"Biggest Mistake" as written by and Mick Jagger Keith Richards....
When love comes so late, it'll really hit hard
It slams through the gate, it'll catch you off guard
Everyone said, "What a perfect love match
'Cause she is so smart, she's a hell of a catch"

I was drinking in love, gulping it down
Drifting for months on a billowing cloud
But after awhile I stopped to rebel
I'm back in the past and I'm raising up hell

But I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

We'd been living together for over a year
The harmony's perfect, it rang loud and clear
But then very slowly, my nerves start to fray
The little things big, that's what they say

I acted impatient, I acted unkind
I took her for granted, I played with her mind
She didn't deserve it but it was too late
I walked out the door and left her to her fate

But I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

(Whoo Whoo Whoo...)
Now I'm down in a slump and I'm eating alone
I ruined the day with some friends on the phone
I never go out, I'm becoming a grouch
I just watch the TV and I drink on the couch

But if love comes again, I'll be really surprised
I'll grab it real fast, keep it right in my sights

'Cause I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
Well I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

    General CommentHe realized too late that he actually loved the girl and full of regret because he treated her so bad. He was never in love before so he wasnt sure if it was love for her that he had but know that she's gone and because he's feeling so bad he know's for sure now that it was love. he won't make that mistake again.

    General CommentObviously about Jerry Hall, he cheated on and got some model pregnant, after 22 years! And that to Mick is the biggest mistake of his life.
    Fantastic song!
