All my best mistakes came with big brown eyes

Well I like fire as much as the next soul, my love.

But to set a whole city ablaze seems a step above.

We never intended harm to them did we, my dear?

Love was on our mind yet we inspired so much fear.

All my best mistakes came with big brown eyes.

You saw through all my self righteous prudish lies.

When you said I would be yours I knew I wouldn’t fight

For being the weaker sex I can never win try as I might

Weren’t you supposed to be loving another?

Is he not enough for your passion to smother?

I remember the night we lit the fire

It was the same moment I became a liar

Doing what I said I never would with a women who was not mine

Being a devil in the city of angels all the while feeling just fine

We stepped back hand in hand admiring the growing glowing flames

They stretched higher and higher as if to heaven exposing our shame

All my best mistakes came with big brown eyes

After the city burnt down we severed the ties

But I can still feel you in the dark of midnight

I still smell your skin when I am alone in moonlight

You will haunt me until I am dead

Playful words better left unsaid
