"Soul Mistake" as written by Michael Hutchence and Andrew Charles Farriss....
Promises are carved out of lust
With a fire in the heart
That burns with no regret
I vow to play the part

In this a meeting of the soul
My feelings are unknown
I learn with no regret
I'm getting what I get

Feel some pain though I'm miles away
And ring to let you know
Are you seeing someone
I'd better let you go

She said this was a lesson in love
She said this was a love to end all loves
This soul never listens to me
This soul has a lot to learn

Honesty eludes one and all
Like some gypsy's search for gold
He's dreaming all the time
But the gold is hard to find

Made a mistake with myself
My lover couldn't lie
She told me of the things
That made her cry inside

Having the dreams of some gypsy
More Inxs Lyrics

    General Commentshe said: this was a lesson in love
    she siad: this was a love to end all loves...

    deconstructively, there is ambiguity. these lyrics could go either way. all i know is that this song can be very painful to listen to.

    General Commentthis song mesmerizes me :) ... i have an idea of what it could be about, but i have such a hard time translating INXS songs sometimes -- many of them could be about so many things. if my translation is correct, i view it as a man in a long distance relationship.
