    "Life By Mistake" Lyrics

    Del Amitri

    So you were right when you said I was just a fake
    You just got used and when you're used you're thrown away
    Look at me now, look at the lines upon my face
    And look at my crowd, haven't we all lived like it's a race?

    And there are times I sense the trails of pain I leave
    When over the road there hangs
    Those springtime lynching trees

    Just look around, everyone's acting the same way
    In a playground town where we can all live like it's a race
    Where we can all live for we can take

    But haven't we all lived life by mistake?

    And haven't we all chased time
    Like a paper cup down the street and up the stairs?
    And haven't we all found the door is shut
    And the keys are everywhere, in this life by mistake?

    And there are moments when the heavens open wide
    When you can hold your dreams and see your future bright
    Look at me now, haven't I tried to do what's right?

    The way I know how, I have acquired my life like a taste
    And I have tried to live the right way
    But I have lived my life by mistake
