"Mistakes of My Youth" as written by Mark O. Everett and Jeffrey Scott Lyster....
In the waning days ahead,
I gotta look back down the road.
I know that it's not too late.
All the stupid things I've said,
And people I've hurt in my time.
I hope it's not my fate

To keep defeating my own self,
And keep repeating yesterday.
I can't keep defeating myself,
I can't keep repeating,
The mistakes of my youth.

In the dark of night, I might
Be able to make myself think
That I'm still a younger man.
But when the light of day shines down,
There's no way to get around it,
I'm not the younger man.

I keep defeating my own self,
And keep repeating yesterday.
I can't keep defeating myself,
I can't keep repeating,
The mistakes of my youth.

The choice is mine for making
A better road ahead
The road that I've been taking,
Headed for a dead-end,
But it's not too late to turn around

In the final moments
I hope that I know that I tried
To do best I could

To stop defeating my own self
And stop repeating yesterday.
I can't keep defeating myself,
I can't keep repeating,
The mistakes of my youth
