The Little Things

One little mistake

Wiped my life away

Blew away my mind

Made me turn astray

I didn’t want to do it

But, man, in the heat of the moment

Things get rough, people forget

Just what they’re dealing with

Now this mistake lines

My life without parole

And I try to see how

I can fit into my role
