Mistake Lyrics

[Chorus: NF]
I feel like I'm at a standstill
Waiting for you to tell me I'm okay
If time heals, tell me, why do I kill
Myself tryna show you I'm not a mistake?
I've got qualities that I'm not proud of
I've made promises that I walked out on
I've had days I feel I don't deserve love
So think what you think, just don't call me a

[Verse 1: NF]
Mistake, might've made some
Can't argue with that, but I ain't one
Even though I sometimes get afraid of
Having to face the wrath of an anxious me
I get it 'cause I actually
Feel the same, sometimes I think
I might be a lost cause
Who turns off, 'cause the way I read
Into what I've been through
You think I'm mental, but it pays off though
When the rent's due, I pursue what I love
And if it goes south and falls down, just know
I stand on my own two feet
Don't you see those that oppose on me?
Most won't leave, thinking I might retreat
Show my teeth quick if you turn on me 'cause

[Chorus: NF]
I feel like I'm at a standstill
Waiting for you to tell me I'm okay
If time heals, tell me, why do I kill
Myself tryna show you I'm not a mistake?
I've got qualities that I'm not proud of
I've made promises that I walked out on
I've had days I feel I don't deserve love
So think what you think, just don't call me a—

[Post-Chorus: NF]
Just don't call me a—
Just don't call me a

[Verse 2: NF]
Mistake 'cause I'm not one
Misplaced, but I found a
Lot of resentment causes a mess
When you let it get to the place of
No confidence
Struggle with it, that's obvious
But not enough to make me second-guess
If I'd die for the ones I love
So don't you get confused, thinking if you bring me down
I'ma just choose to let myself get used
I don't live like that, I feel trapped
I might lash out, I gotta watch my back
Cross my path, 'specially with ill intent
You'll regret you ever took that task
If and when this thing could all go bad
Don't you act like no one warned you yet 'cause

[Chorus: NF]
I feel like I'm at a standstill
Waiting for you to tell me I'm okay
If time heals, tell me, why do I kill
Myself tryna show you I'm not a mistake?
I've got qualities that I'm not proud of
I've made promises that I walked out on
I've had days I feel I don't deserve love
So think what you think, just don't call me a
