​Room For Mistakes

This song is by Shearwater and appears on the album Everybody Makes Mistakes (2002).

Oh Michelle, where we dwell
There is room for mistakes
We'd make love on the fire escape
And as the neighbors all drove by
Their exhaust would spiral into the sky

Now you pick your earrings up off the nightstand
While I switch from my arm to my hand
As the morning streams through the blinds
Then I wake up again and it's 12:09

And we lived out of town
With no one to come around
So we slept in all day
Until your job took you away
Now Michelle, your smell won't leave my bed

I dreamed of a doctor
Here's what he said
"It's just as well as you're going to get"
