Middle Kids - Mistake Lyrics




Oh, darling
Pick you up just to let you drop
We got started, I was guarded
I almost forgot about you
It was charming
The way we danced around the truth
You were smiling, always hiding
And then I feel we're somehow quickly, slowing

Thought I was healthy but I'm choking
It must be catching up my smoking
I wish that I never played

You're standing out in the rain, tonight
Like you got something to say, to God
And you got a debt to pay back
For something you did way back

You're standing out in the rain, tonight
Like you got something to say, to God
And you got a debt to pay back
For something you did way back
You wanna make it okay

What's the problem?
Spilling up some of my guts
One day you're fine, next you're crying
Suddenly your engine just stops going

Thought you were healthy but you're choking
It must be catching up your smoking
I wish that you never played

You're standing out in the rain, tonight
I give us something to say, to God
And you got a debt to pay back
For something you did way back

You're standing out in the rain, tonight
I give us something to say, to God
And you got a debt to pay back
For something you did way back
You wanna make it okay

You're standing out in the rain, tonight
I give us something to say, to God
And he's got a debt to pay back
For something he did way back

You're standing out in the rain, tonight
I give us something to say, to God
And you got a debt to pay back
For something you did way back
You wanna make it okay

Middle Kids Mistake Comments
  1. Khaled Alostath

    Spinning out Netflix

  2. Satanick! uwo

    we're all here because of the sims 😔

  3. Laura Gilbert

    Spinning out s1ep4 when jenn talks to serena - it reminds me of moving forward

  4. Magda léna

    The sims 4 has already showed me so many good songs! I mean really good songs💝

  5. Makejam

    I feel like I’ve seen the mother of Jesus with this song. It’s all the songs I’ve ever loved rolled into one and I have it on repeat til it makes me cry. (In the bit ‘pick you up just to let you drop’ it’s the same notes as ‘stand here taking every breath’ in Against All Odds by Phil Collins.)

  6. Paul Justice

    I almost gave the video a thumbs down for the styrofoam and plastic utensils. But the song is too good.

  7. Ben Fuller

    She's pregnant. My dreams are shattered 😉😂

  8. TadRaunch

    Not bad

  9. hbg423

    Sydney house was better

  10. João Carlos

    This has the innocent, naked vibe of going through a city avenue at 5 a.m. watching the city rise or driving on the highway with your lover on the passenger seat while you both watch the street signs mute of all light flow in the windshield with only the lighting poles illuminating them.

  11. Olivia Perry

    Anyone else here because Sims 4

  12. Felicity

    All I think of is some girl hugging me in the mosh pit when I listen to this song honesty makes it better

  13. Jenn Ross

    Love this band, their sound.
    Have a HUGE crush on the lead singer.

  14. boontown

    Camera Obscura

  15. lafemmelily

    so beautiful

  16. ReformedOrderPart2

    This gives me a feel from the group The Cranberries. Similar vibe here. :-)

  17. ThatKiwiGuy

    Sims 4 + Shazam = me being here 😊

  18. mayanroses 1

    Among the best choruses I have heard in my entire life.

    Gilbert Aguilar

    Guitar and Lyrics, right!?

  19. Peter Evans

    Very Delores from the Cranberries crossed with Belinda Carlisle. Joyful

  20. Dio Brando

    On the sims 4 cover of this song, I thought it was a guy with a feminine voice singing.

  21. Father Chubblin

    For a moment I thought I was going insane because I heard this song in Sims 4. I instantly recognised it as it came on the 'alternative' radio. I'm confused as to whether or not they just edited the audio of the lyrics or got the band to record a whole different set of jumbled lyrics. Interesting.

  22. Kenneth Wolf

    This song is relatively new to me and I have had on repeat for days! I'm ready now to discover all of Middle Kids music!

  23. Axel Wilkens

    IDE do regrettable things to this woman shes amazing

    I feel like this is what it must have been like when Florence and the Machine or the Cranberries started off... Saw them at Life is Beautiful last year and they were great!

  72. Jeffrey Stith

    How does one never crack a million views yet end up on Jimmy Kimmel and GMA? Don't get me wrong, I like Middle Kids sound. I heard them once and i had to learn more about them. I just want to get my girl Alice Phoebe Lou more exposure. I think she's the future of music and talented enough to start a movement.

  73. mkl62

    Thanks for posting.

  74. Troy Nelson

    If this was the only song I ever wrote and recorded, I’d be happy with my legacy. But I bet she’s got more where that came from....

  75. echoeman

    Music is getting good again.

  76. Galiyev

    Middle Kids'in ilk dinleyicilerinden olduğum için şanslıyım

  77. Colleen Crete

    I honestly thought this was a leaked cranberries track I’ve never herd before when I first heard this song. Holy shit. She sounds EXACTLY like Delores. I can’t handle it. And I love ittttttt.

  78. Chris Guevara

    Oh, my darling, pick you up just to let you drop
    When we got started, I was guarded
    I almost forgot about you
    It was charming, the way we danced around the truth
    We were smiling and always hiding
    And when I feel we're somehow quickly slowing

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Thought I was healthy but I'm choking
    It must be catching up my smoking
    I wish that I never played

    [Chorus]
    You're standing out in the rain tonight
    Like you've got something to say to God
    And you got a debt to pay back
    For something you did way back
    You're standing out in the rain tonight
    Like you got something to say to God
    And you got a debt to pay back
    For something you did way back
    You wanna make it okay

    [Verse 2]
    What's the problem? Spilling up some of my guts
    One day you're fine, the next you're crying
    And suddenly your engine just stops going


    [Pre-Chorus]
    Thought you were healthy but you're choking
    It must be catching up your smoking
    I wish that you never played

    [Chorus]
    You're standing out in the rain tonight
    Like you've got something to say to God
    And you got a debt to pay back
    For something you did way back
    You're standing out in the rain, tonight
    Like you've got something to say to God
    Have you got a debt to pay back
    For something you did way back?
    You wanna make it okay

    NobodyLikesYouAnd Nobody

    Ohhhh I thought she was saying "something to say to her"

    Crystal Crous

    Thanks 👌

  79. Clyde R Troutman

    Great song. Saw them on Kimmel. I like the live session video a little better. Seems the production of the instrumentals brings out the guitar solo better.

  80. Andrea Kollars

    Heard them for the first time on Jimmy Kimmel tonight! Love them.....sound a lot like the Cranberries. I am a 75 year old Great Grandma, who loves all kinds of music! AC/DC is, just, one of my favorites!

  81. Preeti and Mandeep Singh

    Sounds like every single Manic Street Preachers song, ever...well done!

  82. Aywol

    Songs like this make me glad I started listening to triple j again, otherwise I'd have never heard it. Awesome song.

  83. comrade hermit

    Such a great fucking song. Why isn't this band a household name? We live on such a stupid fucking planet. Thank god for good music.

  84. smasher0722

    The dude with the overalls= giddy up

    smasher0722

    Holy crap... bootoob wants more words.?..

  85. Bert Morris

    “Mistake”? No, they nailed it. (Irony anyone?)

  86. -manuela-

    Found this in the Sims 4 :)
    Now I gotta check the others :)

  87. Erick Escoto

    The other day I was searching in the internet about this song, and I discovered that there is another version, but in a different language, however I couldn't find which idiom was.

  88. Stranger Traveling

    Check out the guitar. That lead singer is playing a right handed guitar flipped upside down, because she's a left handed guitarist.

  89. Brandon Aha

    Gosh, I first saw them at Life is Beautiful and instantly fell in love with them 😭

  90. mayanroses 1

    Thank you 91.7-The Revolution, Bowling Green, KY

  91. Frank Ratchford

    Love this song!!! Hope to see them soon

  92. sealless

    There is no upper limit on the number of times in a row that I will listen to this song.

  93. Jess Phillips

    I'm so excited for the album!! I love this song so much

  94. Welcome To My World

    So fucking good <3! This Band is pretty cool!!!

  95. Jay Young

    Damn!!! A beautiful woman who can sing, dance and play guitar...I'm smitten....love your stuff....don't stop

  96. Rafael Arsuffi

    i came here thanks to the sims 4
