Last Shadow Puppets, The - My Mistakes Were Made For You Lyrics




About as subtle as an earthquake, I know,
My mistakes were made for you.
And in the backroom of the bad dream, she came,
And whisked me away, enthused.

And it's as solid as a rock rolling down a hill,
The fact is that it probably will hit something,
On the hazardous terrain.

And we're just following the flock,
Around and in-between,
Before we're smashed to smithereens
Like they were, then we scramble from the blame
And it's the fame that put words in her mouth,
She couldn't help, but spit them out.
Innocence and arrogance entwined,
In the filthiest of minds.

She was bitten on her birthday,
And now a face in the crowd, she's not.
And I suspected now forever the shape
She came to escape, is forgot.

And it's a lot to ask her not to sting.
And give her less than everything;
Around your crooked conscious she will wind.

And we're just following the flock,
Around and in-between,
Before we're smashed to smithereens
Like they were, and we scrambled from the blame.
And it's the fame that put words in her mouth,
She couldn't help but spit them out
Around your crooked conscious she will wind.

And it's a lot to ask her not to sting,
And give her less than everything
Innocence and arrogance entwined.

    Very nice song, it sounds like it was made in the '70s!

  11. dodo yoyo

    11 years ago.
    Time flies.
    I feel so old.

  12. dilara dilaraaa

    Perfect just perfect..

  13. Mirco Papa

    This song sounds like an anticipation of what would happen on TBHC by AM

  14. Zor08 Din.

    I'm thinking of a man.
    Remember him whispering that song..
    Hope that in the deepest of his mind he was dedicating it to me..

  15. None Noone

    Men write about your women, song, poem, music anything art. Be a man

    About as subtle as an earthquake, I know
    My mistakes were made for you

    And in the back room of a bad dream, she came
    And whisked me away, enthused

    And it's solid as a rock rolling down a hill
    The fact is that it probably will hit something
    On the hazardous terrain

    And were just following the flock, round
    And the in between, before we smash to smithereens
    Like they were, and we scrambled from the grain
    And its the fame that put words in her mouth
    She couldn't help, but spit em out
    Innocence and arrogance intwined
    In the filthiest of minds

    She's was bitten on her birthday, and now
    A face in the crowd, shes not
    And i suspect that now, forever the shape
    She came to escape, its forgot
    And it's a lot to ask and not to sting
    Give her less than everything
    Around your crooked conscious she will wind

    Cos were just following the flock round
    And the in-between
    Before we smash to smithereens
    Like they were, and we scramble from the grain
    And it's the fame that put words in her mouth
    She couldn't help, but spit em out
    Around your crooked conscious she will wind
    And it's a lot to ask and not to sting
    Giver her less than everything
    Innocence and arrogance intwined

  18. Red’s Insane Urbex

    Humbug vibes

  19. timmons jeff

    Alwayz fave to fave to fave....

  20. Yvzcn Club

    kaotik bir klip

  21. Jacq J

    That reverb on the guitar and on the vocals is just the goddamn cherry on top, it’s just one of those song where there’s a clear visual and it’s beautiful. Fuck this song is a masterpiece.

  22. nunemiyy

  24. Aimee Thomson

  25. エイレン

    why does this feel like it should be in a james bond soundtrack

    dora sind

    Because it has the '70s sound maybe.

  26. Ana Štuhec

    I never seem to get enough of this song. Even after all these years I keep coming back and it's like I'm listening to it for the first time everytime.

    Dreadful sycophantic referencing video for an amazing song. Aoyade aint no Orson Welles even if he steals some of his camera moves.

  34. Don't Forget The Hyphen

    I want Alex to sing me to sleep with this song.

  55. Priya Chowdhury

    ALEXA CHUNG >>>>> LITERALLY ANYONE ALEX EVER HAD OR WOULD HAVE. The best he ever had 😌. Also this video makes me sad coz the last scene of Chung walking away is hauntingly similar to the real life scenario of her walking away and em breaking up. Fucking tragic! :'))

    c o

    Agree I don't think puppets had much of support from monkeys fans Because the sound and lyrics are so different. For me I'm a fan of Alex's voice he could sing bar bar black sheep and I'd love it.
