(O. Jean)

All the mistakes I've made
I drag them ball and chain
I'll need an alibi
Until the day I die

I was punished for loving someone out of my reach
The jury didn't know we were as thick as thieves
And as I get dizzy questioning what I've done wrong
The accusations go on and go on and go on
This is a Shakespearean kind of ordeal
The girl's got no worth - she must be out to steal
So they put my name on the black list and said,
Wanted alive or dead

All the mistakes I've made
I drag them ball and chain
I'll need an alibi
Until the day I die

A chain reaction started by fallacy
Caused everyone I trust to abandon me
Cursed to repent for good -
The guilt will never be gone
The reparations go on and go on and go on
I can't be convinced my innocence is lost
But at their expense I still pay the cost
The road to redemption never ceases to grow
You've got miles to go

All the mistakes I've made
I drag them ball and chain
I'll need an alibi
Until the day I die

I will grow old shedding bitter tears
Paralyzed by love throughout all my years
What I once admired I allude from afar
Unfair consequences have left me scarred
All I ever wanted was to love
But in this crowd you must push and shove
And hide away your heart and change your name
To escape the shame

All the mistakes I've made
I drag them ball and chain
I'll need an alibi
Until the day I die

Throw it all away,
Throw it all away,
Throw it all away.
