Biggest Mistake

Album: A Bigger Bang (2005)
Charted: 51
  • When love comes so late, it'll really hit hard
    It slams through the gate, it'll catch you off guard
    Everyone said, "What a perfect love match
    'Cause she is so smart, she's a hell of a catch"

    I was drinking in love, gulping it down
    Drifting for months on a billowing cloud
    But after awhile I stopped to rebel
    I'm back in the past and I'm raising up hell

    But I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
    And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

    We'd been living together for over a year
    The harmony's perfect, it rang loud and clear
    But then very slowly, my nerves start to fray
    The little things big, that's what they say

    I acted impatient, I acted unkind
    I took her for granted, I played with her mind
    She didn't deserve it but it was too late
    I walked out the door and left her to her fate

    But I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
    And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

    (Whoo Whoo Whoo...)
    Now I'm down in a slump and I'm eating alone
    I ruined the day with some friends on the phone
    I never go out, I'm becoming a grouch
    I just watch the TV and I drink on the couch

    But if love comes again, I'll be really surprised
    I'll grab it real fast, keep it right in my sights

    'Cause I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
    Well I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life Writer/s: KEITH RICHARDS, MICK JAGGER
