A duet co-written and performed with Abbie Gardner from Red Molly.


I have made mistakes I have made them all
If I couldn’t run from trouble then I would crawl
when it came to mistakes I made them all

I had love in my life but I let it slip away
Leaving me to wonder at the end of the day
I built it up just to watch it fall
I had love in my life after all

When faced with a choice I often chose wrong
But even those bad choices moved me along
So I cannot regret what I’ve learned from my mistakes

I have let words fly from an angry mouth
Held back forgiveness and given into doubt
Then I slipped into silence
When I needed to shout

I have tripped and fallen so many times
I’ve got busies all over this heart of mine
But its lead me here, straight to you
As if I knew, as if I knew..

BR We have both been here so broken down
cracked wide open where love is found
The beating of our hearts fell right in time
Tapping out a rhythm that only the broken can find

So if this is the path that led me to you
I will bless each missed turned and every sky that wasn’t blue
And I will pray that I will learn from my mistakes
Yes I will pray that I learned from my mistakes
