A Mistake - Fiona Apple

Words and Music: Fiona Apple
I?m gonna make a mistake-
I?m gonna do it on purpose
I?m gonna waste my time
Cuz I?m full as a tick
And I?m scratching at the surface
And what I find is mine
And when the day is done, and I look back
And the fact is I had fun, fumbling around
All the advice I shunned, and I ran
Where they told me not to run, but I sure
Had fun, so
I?m gonna f_ck it up again
I?m gonna do another detour
Unpave my path
And if you wanna make sense
Whatcha looking at me for
I?m no good at math
And when I find my way back,
The fact is I just may stay, or I may not
I?ve acquired quite a taste
For a well-made mistake
I wanna mistake why can?t I make a mistake?
I?m always doing what I think I should
Almost always doing everybody good
Why-
Do I wanna do right, of course but
Do I really wanna feel I?m forced to
Answer you, hell no
I?ve acquired quite a taste
For a well-made mistake, I wanna
Make a mistake, why can?t I make a mistake
I?m always doing what I think I should
Almost always doing everybody good
Why
