like
    Point is I have the right
    I'm thinking in black and white
    Thinking it's worth the fight
    Soon to be out of sight
    Knowing it all this time
    Going with what I always longed for

    Feel like a brand new person (but you make the same old mistakes)
    I don't care I'm in love (stop before it's too late)
    Feel like a brand new person (but you make the same old mistakes)
    I finally know what is love (you don't have what it takes)
    (Stop before it's too late)

    Man, I know that it is hard to digest
    But maybe this story ain't so different from the rest
    And I know it seems wrong to accept
    But you've got your demons, and she's got her regrets
    And I know that it's hard to digest
    A realization is as good as a guess
    And I know it seems wrong to accept
    But you've got your demons, and she's got her regrets
    But you've got your demons, and she's got her regrets

    Feel like a brand new person
    So how will I know that it's right?
    In a new direction
    So how will I know I've gone too far?
    Stop thinking you're the only option (feel like a brand new person)
    I finally know what it's like
    Stop thinking you're the only option, oh (in a new direction)
    So how will I know I've gone too far?
    Stop thinking you're the only option (feel like a brand new person)
    And I don't know how to describe

    (Stop before it's too late)
    Stop thinking you're the only option
    (But you make the same old mistakes)
    (You don't have what it takes)
    (Stop before it's too late)
    Stop thinking you're the only option

    (But you make the same old mistakes)
    I finally know what it's like (stop before it's too late)
    Stop thinking you're the only option
    Stop thinking you're the only option Writer/s: Kevin Parker
