Cartel - The Perfect Mistake Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
Wake me up, I’ve been dreaming
It feels just like any other day-
I sit you down, here goes nothing.
And you’re not gonna like what I say
Get out, oh just get out.

[Chorus:]
“Get Up, Get Out”
That’s what she said, “You drive me crazy.”
“I can’t believe that’s what you did.”
“And don’t call me baby.”
And I know I’m wrong, I knew all along that you’d find out,
I’m the perfect mistake, I’m hoping you’ll make right now.

[Verse 2:]
Wake me up, I’ve been dreaming,
Because I haven’t heard from you in days.
Hazy now, this fog just follows me around,
And it’s only you that burns it away.
So get out, oh just get out.

[Chorus:]
“Get Up, Get Out”
That’s what she said, “You drive me crazy.”
“I can’t believe that’s what you did.”
“And don’t call me baby.”
And I know I’m wrong, I knew all along that you’d find out,
I’m the perfect mistake, I’m hoping you’ll make right now.

[Bridge:]
I see your face, every time I close my eyes,
Its getting worse you say, it comes as no surprise.

Why am I hell bent on losing, when I can’t get you out of my head?

[Chorus:]
“Get Up, Get Out”
That’s what she said, “You drive me crazy.”
“I can’t believe that’s what you did.”
“And don’t call me baby.”
And I know I’m wrong, I knew all along that you’d find out,
I’m the perfect mistake, I’m hoping you’ll make right now.

Oh I’m the perfect mistake, I’m hoping you’ll make right now-
Oh you’ll make right now.

  17. Gabriel Ynsfran

    what happened with the band?

    Filipe Silva

    i don't know, anyone know what happened with the band?

    Doggie Treats

    They stopped making music after the bare essentials album. However the lead singer Will still writes music and you can even pay for him to write you a song.

  18. Elijah Smith

    I heard this song at six flags magic mountain. And it's sill my favorite song

  19. Liz Mitchell

    this band makes my heart swell

    I didn't know Caspar Lee was in a band! lol

  27. reiddajuiceman

    I didn't know Caspar Lee was in a band! lol

  28. Timothy Miller

    I sometimes question the signing to Wind Up but at the same time I really enjoy this album because of the beefiness with the instruments. It's poppy yet heavy to a certain extent. Not sure if this was their choice or if the label was involved to some degree, but I like this.

  29. Alyssawanders

    ughhh i miss hs <3

  30. Timmy McClelland

    if in the end he got redeemed and they made out, or made up it would have been better

    Mido Ban

    I think he was heading on the bed. Well, a smile between the couple would have been better...

  31. Just Barking

    Sound cloud please

  32. Iqbal Pratama

    keep it up, cartel! i love you guys!!

  33. Desiree Burns

    they are my go to throw back band

    i love Cartel...My favorite band by a long-shot!

  35. micheal peters

    agreed! lol

  36. kyeoptawerk93

    i've been going on a huge middle school/high school music memory lane recently and god it feels great going back to all these old songs!

    Kat Santarromana

    I've been doing the same

    Kat Santarromana

    I've been doing the same

    Kat Santarromana

    I've been doing the same

    Rezh Fajardo

    Was doing the same and it made me cringe so much remembering how much of an edgelord I was xD

    Will Shrake

    Oh god this is "old" to you?

  37. ーjhpe

    haven't listened to them in 5 years it's been too long

  38. titaniumpecker

    Unoriginal, derivative, wannabe hipster band. How about trying something different instead of trying to sound like all the "popular" bands?

    Yair Valenzuela

    +titaniumpecker wannabe hipster!? not even close, man.. and these guys have been around for years, doing their own thing. fuck off.

    snstr

    This song is 5 years old...

    Sarah Brinker

    +titaniumpecker any band who pursues in music does it because 1, they love it and 2, they want to be heard and well known. another point, this is pop punk. like green day, new found glory, fall out boy, blink 182, all time low, mayday parade, and many more. if you don't like this music then back the fuck off and listen to your own music.

    gubba987

    what a fucking idiot these guys have been around for the longest 😂

    Adam Feuring

    You're fucking high

  39. Ahmad Arangale

    3 Guitar players... Now wonder, the sound is so beautifully heavy...

    Austin Exum

    the heavy sound comes from the drop C# tuning and the tone of the bass.

    Ahmad Arangale

    oh... so that's why it sounds like that.  I've noticed that in a lot of punk bands.  They tune down half step and the top string to C#.  Now I know why.  Will it sound as good on acoustic?

    Ahmad Arangale

    @Austin Exum oh... so that's why it sounds like that.  I've noticed that in a lot of punk bands.  They tune down half step and the top string to C#.  Now I know why.  Will it sound as good on acoustic?

    Austin Exum

    +Ahmad Arangale I don't see why it won't. I know plenty of drop C songs on acoustic, so C# should be fine.

    Ahmad Arangale

    @Austin Exum really? Can you give me a list of those songs? And another thing drop C means the tuning is in full step down except for the E string that's turned down to C. Correct? Or is it in standard then E string turned down to C?

  40. Mary Buschmann

    Why isn't this song on iTunes!?

    seventhseance

    It is....I purchased it a few days ago.....

  41. BabyDidABadBadThing

    Will is gorgeous!

  42. MACtv

    This is one of my all time fav songs is crazy they never got any radio play for this. All these years later and I still have to play it three times to get enough.

    Fineapple Qveen

    I discovered this song via like kiss fm...so they definitely got radio play. Ugh i just can't believe it's been 5 years since this song came out!!

    erin knight

    Thats how i am with their song "say anything else"

  43. Itz Meee

    I thank pamaj for bringing me here!, such an amazing band!

    snstr

    Same. I heard one song from them in a montage when BO2 was in its prime and I've been addicted since then

  44. myles sonson

    Man I love this band already and I just started listening to them a view minutes ago

    My Friends Call Me Lou

    Check out the In Stereo ep. Awesome

  45. Jesus_the_frog42

    These guys never got their time to shine, which sucks. Anyway, great song!

    Sarah Brinker

    +Jesus_the_frog42 they are absolutely amazing in concert.

  46. Aubrey

    Will is so hot omg

    Cat Laugh

    +Sarah H I don't see many comments regarding him. I've met him a couple of times, nice guy.

    Sarah Brinker

    +Cat Sykes I think it is just one of those thinks where people just pay attention to will. annoying in my opinion. I saw him once and he was very sweet

    Cat Laugh

    +Sarah H yeah usually the lead singers get most of the attention, what are ya gonna do? But yeah i hardly ever see Nic unless he comes in town, which isnt that often for me, but usually whenever he's here I go and see him and hang out for a little.

    Sarah Brinker

    +Cat Sykes I've only seen him once when I went to a new found glory concert and cartel opened for them. I'd love to see them again though. new found glory is one of those bands that you can't love just one musician. lol

    Cat Laugh

    +Sarah H oh yeah, cool, cool. Never really got into NFG, listened to a few songs but it never stuck with me.

  47. 1295candi

    This song was amazing in concert. <3

  48. nicole zielinski

    I love them I dont listen to them to much so when I do listen its like refreshing <3 

  49. Kay Luv

    Use to be ol obsessed with this song back in middle school

  50. Aaliyah Coyre

    This song is freaking great to me like I don't see how it's 2014 and this video still doesn't have a million views smh

    Cristian Coronado

    because where not in the mainstream and it feels great

    Quinn

    @cristian coronado I don't want to be in the mainstream tbh

    Jacob Gibson

    Lol probably because cartel is like, the most under rated band ever

  51. ker0sene

    Ahhh, memories <3

  52. Daniel Grooms

    That dude just rips on his guitar, I love that part! 1:01

    Cat Laugh

    Nic can really play

    Noelis Aponte

    +Cat Laugh yeah :-)

    Joshua Vickruck

    Just listened to the song, clicked 1:01 and had to listen all the way through again XD too awesome!

    Daniel Grooms

    2:01 is another good one. Got the whole band. Dude ripping through the strings about to break em, afro guy got the headbang on point, and the bald guy slappin the bass like the dirty bitch it is

  53. IllStayGoldForever22

    Girls = super pissy. Always.

    My Friends Call Me Lou

    Yall got that right!

  54. Jack Hinrichs

    their best song imo

  55. Joey Molloy

    this was the first song by these guys i heard. (first song they played on glamour kills tour) i instatly fell in love :)

  56. AmethystMario

    New favorite song.

  57. John Gregory

    please check out my video i worked really hard on it but i need unbiased feedback. its nuthing fancy but its a pop punk song i worked on
    /watch?v=It_wmGclhB0&feature=youtu.be

  58. Jackiewashere18

    I probably wouldn't like them as much if they had a different lead singer for some reason I really like his voice

  59. akelahb94

    Thank you best player!!

  60. 360TRiiCKZ

    Blink 182 and All Time Low have absolutely no resemblance in lyrics or instruments.

  61. imranr

    Call it what you want - it's terrible either way

  62. Diana Martini

    Let's thank the female co-star for forgetting her pants!

  63. Angie Tolentino

    Ah nostalgia. <34

  64. Cody Burke

    green day was just punk though.

  65. Jesse Bagby

    umm... sorry, no. There were dozens of Pop punk bands before them. Heard of Green Day? That was '94

  66. Cody Burke

    they started off before pop punk was even considered a thing.

  67. TheVekRidProject

    Pretty close to pop punk yo.. Instuments not to hard to play, typical high pitched voice, lyrics resemble those of pop punk lyrics. so yeah id consider it pop/punk. Pop/Punk is basically all i listen to.. New Found Glory, Blink 182, All time low, Etc.. and this sounds alot like those bands.. sooo :P

  68. Bluecomet489

    if youre serious then youre retarded

  69. 360TRiiCKZ

    LOL this is definitely NOT pop punk...

  70. PegLegMcBritches

    I will never tire of hearing this song.

  71. yermom1699

    Well in that case:

    Oh my God, Will Pugh is SOO cute.

  72. smatzke1

    As a hetero male, even I think he is a good looking dude....so, no.

  73. Grimreaperb19

    Yup same xD

  74. Blahooper

    Every five minutes .___.

  75. yermom1699

    ...is anyone gonna judge me if I make a "Will is cute" comment?

  76. iPolarBears

    I listened to this and the remix...i can't tell the difference

  77. Giovanni Rivera

    Lol. That's why I am here. X3

  78. Bostaffninja88

    Labels are for soup cans. Music is what this is. Kick ass music more specifically.

  79. Brianna Lenneman

    I'm so glad they're on your

  80. Diana Martini

    The song's only 3 years old!

  81. diva sweet

    awesome dude! lol

  82. Natalie Uriodain

    OMG I DID NOT KNOW THE LEAD SINGER WAS THAT FUCKING HOT HOLY LORD!!!

  83. JulianGS1425

  84. Tucker J

    it's bands like this that make me wish the realy mtv was back...

  85. barkley182

    Am I the only person that thinks he should have said 'mind' instead of 'head', 2:31 into it?? Lol GREAT SONG THO!!!!!!

  86. chewyontheoutside

    Isn't this closer to pop-rock than punk?

  87. Orangesoda319

    He is so sexy i wish i could see them live!

  88. Kendall

    How did I never notice their lead singer was extremely attractive?

  89. AJ Troxell

    Maybe punk rock by a lesser definition, but still good.

  90. Dakota Lee

    Zach was my perfect mistake - punk girl

  91. TrixR4kids876

    @vartuss You call rap not throwing random words togethor?

  92. seahawksfannick

    Being a fan of Cartel brought me here! Probably their most famous song, and a good one at that. If you like it, you should really check out their albums. Most bands have songs I don't like and and I end up having to cut them, but so far every song of theirs I've heard, I really like. Check em out!

  93. YourmyBFF12

    They played this song at Six Flags and it was great.

  94. Kenya

    Six flags line for V2 bought me here. Couldn't get it out of my head!
