Review

January, 23rd 2017
Long as 4:11, this pleasant melody of the rock genre evokes autumn hues. Not melancholic, but when autumn whirls gold leafs and they circle in the city and passers-by enjoy a warm preparation for the upcoming inevitable season change. The guitar plays very soft; it makes the voice possible to envelop it completely, like a prickly scarf, which warms the best thanks to its wool thorns. Reference: Eels, 'Mistakes Of My Youth': NPR

Mistakes Of My Youth Song Lyrics


In the waning days ahead,
I gotta look back down the road.
I know that it's not too late.
All the stupid things I've said,
and people I've hurt in my time.
I hope it's not my fate
To keep defeating my own self,
and keep repeating yesterday.
I can't keep defeating myself,
I can't keep repeating,
the mistakes of my youth.
In the dark of night, I might
be able to make myself think
that I'm still a younger man.
But when the light of day shines down,
there's no way to get around it,
I'm not the younger man.
I keep defeating my own self,
and keep repeating yesterday.
I can't keep defeating myself,
I can't keep repeating,
the mistakes of my youth.
The choice is mine for making
a better road ahead
the road that I've been taking,
headed for a dead-end,
but it's not too late to turn around
In the final moments
I hope that I know that I tried
to do best I could
To stop defeating my own self
and stop repeating yesterday.
I can't keep defeating myself,
I can't keep repeating,
the mistakes of my youth.
