"Honest Mistake" as written by Ryan O'connor, Seth James Johnson and Daniel James Stevens....
The room gets cold
As she slowly paces back and forth
She says, "What have I done now?
It was a time well spent"
Did she really mean it when she said
"It's all a game we're playing
All of the words we say"?

I guess in a way
You were an honest mistake
When the love that you give's not the love that you take
I guess in a way
You were an honest mistake
When the love that you give's not the love that you take

And I should've known better
Than to believe in someone I couldn't trust
I just got caught up in lies
I always knew that you would be the one to leave
I guess this is how this how it has to be

Stood like an empty shell
Fighting off the shakes
She goes on, baby
Livin' it up
Pleased to meet yourself
It's been longer than enough
It's all a game we're playing
All of the words we fake

I guess in a way
You were an honest mistake
When the love that you give's not the love that you take

And I should've known better
Than to believe in someone I couldn't trust
I just got caught up in lies
I always knew that you would be the one to leave
I guess this is how this how it has to be (x2)

I guess in a way
You were an honest mistake
When the love that you give's not the love that you take (x3)

I guess in a way
You were an honest mistake
When the love that you give's not the love

This is how this how it has to be
This is how this how it has to be

And I should've known better
Than to believe in someone I couldn't trust
I just got caught up in lies
I always knew that you would be the one to leave
I guess this is how this how it has to be (x2)

    General CommentWell, I think the meaning is pretty clear, but I just wanted to say that Danny's voice is absolutely amazing on this song. I really hope that The Audition starts to get more of the recognition that they deserve :D
