A Beautiful Mistake

I do my thing the best that I can
I don't get freaked by what's not happening
O what I don't understand
I got my job and that pays the rent
I don't get half as paranoid as I used to get
I just put one foot in front of the other
Let the rest go by
Pick up my check and pay the man
And come home to my wife
I do my thing the best I can
And I'll tell you why

Because I've
Already done the rock and roll thing
Been to the top and crashed the whole thing
Gave all my songs to the creeps and Show Kings
But what a Beautiful Mistake I made

I finally changed what needed changing
Grew me the balls to beat the craving
Found me a girl to stop the raving
But what a Beautiful Mistake I made

I say my prayers, no I don't pretend
I'm not so foolish I don't think I can't
Fuck it up again
I still believe, I believe in us
Even though I blew the whole thing up
In technicolor once

And now my life's all out in the open
Everyone can see
I don't keep no secrets
Since the dragon fell asleep
I do my thing the best that I can
And I'll tell you why

Because I've
Already done the rock and roll thing
Been to the top and crashed the whole thing
Gave all my songs to the creeps and Show kings
But what a Beautiful Mistake I made

I finally changed what needed changing
Grew me the balls to beat the craving
Found me a girl to stop the raving
What a Beautiful Mistake I made

So I count my blessings up one by one
Get out of the rain get back in the sun
Cause everything i put together comes undone
So i guess I had to take to learning my lesson
Keeping you here not keeping you guessing
Cause everybodies welcome to my confession oh yeah
Baby it's been such a long road home...
