You can guard your heart forever
Keep it safe and keep it sound
But love won't feel so heavy
If you spread that shit around

What it is that you're afraid of
Being hurt, let down, destroyed?
Well, you know it all can happen
And there's more you can't avoid

You're a diehard, you're a radical
A fighter through and through
So tell me why you're so afraid of
a cause that's new
and true, like me and you

So man up, break out, dive in
There's no knowing how it ends
Until you got up and begin

Climb in, breathe deep, hold on
You can't know how good it gets
Til you go or til it's gone

Be lost, be wary, be afraid
But don't hide out in the dug-out
While that final game is played
Make that trade
I'll be the best worst mistake you ever made

[Spoken]
Really? Sports metaphors?
Really
[Spoken]

It's not that I don't love you
Cause I don't not love you
And I'd lie to say
I'm never sometimes always thinking of you

But when something's deeply felt
It'd seem shallow just to say
The thing that's expected, the same dull cliché
Life's short, you're sweet, you're so fine
(...., you're panicked, in a sweat)
You're the one, please be mine
(it's the nightmare of a life ..., best you'll ever get)

'Cause you're in love
(Love is sweet)
Love's a bitch
(Love is nice)
Love's a queen
(Let it go)
Love's a witch
(Pay that price)
Love is joy
(Love's a bore)

Who loves you?
I love you (x4)
For all time (x3)

You tricked me into saying that

It's too late
It's done
You're through
Cause I said it and you said it
And I know you meant it too

So man up, break out, dive in
There's no knowing how it ends
Until at last we both begin

We're lost, we're lonely, we're afraid
But the sun will still be shining
When we come out of the shade

I'll be the best worst mistake you've ever made
(best worst mistake)

I'll be the best worst mistake you've ever made
(best worst mistake)

I'll be the best worst mistake you've ever made
(best worst mistake)
