"All My Mistakes" as written by and Timothy Seth Avett Scott Yancey Avett....
Shooting off vicious collections of words
The losers make facts by the things they have heard
And I find myself trying hard to defend them

I made decisions some right and some wrong
And I let some love go I wish wasn't gone
These things and more I wish I had not done

But I can't go back
And I don't want to
'Cause all my mistakes
They brought me to you

I have some "friends" they don't know who I am
So I write quotations around the word friends
But I have a couple that have always been there for me

And I missed some fun 'cause I worked through the dawn
Expecting your praise when I returned home
But I paid the cost 'cause I got left alone for the songs

But I can't go back
And I don't want to
'Cause all my mistakes
They brought me to you

    General CommentThe song shows a lot of perspective. The writer appreciates where he has been but appreciates more where he is now. A really beautiful song and it is easy to see how heartfelt the lyrics are once you see it performed live.

    General CommentI believe this song is a representation of everything that one sacrifices or gives up for their loved ones. Sometimes these sacrifices just happen with time, like all of the past loves and heartbreaks experienced before their loved one. But it is worth it in the end, because he found his love.
