My mistake was to love you, girl
Love you, girl
My mistake was to give my all
Tell the world

First I had you in the palm of my hand
But I let you slip through like rain to sand
At the beginning when I didn't care
Like my own reflection, you were always there

My mistake was to love you, girl
Love you, girl
My mistake baby, give my all
Tell the world

You were sweeter than my very own skin
But what did I do for you, not a thing
In front of my friends, you broke me down
Since then darling it's hard to track you down

My mistake was to love you, boy
Love you, boy
My mistake was to give my all
Tell the world

Many a smile, you put on my face
But I paid dearly with the tears I taste
My tenderness made you cold, not sweet
'Cause if a girl loves you, you only call her weak

My mistake was to love you, boy
Love you, boy
My mistake was to give my all
Tell the world

My mistake was to love you, girl
Love you, girl
My mistake was to give my all
Tell the world

My mistake was to love you, girl
