last mistake lyrics – augustana

“last mistake”

headlights on the highway burning out the midnight sun
i’m not waiting for the one to come down
time you wasted looking for the diamonds in the rough
when you know it’s not enough to go ’round

well, you’re only as good as your last mistake
you’re only as right as the wrong you make
you can run, and you run, and you run, but you’ll never escape
you’ll never escape

hiding in the faces of the people left behind
in your soul and in my mind, in the ground
living in the memories of the years that p*ss us by
where our demons go to die, in the ground

well, you’re only as good as your last mistake
yeah, you’re only as right as the wrong you make
you can run, and you run, and you run, but you’ll never escape

you can come a little closer, but i would wait
you can try a little harder, but never in vain
you can wait a little longer and find a way
but you’re only as good as your last mistake

yeah, you’re only as good as your last mistake
you’re only as right as the wrong you make
you can run, and you run, and you run, but you’ll never escape
yeah, you’ll never escape
