best mistake lyrics – alteras

i’m trying hard to be a better man for everyone who is involved with me
(and i can’t take it and i can’t help that)
i wanted to be courageous, but i’m not yet

[chorus]
we both know i’m the best mistake you’ve made
one of us had to care for me
i don’t want to be happy
i can’t sleep without you, i’m wide awake
i don’t want to be happy
i don’t want to be afraid

i am a burden, i’m not what i seem
the weaker i get, the more worthless i’ll be
you tell me i’m strong, what the f-ck does that mean?
don’t tell me to listen, no one listens to me

the shirt on my back’s f-cking smothering me
your lips on my neck and i cannot breathe
the taste of smoke on my tongue is all i had back then
you breathed hope into my lungs and taught me to feel again

[chorus]
we both know i’m the best mistake you’ve made
one of us had to care for me
i don’t want to be happy
i can’t sleep without you, i’m wide awake
i don’t want to be happy
i don’t want to be afraid

[bridge]
i wanted to be the courageous person that i know i can be
(i’m afraid that i…)
i’m sorry for being ambitious but i didn’t want you to leave
(i’m afraid that i…)
i wanted to be the courageous person that i know i can be
(i’m afraid that i…)
i’m sorry for being ambitious but i didn’t want you to leave
(i wanted to be courageous, but i’m not yet)

[chorus]
we both know i’m the best mistake you’ve made
one of us had to care for me
i don’t want to be happy
i can’t sleep without you, i’m wide awake
i don’t want to be happy
i don’t want to be afraid

[outro]
i wanted to be the courageous person i know that i need to be
