"(Down by the) Great Mistake" as written by and Peter Holsapple....
He: I never felt so close to you.
She: I never been so far away.
He: And I know what you're going through...
She: So is that all you can say to me? Is that all you can say to me?

He: I used to know you when.
She: But you turned your back on me.
He: I just got turned around myself...
She: Then what do you expect of me? Just what do you expect of me?

They: It's a crazy world we live in,
It's a crazy road we take.
We could walk this way blinfolded, down by the Great Mistake.

She: You used to be my hero, boy, 'til you parked the car in the lake.
He: That wasn't strictly my idea, you know. I parked
down by the Great Mistake.
She: You should've used your emergency brake.

They: There'll be a lot of compromisin',
And if that don't sound enticing,
Your money ain't no good here, down by the Great Mistake.

He: I think it's gonna work out just fine.
She: You can think that way if you like.
He: What would make you say a thing like that?
She: I'm not sayin' anything. I'm not sayin' anything.

They: There'll be a lot of compromisin',
And if that don't sound inviting,
We can walk this way blinfolded, down by the Great Mistake.
