a n o t h e r   m i s t a k e

met you drinking at the bar

started dancing after midnight

we had fun but

i saw the sadness in your eyes

wouldn't let this go too far

just a decent kiss in half-light

too obvious that you were

a broken-hearted in disguise

i won't come with you tonight

your wounds are fresh and deep

won't exploit your mood tonight

i don't think that's what you need

 

don't wanna be another mistake that you make

well, i'm not that kinda guy, so i won't take

the chance to come with you tonight

tempting as it may seem

hope to see you then one day

with a little self-esteem

if you wanna waste yourself

only to receive attention

you are here and free to play

but i won't join your game

bet you underrate yourself

heading for some bad decisions

messin' around because this dork broke up

it's a shame

i won't come with you tonight

your wounds are fresh and deep

won't exploit your mood tonight

i don't think that's what you need

don't wanna be another mistake that you make

well, i'm not that kinda guy, so i won't take

the chance to come with you tonight

tempting as it may seem

hope to see you then one day

with a little self-esteem

it won't heal your wounds, you see

well, i see your desperation

and it's not attractive

and as long as you don't feel

unambigiously better

i will not be there

for one night affair

 

don't wanna be another mistake that you make

well, i'm not that kinda guy, so i won't take

the chance to come with you tonight

tempting as it may seem

hope to see you then one day

with a little self-esteem
