​Same Mistakes

This song is by Paper Aeroplanes and appears on the album We Are Ghosts (2011).

Leave it be
Don't make the same mistakes as me
'Cause I gave up quickly
To fly like a bird on the breeze
And I fell down swiftly
Shaking the fruit from the trees
Tearing holes in the knees of my jeans
So don't make the same mistakes as me

Save it please
Save the sweet simplicity
And you'll rise up gently
To float like a bird on the breeze
And you'll climb down slowly
Taking defeat gracefully
Treading soft on the soles of your feet

And you won't make the same mistakes as me

So let's rise up gently
Floating like birds on the breeze
And we'll take it slowly
Over the town and the trees
And we'll land where the sand meets the sea
We'll be soft on the soles of our feet
And we won't make the same mistakes as me
