All The Same Mistakes

lyrics

I think words build up in you like steam
I mean, you drink each day like water
Your mind burns bright like fire
Hot and cold, they meet

I need nothing else but to be burned clean
I mean, you bring words I've longed for
Loud as a four part choir
Words like an opus, you speak

Don't wanna fall under
And make all of the same mistakes
Don't wanna fall under
And make all of the same mistakes
All the same mistakes

The world needs nothing else but to be made clean
I mean, she needs our dirt washed off her
The dirt's miles thick, yet you find her
Words like a shovel, you speak

Don't wanna fall under
And make all of the same mistakes
Don't wanna fall under
And make all of the same mistakes
All the same mistakes, all, all, all

Oh, I
Idolize
My mouth can't deny what I've
Said with my eyes
You're all around me
Angel you've found me
Heaven, surround me
And sing to me

hey

I made, I made, I, I, all the same mistakes
I made, I made, I made all the same mistakes
Don't wanna fall under
And make all of the same mistakes
Don't wanna fall under
And make all of the same mistakes
Oh, oh, I
Don't wanna fall under
I made all the same mistakes

about

Mieka Pauley Brooklyn, New York

Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris. ... more
