"Latest Mistake" as written by Mandy Moore and Lori Mckenna....
There is part of me that wants an answer
And part of me that doesn't want to know
Part of you that I am in love with
And the part that I am willing to let go

This is a delicate unraveling
Now and then I find pieces on the floor
Tiny little bits that tell me
Maybe I shouldn't do this
Or love you anymore

Someone's gonna have to fess up
Someone's gonna have to clean this mess up

[Chorus:]
'Cause I wanted you the first time
And I loved you from the second
And I don't know how that ever goes away
As far as I can tell
You're really good at talking
So I think its time you let me know
I'm just your latest mistake

I wonder what will make you happy
I wonder what you'll do with it all
I have a map in my head
Somehow still don't understand
Why I always have to miss you
Why I have to make the call

Someone's gonna have to step up
Someone's gonna have to clean this mess up

[Chorus]

Before you drive me away
Take a good look at me, baby
Picture me not lying on your couch
I wish the best for you
Everytime you go through this
Before you finally figure it out

[Chorus]

Oh, I'm your latest mistake

    General CommentHmmm...well i think this song is talking about someone who thinks they have been cheated on and they dont wanna ask because they are afraid of the answer...and the words latest mistake gives me the image of her being regretted by her lover.

    I think she is also telling a story on how ever hard it is, she knows she has to let go of her lover but doesn't want to...ah well I ent good at this but thats what I male of it...meh I cant this very well

    Good song though I have to say...I got the albumn now and its good music 2 relax 2.

    Any other ideas?

    General Commenti think its about a distnace that exists between her and her boyfriend - the relationship is falling apart and their waiting for that other shoe to drop
