Mistake Like Me

lyrics

MISTAKE LIKE ME

The flesh is weak, the mind is a fool
I’m a simple man in a world so cruel
I’m not blind but I can’t see
how a woman like you could ever happen to a guy like me

I confess some nights I dream
of manna flowing from the heavens and money growing on the trees
but even if all of this were real
still a woman like you could never happen to a guy like me

Now the walls may shake, the mountains will move
a politician backed into a corner might just tell the truth
strange things occur, indeed they do
but a mistake like would never happen to a woman like you

A couple atoms might fuse, the perfect couple might split
you may hear something sounds legit from a hypocrite
strange things occur, indeed they do
but a mistake like would never happen to a woman like you

Now there’s my T-shirt and jeans strewn all around your room
there’s your little black dress and your fancy red-sole shoes
every once in a while the moon will turn blue
and a mistake like me is gonna happen to a woman like you

every once in a while the moon will turn blue
and a mistake like me is gonna happen to a woman like you
