​I Made A Mistake

This song is by The Impressions and appears on the album Keep On Pushing (1964).

I made a mistake, yes I did yes I did
I made a mistake, yes I did
Now myself I hate
For it was me and not fate
Who lost because of my mistake

I sent away the girl I love
I said I sent away the girl I love
She ran from me hurt cryin'
Now my hearts slowly dying
Fool is he who made the mistake
My trust in her has come, much too late

Woe what a fool I've been tonight
The girl I love forever out of sight
Now myself I hate
For it was me and not fate
Who lost because of my mistake
My trust in her has come, much too late

She ran from me hurt cryin'
Now my hearts slowly dying
Fool is he who made the mistake
My trust in her has come, much too late

Oh, what a fool I've been
My true love has...
