Heard you call my name
While I'm casting out
The mistake I've made
It can't be turned around

I took the easy way out
I took the easy way out
I took the easy way out

I went one for one
Before passing out.
The mistake I've made,
It can't be turned around, no.

I took the easy way out
I took the easy way out
I took the easy way out

I want to feel something again, memorable
I want to feel something again, memorable

I want to feel something again, memorable
I want to feel something again, memorable

    General CommentNearly perfect, however, in both verses, instead of it being, "the mistake(s) I've made," it is, in fact, "The Mistake I've made." It doesn't seem like a huge change, but it changes the entire outcome of the song.

    Instead of it now sounding as though the narrator is speaking about rough patches that he can't change in his life, it sounds as though he's overdosed on some type of drug, and he's saying it's too late. This was a mistake, but it's a mistake that I can't change, aka I took the easy way out and gave up. He's dying.
