Vampire Weekend - My Mistake Lyrics




Skin under sun
Summer breeze
Summer break

Oh, I was young then
Hadn't made
My mistake

Unaware of the fall
Unaware of my fate

There was peace in the valley
'Til I made my mistake

Quick in the night
As the storm took its shape

Caught at the border

As I made my escape

It was cold
It was dark
You were cruel
You were fake

Hoping for kindness
Was my greatest mistake

I was young then
Hadn't made my mistake

There was choice to get out
Or remain in this state

There was springtime and future
'Til I made my mistake

Quick in the night
As the storm took its shape

Caught at the border

As I made my escape

It was cold
It was dark
You were cruel
You were fake

Hoping for kindness
Was my greatest mistake

Vampire Weekend My Mistake Comments
  1. Mila Leon

    this is the weirdest vw song and by far my favorite. life has been hard but seeing ezra & the band persevere gives me hope. <3

  2. Chuy Velasco

    Please someone tell me which song has that instrumental sax part too, or similar

  3. Brian Garoutte

    This album helped me to realize, I never liked Vampire Weekend, I liked Rostam (Batmanglij) - without hearing this extremely disappointing production by Ezra Koenig and his Vampire Weekend, I never would have found the seemingly endless list of heat that Rostam has continued to produce, from his OG works as Discovery, his Solo work, and fire collaboration with artists like Hamilton Leithauser.

    So Thanks Ezra and “Vampire Weekend” for showing your true colors on FOTB.

    Miles Elliot

    So why isn't Rostam's solo music as good as VW? Go listen to that. Ezra has ALWAYS had his hands in production.

  4. faster jonny

    reminds me of Tous les garçons et les filles... anyone?

  5. Alejo Sanz

    this is it

  6. LyanderTheGreat

    This one has the same enigmatic, sober sound as Hudson. I love your songs like this.

  7. Aiden Warrington

    This makes me feel calm and relaxed. Unlike general mainstream music, Alternative pop, and Independent music makes me feel good. Mainstream pop is bouncy, which energizes people, not saying it's a bad thing though.

    🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

  10. samuelthebulb

    Heavy amnesiac/kid a vibes from this

  11. Jose Eduardo CS

    The best, i cried a lot, straight to the heart, to my soul

  12. Myles Handler

    Beginning sure sounds like Neon Gravestones by Twenty One Pilots

  13. Thanos actually made some valid points

    Skin under sand, summer breeze, summer break...

  14. Luis Morales S

    This is already a classic for me

  15. Raleigh Joyner

    I love this Billie Holiday song

  16. cymophanous

    I got full body shivers listening to this on the train to work

  17. Nicholas Spadafora

    Gives me Halo ODST vibes, mostly from that Saxophone solo part (I think that’s what it is)

  18. Mike Tice

    This is prob my fav cut off this album

  19. Owen Pape

    This is my sad rainy depressing hand to the window song

    Love it tho

  20. Spicy Icey

    moomin...

  21. 0=Axel=0

    this is such a devastating piece of music

  22. Jon Won

    Zach korndiddy brought me here
    .. thanks kiddo

  23. Luis Morales S

    Really strong Bond vibes with this one

  24. 전문가손을 넣는

    this bacharach vibe is brilliant

  25. Melody Petras

    Besides Sunflower, this is my favorite song off this new album. Sick freaking job Ezra.

  26. Chelsea

    Woow this is wow

  27. Carlos

    minor keys, man

  28. Daniel Shin

    anyone thinks this sounds like baby grand

  29. faster jonny

    Does this song interpolate Francoise Hardy’s Tous le garçons et les filles? or no?

  30. Ana Torres

    Reminds me of Queen idk

  31. Tomato TCG

    Well they have redeemed themselves after their 2 bad album's starting 2019.

  32. brayden Terry

    This is actually one of my faves on the album. Reminds me of la la land and is lyrically genius. Not unlike the complete album which is unexpected and amazing

  33. David Fonseca de Oliveira

    ONE OF THE BESTS

  34. Krizzie

    piano and bass ❤❤❤

  35. eszapala

    Vampire Weekend: father of the bride: Sony music.

  36. primo

    Getting some radiohead vibes tbh

    Mouselett

    I love Radiohead! Although I hate Creep...

  37. Lisandro Chocobar

    Yes, this thing sounds like a John Lennon's lost gem

  38. jonny sunami

    ooh this one is real jazzy i dig it.

  39. Lauren Oliveira

    the instrumentals in this are.... something.

  40. Diego Gonzalez

    This is the White Album of the 21st century

    Ana Torres

    Steve Lacy is Eric Clapton and Danielle haim is Maureen starkey (I guess Maureen sang in the WA)

    Rory O'Connell

    No album will ever touch the White Album

    Ana Torres

    @Rory O'Connell It's indeed a masterpiece... But the similarity with fotb - imo - is that this one, like the WA consists in a variety of not really connected songs

    Artificial Gummies

    Yeah...this album is Unbearably White.

    danny moulton

    Since Modern Vampires I've considered Vampire Weekend as the Beatles of this century. That being said no one will ever touch the Beatles.

  41. Harry Prince

    This is maybe the closest Vampire Weekend tune to a bond song

  42. Jack LaLonde

    Santa Fe from Newsies

  43. Heather T

    Beautiful melody

  44. Pepper eater Live Stream

    Cool globe video! I could do without the music though.

    TRUE LYRICS lol
    Skin under sun
    Summer breeze, summer break
    Oh, I was young then
    Hadn't made my mistake
    Unaware of the fall
    Unaware of my fate
    There was peace in the valley
    'Til I made my mistake

    Quick in the night
    As the storm took its shape
    Caught at the border
    As I made my escape
    It was cold, it was dark
    You were cruel, you were fake
    Hoping for kindness
    Was my greatest mistake

    I was young then
    Hadn't made my mistake
    There was choice to get out
    Or remain in this state
    There was springtime and future
    'Til I made my mistake


    Quick in the night
    As the storm took its shape
    Caught at the border
    As I made my escape
    It was cold, it was dark
    I was foolish and lame
    Hoping for kindness
    Was my greatest mistake

    Framcesco Maria Carreri
